American Idol episode showcases Oklahoma City auditions

“You are a whole party all by yourself,” Jackson said.
“Obama if you watching this and you don't invite me to the White House,” Zoanette said. Mmmmkay, she's pretty full of her talent. The judges are like, “What?”
And yet, she got the coveted gold pass to Hollywood Week. That was unexpected. This doesn't bode well.
Tears on the river
Next, a bunch of people were let through to Hollywood and got very emotional, crying in sheer happiness and utter despair.
Contestant 78693, Anastacia, of Ardmore, was “So happy to be here,” she could hardly keep herself together. Then she fell. Trend story?
So she took off her shoes and all seemed well.
“I am the next ‘American Idol,” she said, “I was born for this. Let me know whenever ya'lls ready.”
She proceeded to butcher Toni Braxton's “Unbreak my Heart.” Unless there's another Zoanette-style surprise, she's not making it through.
She won't be listening to Mariah Carey anymore, by the way, and she heard Nicki Minaj worships the devil. Great impression “American Idol” is giving of Oklahoma to the rest of the world, here.
Hold on to your heartstrings
Kayden Stephenson, 16, of Tulsa was next. He is a darling blonde young man.
“By looking at me, people would never think I have something wrong with me,” Stephenson said.
He has cystic fibrosis which makes him look very young.
“My life expectancy is 35 years old,” he said.
He sang a sweet version of “I Wish” by Stevie Wonder.
“I think girls will fall on the floor when you walk in the room,” Carey said.
Stephenson got a resounding “yes” from the judges.
44 more folks from the Oklahoma round of auditions made it through to Hollywood week.
One last auditioner… and she's a cross-dresser who looks suspiciously like Steven Tyler.
Former “American Idol” judge Steven Tyler was the final auditioner at “American Idol” Oklahoma City auditions. He did not make it to Hollywood Week.
