American Idol Season 7 - Charleston Auditions

Very strange show. 23 people got golden tickets to go to Hollywood, but we are shown only 4...

The Good

And it's a relative term. I didn't think anyone really stood out from the Charleston's auditions. Meh.

Michelle Lampkin 26, Fort Mill SC and Jeffrey Lampkin 24, Newberry SC

Brother and sister auditioning together. They sing “I’m Your Angel” by R. Kelly and Celine Dion. While Jeffrey sounds better than his sister, Simon just "can't seperate those two". So they both go through.

Amy Katherine Flynn 16, Knoxville, TN


Captain of her dance team and member of a group that lectures students on abstinence, Amy comes off as a bit annoying. She sings “Reflections” by Christina Aguilera, not very well I might say, but she still goes through.

London Weidberg 24, Sullivan’s Island, SC


London sings “Good Morning Heartache” by Billie Holliday. She's got a really good voice despite it not being very unique. She goes through.

Lindsey Goodman, 24


Lindsey is an airforce pilot. She sings “Black Velvet” by Alannah Myles. She was obviously VERY nervous, but I liked the tone of her voice, and I think she has potential. The judges didn't let her go through. I thought she should have.

The Bad

We saw a lot of bad auditions this episode, with many delusional people who argue with the judges, well with Simon.

Raysharde Henderson 27, Atlanta GA


He sings “I Can’t Make You Love Me” By Bonnie Raitt. I think under all the theatrics (and the enormous afro) might be a good voice hiding. But this was so over the top... WOW.

DeAnna Prevatte 26, Albermarle NC


She angrily sang her way through “Fancy” by Reba McEntire. Yikes!

Crystal Ortiz, 26 Raleigh, NC and Randy Stark, 27 Abilene, TX


They met on the American Idol Board. They auditioned together. They are shown the door. Ouch!

Aretha Codner 22, Buffalo, NY


A very confident Aretha sings “I Who Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston. Simon tells her she's not good, and that it would be no. She argues so much that the security guards start walking her towards the door... Bad, bad, bad.

Joshua Boson 20, Beaufort, SC


Singing, no wait, screeching his way through “And I Am Telling You” by Jennifer Hudson, this guy is the portrait of delusional. WOW.

Oliver Highman 27, Cornelius, NC


New daddy (the baby was born during the auditions apparently) sings “Get Here” by Oleta Adams, and he is terrible. Oh.
