American Idol 2013 L.A. and San Antonio Auditions: Live Recap (VIDEO)

We have two more nights of auditions on American Idol 2013, so this is the last of the funny and horrible auditions you will see on American Idol Season 12. The new American Idol judges 2013 (Mariah Carey, Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj and Randy Jackson) make their way to both Los Angeles and San Antonio tonight on American Idol 12. People move to L.A. to make it in the business, but will they be able to make it on American Idol 2013? Find out during my American Idol 2013 Live Recap and see who made it to Hollywood Week on American Idol Season 12!


We are getting closer and closer to knowing if the rumors are true for the Top 40 on American Idol 2013, so this week could not end any sooner. There are quite a few names on that list we have not see or heard of yet, so maybe Los Angeles and San Antonio will treat American Idol 2013 with some great talent? I am sure it might, but we will focus more and more on the crappy auditions and the people that are delusional and think they can sing! Find out tonight during my American Idol 2013 Live Recap!


The following post contains American Idol 2013 spoilers and videos for the American Idol Season 12 Los Angeles and San Antonio auditions. Please stop reading if you do not want to know what happened!


Things get started in San Antonio tonight…returning singer Vincent Powell is up first and he is a huge Mariah fan, so he is excited to meet her. He made it to the end of Hollywood Week last season and he will give it another shot, as he gets four yes votes from the judges.

Our first duo of Season 12, as brothers Derek and David Bacerott make their way in front of the judges. They are in a league of their own and the judges give them four quick no votes! They argue with the judges and get that camera time that they wanted on American Idol 2013!

The brothers take some time getting out of the room, but right after them Savannah Votion comes in and wows the judges. She is a young mother of a five-year-old and the judges loved her and her voice, so they send her to Hollywood.

I think either Alicia Keys just auditioned for American Idol Season 12, or Cristabel Clack stole her voice. She sounds just like her and Cristabel rocked it and she gets a Golden Ticket.

Randy Jackson met Ann Difani in Arkansas when he surprised her at an Arkansas Razorback football game. She was nominated by her husband Justin and now she gets a chance to sing for the judges. Keith said she has a pretty tone and the other judges agree and give her that Golden Ticket.

You sing mariachi on the street, but then come in and sing Fergie for your audition? It had the judges intrigued, but they wanted Victoria Acosta to connect to the song more and had her sing mariachi and they loved it and give her a Golden Ticket!

With the good also comes the bad, as we get a quick look at some of the bad auditions in San Antonio. Do you like the bad auditions?

Trying to change that, Papa Peachez comes in and I am annoyed. He claims that people just see a cute, little white boy when they see him, but there is so much more to him. I look at him and don’t see that. Do you? He sings his own song and I am annoyed with him, but Nicki likes him. Randy and Keith say no and Mariah and Nicki say yes. Randy has the final say and he sends Papa Peachez to Hollywood. What????

Sanni M’Mairura thinks he can be the next American Idol and I kind of agree, as he tackles a Michael Jackson song. Nicki said his runs were pretty and he had a great audition. The judges all loved him and send him to Hollywood.

Another shocker, as Adam Sanders surprised me, the judges and America with his voice. I thought he would be terrible, but he was amazing and the judges give him a ticket to Hollywood. Were you shocked?

Los Angeles auditions now and Mariah is stuck in traffic and Nicki had a prior arrangement, so it is just Keith and Randy for now. Shubha Vedula is up first and not disappointed it is just the guys and knocks their socks off when she sings, so of course they send her to Hollywood, right down the road!

Mariah Carey has arrived and Brian Martinez is first. He was found singing in a bathroom and told to audition for American Idol, which turns out to be a bad thing and he gets a no and is headed back to the bathroom!

Matt Farmer was injured while serving in Iraq and brought his daughter with him to prove you should never give up. He doesn’t have to give up anytime soon, as he is given a Golden Ticket!

Stephanie Sanson has purple hair with pink tips and apparently sang Adele, but all she did was scream and it did not sound like that song. She screams her way out of the room and is headed home.

The rehearsals are over for Nicki, so she arrives and all four judges are back for Jesaiah Baer, who happens to sound very good, but the fire alarm goes off on the Queen Mary and everyone must get off the boat??? The fire alarm gets taken care off and she comes back to audition and the judges love her, so she gets a Golden Ticket.

The last audition of day one in L.A. is Micah Johnson, who recently had his tonsils removed and the doctor hit some nerves and now he talks with a speech impediment. What is up with these people who can’t talk, but then sing amazingly well? His story gave me chills and he sounded great and the judges, of course, send him to Hollywood!

Rachel Hale is rumored to be in the Top 40, so here is her audition and she does well and the judges love her, but I am not a huge fan. Were you? She gets her Golden Ticket!

Bullied for appearing on Maury? That is what Briana Oakley said happen to her and she had to switch schools because she was afraid. She was one for being a rising star, not for a paternity test! How does that happen? Of course, she sings great and gets her Golden Ticket.

The last audition of the day for American Idol 2013 will bring us to tears, so prepare yourselves! We have a little nugget on our hands, but Matheus Fernandes is cute. He has always felt different and this is his chance to shine. Shine is what he did and he brought me to tears and I am a huge fan! He is going to Hollywood!
