It’s week two of season 17 (two on ABC) of “American Idol” and the episode got off to a good start with a familiar face and a little sing a long with the judges. Gator hunter Laine returned to play for friend Ashton and they both walked out with a golden ticket.
Country boy Austin sang “Your Man” – the song that had Idol fans going crazy for Scotty McCreery – and danced around a bit and earned a golden ticket with a yes from the guys and then put on a little roping demonstration sitting on Luke’s shoulders.
Jake’s song choice of “This is How We Do It” had Luke and Katy dancing – including the worm from Katy – and got his ticket to Hollywood.
But along with the good performances were hopefuls who were definitely not ready to quite their day job.
Drake chose the spiritual “His Eye is on the Sparrow” for his audition and had Katy joining in. Then they did “O Happy Day from “Sister Act”. Drake got his ticket to Hollywood.
And eight other singers got their golden tickets to Hollywood.
Next week the auditions continue…
