American Idol 2014 Spoilers - Detroit Auditions

Things kicked off last week on American Idol 2014 and the auditions got off to a great start, even though the ratings did not support them. There have been many changes to American Idol Season 13, including the new judges. This has brought on a great vibe and it is fun watching them interact with each other and the singers. They are giving good feedback and not always sugarcoating it, which is helpful to these singers. In the end, 79 singers got that ticket to Hollywood Week on American Idol 2014!

Here we go…I guess there singers are not just doing it for them, but they are doing it for Detroit! Up first is Keri Lynn Roche, who is from Detroit. She sings “Radioactive” with the guitar, but Keith Urban stops her and wants to hear a song without the guitar. She takes on Etta James and she nails it. Jennifer Lopez she loves her style. Harry said she is the type of singer that is in her head and digs that. It is three yes votes and she is going to Hollywood!

We take some quick looks at what Detroit has to offer and they bring some ups and downs, but we see some more Golden Tickets handed out by the judges.

Malaya Watson is only 15 years old and a tony little thing, but she is in the band and plays the tuba! I like her spunk and personality and hope the voice matches. Indeed, it does match and she is so smooth and easy. Jennifer said she is blessed and God gave her something real and special. Malaya is going to Hollywood.

We go from young to old, as Bryan Watt comes in and is 29 years old and it is his last chance. He has a simple and pure country voice and he impresses me! Harry said it was a confident, patient and easy performance and thinks he is Superman! Keith told him not to be afraid to show a little more ache, but it was a great song choice! Bryan is headed to Hollywood and Detroit is starting strong.

Next up is Khristian D’avis and she has a decent voice, but she seems to be trying too hard. Keith said it seemed inconsistent and pitchy at times. Jennifer loved her style and her voice, but it didn’t feel connected. Harry said there is a real way and a fake way to connect and he would like to see that in Hollywood, so she gets her ticket.

Khristian D’avis – Saving All My Love For You… by IdolxMuzic

We are really talking up Detroit tonight on American Idol 2014, huh? Jena Asciutto comes in and quit her band about eight months ago, but wants to continue to write music. I think she has a alright voice, so maybe she should just stick to writing songs? Harry noticed she was putting her tongue and closing off things, but that is a quick fix. Jennifer said she loves when you hear a popular song and they sing it totally different. Keith loved her voice and style and she is headed to Hollywood.

After some bad auditions on American Idol Season 13, we now get to see Melanie Porras and her backstory with her Dad, who was a singer but gave it up to take care of her. Jennifer thinks she made a safe choice, so wants to hear another song. She sings “Wanted Dead or Alive” and the judges are in love. She is very gracious and gets her ticket to Hollywood.

Melanie Porras – Fever & Wanted Dead or Alive… by IdolxMuzic

Liam Newberry is a fan of Harry Connick, Jr. and brings that old-school sound with his voice. I love this style, but they never seem to do well on the show. What do you think? Keith said there is a normal sexiness with that style and he didn’t get it. Harry said he has been taught wrong and needs more passion, but he does not think he is ready now. The judges agree and it is a no for him.

Liam Newberry – The Way You Look Tonight… by IdolxMuzic

Jade Lathan is up next and I am liking her style. She sings some Amy Winehouse and she has some very good moments, but then it sounds bad at times. Harry said she is adorable and looks fresh and sweet and nice and did some things he did not expect. Jennifer said the whole package is right and it feels good. She is headed to Hollywood.

Sarah Scherb has a good voice and gets a ticket to Hollywood, but her Dad works for Delta Airline and Harry does a little dig at Jennifer and it is great and so funny! Sydney Arterbridge is a little nugget and she can get up in those notes. Harry said there is a lot of talent there, so she gets a ticket to Hollywood.

Sydney Arterbridge – Loving You – American Idol 13 by IdolxMuzic

Now we have Maurice Townsend, who is from Grand Rapids….my city! He is a father of four and a church guy and you can tell it with his voice. Keith said he just felt like he was gone and in the audience watching his show. Harry said he is the one that should have recorded that song. His beautiful kids come in and give him the ticket to Hollywood!

Maurice Townsend – So High – American Idol 13 by IdolxMuzic

We are now into Day 2 on American Idol auditions 2014 in Detroit. David Oliver Willis made it to the Vegas rounds during Season 12 before he got cut. He is not back and trying to make it even further this season. He has a great voice and nails the Alex Clare song. Jennifer said it felt right. Harry said the guitar drives his vocals and American Idol makes him put down the guitar a lot and how will he do without it. Keith thinks he has a great voice and loves it. He gets the ticket to Hollywood, but Harry does not think he will win.

We have some twins on American Idol 2014, as Karlita and Rakita Gulledge make their way in front of the American Idol judges 2014. They claim to have natural talent, but this is not good at all. Harry said it was a minute of screaming. Jennifer said it was like a high school talent show and out of tune. The twins are sent home.

Some nos from the judges then bring in Brandy Neelly, who has auditioned for Idol a few times and Jennifer recognized her. Keith loved the song and her performance. Jennifer thought it was good, but thought it had a nasally affect to it. Harry and Jennifer were torn with the nasally sound, but she still makes it to Hollywood.

Brandy Neelly – Wanted – American Idol 13 by IdolxMuzic

Ethan Harris is a big fan of Keith Urban and drew a picture of him and has him sign it. The picture is actually very well done. Harry said his talking voice is the same way as his singing voice, which you don’t see much, but it is good. The judges seem to be in love with him, but I am not a huge fan of his voice and it seems annoying to me. He gets three yes votes and is going to Hollywood!

Ethan Harris – You’ll Think of Me – American… by IdolxMuzic

We see a few singers that make it to Hollywood after the judges had some disagreements on them, but then it is time for Ayla Stackhouse to audition. She is from Detroit, but lives in Hollywood now…how ironic is that? She sings Little Mix for the audition and it is a tough song to sing and she has some rough patches, but I may like her. Jennifer feels she has a whole package thing going on and there is some star quality there. Welcome to Hollywood, Ayla.

Eric Gordon gets some dirty jokes from Keith regarding a blow dryer, but then sings and he has a good tone there. The judges are all impressed by him and want to see more, so he is going to Hollywood Week on American Idol 2014!

We look at the judges handing out some nos to singers that need to hear it. Ryan Nisbett maxed out at 300 pounds and went gluten and dairy free and is now here and looking like a hipster, art student. He totally got rid of that weight, so maybe I should go gluten free? Back to the audition and he has a good voice, but some of those notes were rough. Jennifer said one of a kind. Harry said it is an incredibly unique voice and he hopes people give it a chance in the context of American Idol. Ryan gets his ticket to Hollywood.

We started American Idol Season 13 with a quick look at Marrialle Sellars, but we never saw much from it. Here she is now and auditioning in Detroit. Her Dad was her biggest musical inspiration and even built a studio for her and her sisters. He passed away in 2008 and now she is here to make him proud. She has an amazing personality and her voice is so good and I just love her. Probably my favorite of the season so far and she is going to Hollywood!

We added 40 new Golden Tickets tonight, which brings the total to 119 for Season 13 so far! What do you think of the American Ido auditions 2014 tonight?
