Fox doesn't admit it was trying to beat it's former ratings juggernaut but I think it's safe to say that had something to do with it. As with last night's premiere, the judges seemed to especially favor singer-songwriters in tonight's batch of auditions. Bryan even stated, "She may be the next damn Jennifer Lopez".
Brandon, a 21-year-old college student from Ashburn, VA, who now resides in Boston, MA, sang "Unaware" by Allen Stone and received three yeses from the judges. It will be interesting to see if the rivalry continues throughout the season. However, Garrett received a golden ticket.
Next up was William Casanova, singing "A Song For You" by Donny Hathaway. Michelle Sussett lives in Miami and is originally from Venezuela.

Lionel said it was really good but there were things she needed to tone down. Katy and Treavor did some major flirting, but alas, he has a girlfriend. and a golden ticket.
Sohmer - who goes by the stage name Samothias, a nickname his dad gave him as a kid - said he wasn't much of a singer until Wheaton North vocal music director Kassy Krause encouraged him to join show choir. On that show, she was knocked out of the competition following her top 12 finals performance.
Next up, Thaddeus Johnson sang "Don't You Worry Child" by Swedish House Mafia. Although Trevor broke Katy's heart by being in a relationship with someone else, the three judges determined he must go to Hollywood. According to Newsweek, we can expect to see Wes and Jacob Lowrey, of Lenapah, and Rissa Watson, of Apache, in the coming days. Rissa doesn't want to sell furniture and chose to give her musical dream a shot on "American Idol". Giving it his all, vehicle crash survivor David Francisco was the last performance of the night. Francisco was hit by a auto after moving to Nashville, resulting in paralysis from the waist down. It was another three-yes vote to end the night.
The new season of "American Idol", which airs Sundays and Mondays, premiered March 11.
