We like the confidence - but we loved the voice and the fact that she's moving on to Hollywood. Check out her audition of Faith Hill's "Stronger" now:

Aside from Whitaker, here are a few names to keep in mind from the Dallas auditions last night:

  • Kady Malloy (follow our link to hear her Britney Spears impression!)
  • Colton Swon
  • Kayla Hatfield
  • Jessica Brown
  • Kyle Ensley

No sighting yet of Carly Hennessy - the singer with a professional background who many have dubbed an early season favorite - but we'll keep you posted!

Did we leave anyone out? Who was your favorite contestant on last night's American Idol?

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
