Lil Rounds, Casey Carlson Lead Second Night of American Idol Auditions

by at . Comments

While the opening night of American Idol was dominated by Katrina Darrell and her bikini, the second installment of season eight auditions revealed a few contenders.

Foremost among them? Lil Rounds, a singer Randy Jackson referred to as a mixture of Fantasia and Mary J. Blige. Wow. Should we just hand her the trophy right now?

Here's a look at the five contestants that impressed us the most last night:

  • Ashley Anderson: From Clarksburg, NJ; sang “Footprints in the Sand “ by Leona Lewis 
  • Casey Carlson: From Minneapolis, MN; sang “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton 
  • Asa Barnes: From Kansas City, MO; sang  “The Way You Make Me Feel” By Michael Jackson 
  • Von Smith: From Greenwood, MO sang “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” 
  • Lil Rounds: From Memphis, TN; sang “All I Do” by Stevie Wonder

Von Smith, left, was all business last night; while bikini photos of contestant Casey Carlson have already surfaced online. Might one of these be the next American Idol?
