American Idol stopped by two cities over two hours last night, as hopefuls auditioned in San Antonio and Los Angeles.
The most buzzed-about name to come out of the latest Season 12 episode? Papa Peachez, 19-year Mississippi native who sang an original track and described himself as "a big black woman trapped in a little boy's body."
Intrigued? Listen to his audition now and decide if he deserved a ticket to Hollywood:
Also making strong impressions on the judges and the views:
- Adam Sanders, who left the panel speechless with his take on Etta James' "At Last."
- Briana Oakley, a 16-year old who was forced to change schools due to bullying and who won the judges over with Patty Griffin's "Up to the Mountain."
- Matheus Fernandes, a really short 21-year old who broke down in tears after getting praise for his version of "A Change Is Gonna Come.
