Creighton Fraker is unique. Let's all agree on that. The guy conducted a sword fight with a fire hydrant during his pre-performance montage on American Idol last night.

But give the season 11 contestant credit for embracing his quirks and telling the audience: "You have to be who you are." Fraker then went out and sang the perfect song to go along with that theme: Cyndi Lauper's "True Colors."

According to Steven Tyler, Chase Likens resembles Brendan Frazer and made many "mummies" at home happy last night.

No, really, that was the response the Aerosmith singer delivered to this American Idol hopeful following his live audition of "Storm Warning." Jennifer Lopez, meanwhile, agreed that, yes, Likens has "movie star good looks," which may bode well with the ladies.

Jeremy Rosado is a really nice guy. That's what the American Idol judges were telling us over and over last night, with Randy Jackson pointing to the way Rosado comforted many hopefuls during opening auditions.

That's great and all - but it's never a good sign, show wise, when the panel is talking more about your heart than your voice.

Oh, how we miss Simon Cowell. He would have torn into Eben Franckewitz last night.

Not that we want to see a 15-year old cry on stage, but let's be honest: this Justin Bieber lookalike is not ready for primetime, and certainly not ready to try his voice on an Adele single.
