AceShowbiz - "American Idol" season 18 aired its final night of auditions on Sunday, March 15. The episode opened with Robert Taylor who opted to perform "Bruises" by Lewis Capaldi in front of the judges, Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan. It was undeniably an epic performing, earning Robert three yeses and a ticket to Hollywood.
Following him up was Jafar Hurambi. He sang "Famous" by The Pussycat Dolls while dancing. The judges, however, didn't think he was ready for Hollywood. Singing The Highwomen's "Crowded Table" next was Grace Leer. The judges loved it and sent her to Hollywood. Joining her in heading to Hollywood was Franklin Boone after he impressed the judges with a performance of "Dreams" by Fleetwood Mac.
Luke Stafford was the next performer, but he failed to captivate the judges' hearts. Roselyn Carter then appeared, singing "So High" by John Legend and that was exactly what the judges were looking for. Offering a powerful performance was Megan Knight. She successfully nabbed a golden ticket to Hollywood.
Gilberto Rivera later got Katy excitedly dancing as he showed off his skills by performing "Proud Mary" by Tina Turner. Unsurprisingly, he was sent to Hollywood. Aliana Jester also secured a golden ticket after belting out "Who's Lovin' You" by the Jackson 5. Jahzan and Jordan Moyes also amazed the judges and headed to Hollywood.
Demi Rae performed next, singing a rendition of "Mad at You" by Noah Cyrus. It was a solid performance and the judges gave her a golden ticket. Getting three yes from the judges later was Makayla Brownlee, who stunned them with a performance of "Travelin' Soldier" by Dixie Chicks. Concluding the night was Amber Field who opted to belt out Etta James' "Trust in Me".
