Season two finalist and CT resident Kimberley Locke gives us a whole recap. Coming up next, yet another contestant from our area, Mara Justine from Galloway, N.J. gets her chance to sing for the judges Monday night. The charismatic 17 year old skips school to audition in NY with a cutesy original folk-pop tune called "21st Century Machine".
The rest of the night ambles along at a familiar pace, as we're mostly introduced to decent singers like bespectacled goofball Catie Turner from Langhorne, Pennsylvania, who refers to the boom mic above her as a "corn cob" and laments, "What if Katy Perry thinks I'm unusual?"
As a new age of "American Idol" begins, we look back on some of the best past auditions.
The 19-year-old shared a special moment with judge Katy Perry after his confession that he had never been kissed.
Benjamin started his performance a bit flustered by the unplanned kiss, and all three judges declined to send him to Hollywood. The panel applauded his ability to make such music from such a bare but beloved instrument, and his golden ticket capped an unexpectedly moving first night.

Thaddeus Johnson, from Oklahoma City, OK: He made it to Hollywood during Season 9 in 2010, but didn't go any further.
"Once you're in front of the judges, it is very quick".
"There are incredible voices on the show this year", said Kris Pooley. Trevor sang Brett Young's "In Case You Didn't Know", changing the lyrics to "In case you didn't know/Katy, I'm insane 'bout you".
Lionel agreed with Katy that the music industry is "an identity business", so he said "no" as well. The judges are blown away and he gets his golden ticket. "Katy said she could see herself listening to my voice all day with a drink in her hand".
"You are an inspiration to us all", Richie shared. He strums his battered guitar and sings a star-making rendition of "Unaware" by Allen Stone.
