American Idol 2012 San Diego auditions

American Idol 2012 auditions keep on rolling with the latest callback auditions. Well, let’s make that the auditions just finished after one final round of callback performances this weekend in San Diego.

The judges team followed up their Aspen callbacks last week with one more stop in sunny California where they spent two days, Sunday and Monday, listening to over a hundred performers competing for a chance at the golden tickets.

That was the consensus during Monday’s brief news conference on the U.S.S. Midway, in which “American Idol” judges Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler waxed über-enthusiastic over the quality of talent they saw during the second round of local auditions.

“Today was good, but yesterday was amazing,” Jackson said of this two-day callback round, where the contestants who made it through the mass auditions held at Petco Park in July sang for the three judges for the first time.

Nearly ten thousand singers had turned out over the summer for the American Idol 2012 auditions, so there were a lot of options to pick from and it sounds like they didn’t disappoint. “Amazing” is what we needed to hear after finding out the Aspen auditions consisted of “5 out of 10″ rated singers.

American Idol returns in January 2012 for the new season, so just a few more months to keep busy. I’m sure we’ll have more news along the way so stay close by. In the meantime, are you checking out X Factor USA for more Simon and Paula?
