American Idol 2013: Charlotte Auditions Episode Live Discussion

American Idol 2013 auditions in Charlotte

Tonight on American Idol 2013 the judges head to Charlotte for more auditions and while we will have our recap posted shortly (Charlotte auditions recap here), here’s an open thread for readers to share and discuss the episode.

We know there will be drama between the divas. We’ve been waiting for this episode since October. But there will also be talent. Lots of talent, and like Clay Aiken said, that’s what this season should be about: the singers.

So join us in our Idol Chat Room , start posting your thoughts in the Comments section below, or check out Reality Rewind’s live recap. Feel free to discuss your favorite singers, try to figure out a new song, or vent your frustration about the direction the producers are taking.

We’re glad you’re here and ready to share another Idol season with us!

Update: We’re seeing lots of familiar faces in the Golden Ticket winners line tonight including Jimmy Smith who wow’d the judges and earned four “yes” votes. Have you spotted any others off the 2013 Top 40 spoilers?

Update 2: Want to hear more from the Carson band featuring Taisha Bethea? Check out our profile of Carson for songs and a video.





  1. I originally didn’t care for Nicki but tonight she has been spot on. The comments from the other judges are picking on people and it isn’t being constructive. Keep on keeping it real Nicki.

  2. I think nicki and marih need to grow up I like both of you’ll but you’ll doing dumb things nicki I like you but you are a fake bitch and marih you know better than nicki you got more sens cause you are older come on both of you’ll I know you’ll got some home tranning:-)

  3. I’ve watched idol every season but am about to quit. It seems to be all about the judges now and it’s very immature..

  4. Why is Randy starting it up, Candice is good but she hasn’t been the best I’ve heard so far, but she should be in the top ten. And why don’t they send Ncki home …

  5. Does anyone know what song was playing in the background when they showed the fight between Mariah and Nicki? “Life Goes On” is all I can remember

  6. used to love this show. Now it is an embarassment. Can’t stand to watch Nicki and Mariah…this is not how this show should be. Bring back J Lo and Steven Tyler. This is just a circus with a bunch of freaks (with poor Keith Urban in the middle)

  7. I wrote s long detailed comment, but your comment app deleted it. Suffice to say Nikki and Mariah are awful. Keith s great. JLo was awesome

  8. This show is being ruined by spending more time on the horrible judges comments instead of the singing. The show is now about irritating judges rambling on and on. Disgusting

  9. I hated the first two shows. I guess it is growing on me as I enjoyed the North Carolina show. I enjoyed the talent and I still think the focus is much too much on judges. Thank God Keith got to have some input on this show. American Idol, I get it. You are trying to appeal to a wider audience. This is fine but everyone is sick and tired of the Nicki/Mariah thing. Please move on. We could care less about your famous judges!!!!! Focus on the talent… know, the purpose of the show.
