Country Singers Ben Briley and Lauren Ogburn Impress ‘American Idol’ Judges at Atlanta Audition [RECAP]

Fox

Auditions continued on ‘American Idol’ as the judges headed to Atlanta, Georgia. ‘Gumbo’ boy Ben Briley and country girl Lauren Ogburn impressed, receiving their golden tickets.

Ben Briley

Ben Briley performed ‘Arms of A Woman’ and had Keith Urban saying ‘if you sang acapella on the radio, I’d pull to the side, I might crash my car.’  Briley’s Cajun style performance reminded Harry Connick Jr. of home and gumbo. Let’s hope that’s a nickname that won’t stick.

Lauren Ogburn

Lauren Ogburn got Keith and JLo’s stamp of approval for her performance of Reba McEntire‘s ‘Fancy’ but wanted Harry’s thoughts since she’s heard he’s kinda…’Kinda what?‘ Harry asked. Trying to soften his Harsh Harry image, he advised Lauren to cut back on her ‘Americana’ look but still gave her a yes to Hollywood.

Majesty York

Majesty York hooked the judges from her first soft note making it one of the easiest yeses of the day in Georgia. Keep your eye on Majesty. She’s a Top 30 contender.

Bria Anai Johnson

It’s hard to believe Bria is only 15 year old. She’s another one to keep an eye on.  The judges were amazed by her sparkle lipstick as much as her beautiful voice, receiving three big yeses to Hollywood.

Jessica Meuse

Jessica Meuse impressed with her unique style and original song ‘Blue Eyed Lie.’ Meuse is from Slapout Alabama, one of the greatest town names ever!  She explained the name came from a store owner who use to say he was ‘slapout’ when he ran out of anything; a phrase Keith Urban is going to start using.  I doubt Idol will be slapout of Jessica anytime soon.

Jordan Brisbane

Jordan is the cutest 15 year old ever and has a voice to match his good looks.  Harry even felt he should be in movies.  After giving Jordan advice on cutting back on his musical runs, all three judges gave him a golden ticket to Hollywood.

Chris Medina

Chris Medina who works for Army National Guard, showed up to his audition with his dog.  Harry was so impressed with the pet, he held the dog during Chris’ audition. The question now is, can Chris take his dog with him to Hollywood.
