Tonight’s episode: Tonight the show is coming from the aircraft carrier the USS Midway in San Diego, CA. They find out that jets will be flying over them – so a little noisy.
The first contestant of the day comes in wearing a bikini and stilettos. She is having trouble keeping her butt cheeks in the bottom. I guess she thinks the outfit will get her the golden ticket. Randy asks her what she is wearing. Steven tells her it is against the law to be that cute as he leers. Her name Jennifer Diley is a waitress from Ohio and she cannot sing. She sings With You by Jessica Simpson and then she tries Hero by Mariah Carey. Steven tells her – that her voice lacks the fire that her outfit has. Needless to say it failed and she did not get the golden ticket.
Ashley Robles,26 is a single Mom from San Diego, CA. She is singing I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston. Randy said it was very nice and that is how you audition. He tells her she has a great voice. Steve tells her she is going to be big. They are sending her to Hollywood and gets a golden ticket. She was fantastic
