American Idol Auditions: Hollywood delivers 50 finalists

Tonight the judges whittle 72 contestants down to 50 in the finals of the Hollywood Round.

We're treated to some outstanding performances by Jamar Rogers, Anoop Desai, Danny Gokey, and blind guy Scott McIntyre. I wasn't so impressed with judges' fave Jorge Nunez.

Standouts among the ladies were Kristen McNamara, Casey Carlson, and Joanna Pacitti. I LOVED Mishavonna Henson. Anne Marie Boskovich may be the great hope of the judges.

I'm praying they send drama queens Tatiana del Toro and Nathaniel Marshall home right now.

I've already been disappointed. The highly annoying Tatiana and Nathaniel Marshall make it through. I'm convinced the judges are looking for a Latino singer to win this year's competition. That can be the only reason Tat and Jorge are in the top 50. Few other surprises {weird, but highly entertaining, Nick Mitchell makes it through}. Oh yeah, Jason Castro's little brother didn't make the top 50.

Tomorrow night two full hours of Idol fun. Set the tivo.
