American Idol in Charlotte: Best of the Rest

January 24, 2013

Because we can't hand Seretha Guinn the American Idol Season 12 title just yet, let's take a look at what other contestants stood out in Charlotte last night, shall we?

There was Brian Rittenberry, whose wife recently defeated Stage 4 cancer and whose "Let It Be" earned him a ticket to Hollywood.

There was also the VERY talkative and social Ashley Smith, whose love of sandwiches was only eclipsed by the judges' love of her take on "Cowboy Casanova."

And what about Ja?Bria Barber, only 16 years old, belting out Bonnie Raitt's version of "Pride and Joy?"

Who else stood out?

Nicki Minaj told Candice Glover that she's "obsessed" with her and wants to "skin" her and "wear" her; while Janelle Arthur tried out last year, but looks to be a serious competitor on Season 12.

Watch their auditions now:
