So, American Idol returned for its eleven billionth season this week, and many millions of (older) people watched! Which is nice, and not just for Fox—because three New Yorkers were on this week and are now heading to Hollywood.
So far the Big Apple is represented in the ginormous talent show by single mom Nicole Hidalgo (Brooklyn), Creighton Fraker (Queens) and Heejun Han (Manhattan). All three seem pretty sweet, as you can see in their audition videos below, and the judges certainly seemed to like them. Jennifer Lopez went so far as to call Fraker, who sang his own song, "like Jamiroquai and Justin Timberlake had a baby."
Are you watching this season? How'd you think your fellow New Yorkers did? At least this year the show didn't say anything disparaging about the Bronx!
