Brittany Zika, aka 'Tripster the hipster,' debuts on 'American Idol'

Brittany Zika is up first as "American Idol" auditions hit Portland. Sporting a hat and glasses she claims people call her 'Tripster the hipster.'

The nanny from Portland seems annoying to me, but she can sing. She does Brandi Carlile's "The Story," and has a nice tone. She goes totally crazy afterward with her family. "Great voice" says Jennifer Lopez, but I totally think she's too much.

Sick Ben Purdom comes next. The 18 year old from Philly says he "sells cable TV on the street." He seems pretty clueless. He says he'll be singing Lady Gaga's "Born This Way." It's just really bad -- he has a tin ear.

Afterward, he and his mom claim he was so bad because he had a cold.
