"American Idol" Los Angeles was a big flop as they showed just four performances that earned a golden ticket, with only brothers Martin and Aaron Erin Gutierrez and belly-dancer Heidi Khzam making any sort of lasting impression.
Here's how I ranked everyone; put your thoughts in the comments, below:
1) Brothers Martin and Aaron Gutierrez charmed the pants off everybody with their melodic "Lean on Me." A lot of flair makes for an "unreal" performance as Steven Tyler said.
2) Belly dancing Heidi Khzam and beat-boxing Tyler were oddly bewitching together; looking forward to seeing more of her.
3) MySpace auditioner Karen Rodriguez is smooth on "You Give Good Love." She's another one who I didn't feel strongly about but who seems likeable.
4) Tim Halperin, crushing on Jennifer Lopez, had a good voice but struck me as annoying and odd.
