After traveling across the U.S. holding auditions for season 10 of the reality singing competition 'American Idol,' the judges and over 200 contestants head to Hollywood, see who makes the cut tonight on FOX, part of DISH Network programming. Not everyone will make a good second impression on the judges, as we can see from last night's San Francisco auditions, even Steven Tyler was starting to get testy with the competition. 'Hollywood Week' is probably one of the most intense episodes on the entire 'American Idol' season, since you're rooting for your favorite stand outs during the auditions - would you agree?There are more contestants than ever that will be coming back for phase two of the competition in Hollywood tonight. Is the increase in golden tickets due to the increase in talent since the age range was lowered to a minimum of 15 years-old? Or maybe it's because JLO and Steven Tyler aren't nearly as harsh as former judge Simon Cowell. The following crooners were some of my favorites from the various auditions: John Wayne - a country boy from where else but Austin, Texas, brother Mark and Aaron Gutierrez from Los Angeles, Casey Abrams - the Seth Rogan "twin" and James Durbin the Adam Lambert-like rocker from last night's San Fran audition.According to MTV.com, there are supposedly 40 singers who make the cut tonight in Hollywood. Looks like a lot of tears from tonight's preview as most of the singers will be packing their bags.
