Opera Singers, Goth Cowboys and Ryan Seacrest: Our Favorite Videos from the American Idol Houston Auditions

Categories: Film and TV, Music

Check out our slideshow of all the American Idol Season 11 hopefuls.

Art Attack was at Reliant Stadium well before 5 a.m. to talk with the crowds that had amassed there to try out for one shot at fame as a contestant on American Idol. We have to admit, we got chills when we heard Ryan Seacrest say, "This is Houston, and this...is American Idol."

Here are some of our favorite hopefuls from this morning. Videography by Courtney Riedmann.

Opera singer and Arizona State student Kenzy Stuart, 19.

Megan Schlafer, 23, of Sugar Land gave us something to talk about.

Sierra Townsend, 15, came all the way from Dallas to audition.

We were stoked to hear the country warblings of Lufkin's Goth cowboy Bryan Thorson.
