On tonight's (Jan. 24) audition episode of 'American Idol,' Season 12 headed to judge Randy Jackon's hometown of Baton Rouge, La. The "dawg" looked extra beautiful on camera, with Mariah Carey doing his makeup. On this ep, we met an injured beauty queen with a belter's lungs and a singing doctor with a butter smooth voice. There was more good than bad, including an awkward teen who uses music to communicate and bridge the gap between himself and the outside world.
Here's the PopCrush recap of the Baton Rouge auditions on Season 12.
