Thursday night, American Idol auditions rolled into Texas, the state that gave us our first Idol champ, Kelly Clarkson! Idol has always had good luck in the Lone Star State, so producers figured they could wrangle up some more talent there this year. And, last night, they snagged a rifle-packin', 4-wheeler-ridin' gal who reminded me very much of Miranda Lambert. And they found Ramiro Garcia, a medical miracle who defies every odd imaginable to be able to lift his voice up in song. As usual, our Idol expert, Steve Thompson, shared his thoughts about the episode and the contenders.
