Most Memorable 'American Idol' Auditions

Josiah Leming

Josiah Leming is remembered not for auditioning in a bikini or rapping about sagging pants, but for being genuinely talented. And for crying. After pouring his heart out in a pre-taped sob story during Season 7 auditions, Leming leveled the judges with a rendition of Mika’s “Grace Kelly.” He was booted from the show prior to the live semifinals for refusing to sing a recognizable version of “Stand By Me,” but in the end he was validated with a record deal with Warner Bros., who released an underrated EP and full-length album. -Jeff Royer
