      Simon: I'm laughing because I had a cat once ...
      Allison: I'm nervous and shaking.
      Simon: ... who's tail got in a door ...
      Randy: Aw, stop it Cowell.
      Simon: ... and I swear to God it reminds me of that.
      Randy: (to Simon) Stop it! Stop it!

    • (commenting on Jason Horn a contestant who works and a funeral home)

      Randy: Wow. I guess you can learn from the, uh, dearly departed, dude. I mean that was really good.

    • (commenting on Paula Goodspeed)

      Simon: I don't think any artist on earth could sing with that much metal your mouth anyway. You have so much metal in your mouth.

    • (talking to Julian Riano)

      Simon: There are so many reasons why you are wrong for this competition. Where do I start?

    • Paula: I hope Simon is in a good mood today. Because he hasn't been. Yet.

    • (Rene Norman's performance of Ain't No Sunshine)

      Randy Jackson: Welcome to Hollywood!
      Rene Norman: You're gonna change!
      Randy Jackson: Change me, change me!

    • Contestant: Jigglypuff, Jigglypuff...
      Randy Jackson: What's wrong with Austin?

  • NOTES (3)

    • Two contestants were judge lookalikes. One looked like Randy and another like Paula. The contestant Paula Goodspeed, was a huge fan of Paula Abdul, changing her name and style and she became even more famous after she committed suicide outside of Paula Abdul's house in 2008. Reportedly Paula Abdul had asked to not let her audition because she knew her (which seemed to be true based on how she acted when Paula G. was performing). The show's producers denied any knowledge of Paula's fears.

    • 12 people made it to the Hollywood Round from Austin, TX.
