'American Idol' standouts

Why the ''roughneck'' Texan, Bikini Girl, and Scott MacIntyre are three notables from the reality show's season premiere

Michael Sarver
A ”roughneck” Texan who works on an oil rig but isn’t afraid to get all schmaltzy and sing some Boyz II Men? That’s a yes from us, too.

Bikini Girl
Never has it been more clear why we needed another female judge — especially one who can oust wannabes like Katrina Darrell. Too bad Simon breaks the ties.

Scott MacIntyre
He’s blind but plays the piano, sings a pretty version of ”And So It Goes,” and gamely humors Ryan when he awkwardly tries to high-five him. Yup, we’re sold.
