Wednesday night's episode of American Idol had the judges traveling to San Antonio, TX and Long Beach, CA to try and discover the next Kelly Clarkson or Phillip Phillips. Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey managed to play nice for the entire episode (no joke, there was nary an eye roll between the two divas), which left ample time for some truly impressive auditions. From a war veteran, to guy who was left with a lisp after a botched surgery, to a girl whose audition literally set off the fire alarm, here's a roundup of the most memorable auditions of the night.
