I got curious so did some web surfing today. I found this article about some of the contestants on the show.
The auditioner with the red Hawaiian shirt who I suspected had some kind of diagnosis is reported to have Autism and to have competed in a past Special Olympics. His name is Jonathan Jayne. Here is his My Space account.
Kenneth Briggs is the name of the auditioner who Simon Cowell said looked like a monkey, and a bush baby. Here is a link to a blog article that shows a photo of Briggs alongside a photo of a bush baby.
Briggs and Jayne have appeared on a talk show, read more about that here.
Here is a long article which I didn't have time to read, but that describes the different contestants and has photos of them.
The next American Idol audition show is tomorrow night, will you be watching?
