'American Idol' audition phase wraps up tonight

It's bad news for viewers who thrive on delusional Mariah Carey wannabes, but good news for anyone waiting for the real competition to start:

Tonight is the last audition episode of this season of "American Idol."

The one-hour show features hopefuls in New York City and San Juan, Puerto Rico. It begins at 8 p.m. on Fox.

As usual, reporter Sonya Sorich will blog the entire show "live" on the Ledger's official "Idol" blog. Visit the blog now to get a recap of Wednesday's Salt Lake City auditions, which included highlights like a promising Amy Winehouse lookalike.

And, on a less promising note, a sidekick named Greg the Rabbit.
