Bikini Girl Adds to American Idol Success

Shocker: bikini babe draws attention. If you happened to catch 'American Idol' last night you know exactly what we're talking about.

Katrina Darrell walked into her audition sporting a tiny bikini and a big voice. Darrell sang Mariah Carey's "Treated Me Kind," which was no easy task. And although she didn't nail it like Mariah, she did a pretty damn good job.

She was an eye opener for Simon, who quickly gave her a "YES," but new judge Kara DioGuardi was hating on the hot young version of herself. She tried to demonstrate how it should have been sung, but did a worse job than Darrell.

Darrell put her in her place proclaiming, "your demonstration wasn't any better," which ultimately got her a pass to Hollywood.

The funniest part had to be when she tried to make out with Ryan Seacrest afterward. He didn't seem too into the hot young brunette wearing close to nothing, which we found a little odd, but you can make what you want of it.

The season eight premiere drew 30.1 million total viewers last night from 8 to 10 p.m., according to Nielsen overnights, making it the most-watched non-sports show of the season.
