Bikini Girl Creates Tension on 'Idol'


You're going to Hollywood! "American Idol" season 8 kicked off its first two days at the Kodak Theatre, where the group of hopefuls was cut down from 147 to 104. "Bikini Girl" Katrina Darrell is back -- and she again has the "American Idol" judges divided!

Darrell infamously sported an itsy-bitsy bikini and high-heels for her "Idol" audition in Phoenix. The 20-year-old California native sang her version of Mariah Carey's "Vision of Love" and Simon Cowell immediately wanted to send her through to the next round. The female judges, Kara DioGuardi and Paula Abdul, quickly challenged her singing chops.

During the Hollywood round, DioGuardi said she started off liking Darrell's rendition of Faith Hill's "Breathe," but she ended up hating it. Cowell made a cat claw motion (with accompanying sounds!) and DioGuardi fired back, "Bring your pole tomorrow." Katrina was still able to advance.
