Sending robots into the past sounds like science fiction. It’s the basis of “Terminator” and other movie plots. But now, something called a stereo-photogrammetry robot is helping a 3,000-year-old city come …

'American Idol' live-blogging recap: Best auditions saved for last

12652650541 'American Idol' live blogging recap: Best auditions saved for last

We live-blogged Wednesday night’s ‘American Idol’ episode, featuring the last auditions before the Holly.

Here’s how the evening unfolded:

6:00 – “This … is ‘American Idol.’”

6:08 – A bit of a technical glitch but I’m back for “The Road to Hollywood.”

6:09 – Amanda Shectman is the victim for a montage on how dramatic the auditions can be. she makes it through to Hollywood though.

6:11 – Time for a montage about how it’s tough for some singers to put down their instruments for the audition. Cases in point: Crystal Bowersox and Lee Dewyze are shown setting down their guitars and yet still wowing the judges with their vocals.

6:13 – We get a montage about the classic golden-ticket fakeout. you just never know when they walk out of the room, depending on how good an actor they are. Hey, even Chris Daughtry did it.

6:20 – It’s a segment about folks who have auditioned repeatedly. Last year Lacey Brown made it to the Top 50 be before being cut (while Megan Joy made it through – oops!). But she’ll get another shot at Hollywood this season.

6: 22 – for Stephanie Fisher, it’s her seventh time auditioning. and just like all the rest, this one’s a flop. she gets a hug from her idol Victoria Beckham though.

6:25 – Ryan tells us that it was good crop of 16-year-olds this time around. Featured were three golden-ticket winners: Rachel Hubbard, Thaddeus Johnson and Genesis Moore.

6:32 – Time to pay tribute to the athletes, Ryan says. first up Adrian Chandichtl. He’s huge – 6-8. and his sport is swimming, not basketball. But when he sings, he sounds like a 10-year-old choir boy. Sorry dude. But athlese get a better story in Michael Lynche, a personal trainer from Astoria, NY. He’s got a smooth voice and sails through to Hollywood.

6:37 – Didi Benami is our requisite sob story of the night. She’s performing in memory of her friend who dide four years earlier. and sing she did! I’m going to go out on a limb and say she’s best female audition I’ve seen all season. Let’s see how she does in Hollywood.

6:44 – Orlando’s Aaron Kelly is another youngster — he’s 16. He’s like David Archuleta but from a broken family! and just like Archuleta two seasons ago, Aaron is good, hella-good (though he sang a Miley Cyrus song). Watch out for this kid in Hollywood.

6:48 – for some reason that wasted time on two rejects: Kimberly Bishop and Shaddali Harris. next!

6:53 – Only 7 more minutes of Idol before Hollywood round!

6:54 – The capper is the sterling audition from Hope Johnson of Arlington, Texas. she has a great look as well as a Texas-sultry voice. and she’s off to Hollyweird (as Randy calls it). She’s the vocal equivalent of a humid Dallas afternoon before the thunderstorm arrives.

6:58 – We get a sneak peek at Hollywood round that begins next week. did you catch a glimpse of any of your favorites. Because of careful editing, it was hard to tell who was getting ripped and who was getting praised.

So that’s it. Ryan says 181 made it through to Hollywood. of the ones shown tonight, who were your favs?

Here’s my ranking:

1. Didi Benami2. Aaron Kelly3. Crystal Bowersox
