Most Awkward Moment on Idol: High Five or Bikini B*tch?

Last night American Idol returned with plenty of awkward moments. First up was Katrina Darrell, aka the girl with no clothes who wanted to make out with Ryan. As if Simon's gawking weren't enough, Paula and new judge Kara DioGuardi got into a singoff with her. Then there was the final audition with Scott MacIntyre. The blind contestant had a heartfelt audition, which resulted in a well-deserved ticket to Hollywood. It was awesome until Ryan tried to give him a high five and was obviously left hanging. In case you missed these highlights, check out the videos below and tell us — which moment was more awkward?

OK, I don't see how the bikini girl was awkward. Eye-roll worthy, yes, but not awkward. And not nearly as bad as poor Ryan trying to give the blind man a high five.

The high-five was definitely more awkward, but I thought it was lame that Kara kept trying to challenge the Bikini Girl to a sing-off. Kara was WAY better than her but she should have shown more maturity. I didn't like the Bikini Girl at all, she was just a mediocre singer who wouldn't have gotten through if she wore regular clothes to the audition.

That Bikini Girl was something else. Did she go to multiple auditions wearing the same bikini? She has a good voice, but she didn't nail that song - (a) she went flat at a lot of points and (b) she just stood there awkwardly and made us all feel awkward watching her too. But her gimmick worked ... it definitely helped to hide her lack of showmanship. I'm guessing that she can't wear a bikini throughout the contest though, so unless she can pull it together after this, her days are numbered.

Bikini girl was just desperate and pathetic. I am sure her parents and future children will be proud.

The bikini girl was ridiculous, obnoxious and couldn't sing.

As much as I hated that bikini girl, that high five was definitely the most awkward.

Ryan's an idiot. This just proves it. He'll probably come out and say "just wondering if that was a gimmick, too." Blech... But, when the new judge started singing, it was pretty obvious that she was in fact playing the jealous older lady.

The bikini girl got on my nerves! She seemed like a cheap piece of you know what just walking in there wearing that bikini and then she kissed Ryan. Poor Ryan trying to high five the blind guy at least he meant well.

High five wasn't that awkward, considering that I'm sure you kinda become mindless after being with a bunch of people who "think" they sound great. Bikini... uhh girl was asking for it IMO. I was thinking that she wasn't too bad though, I might have actually taken her seriously if she came in with clothes.

LMAO, Ryan is such an ass! How do you give a blind person a high five. I loved how he lost his concentration when that slut kissed him.

Ani I totally saw that too. It's because there are multiple auditions before they actually get to Paula, Randy, Simon, and Kara, to weed out a lot of the contestants and are a few weeks apart I think. Someone I know was on the show (actually in a few clips last night, it was pretty funny) and explained it. I thought bikini girl was really obnoxious and was surprised her voice was pretty decent. I don't think she'd make it that far because a lot of people will probably be annoyed with her personality when it comes time for the public to vote, but then again maybe I'm wrong. I also thought it was hilarious that they were playing "I Kissed a Girl" when she went to kiss Ryan. That's totally going to be on the Soup this week.

Did anyone else notice that at the beginning of the bikini girl clip the girl they showed had blonde hair and then all of sudden she was a brunette?

o god that high five was so cringy, ryan was mistakenly dim though, if he did it on purpose that would be so wrong but bless him, u could tell he realised immediately uh embarrassing! But with the girl in the bikini, those girl judges were so over the top, and bitchy! The girl judge said it wasn't coz she was pretty but how nasty was she calling her a bikini bitch....she was up her own arse and too into her looks which cant be fun but that was harsh to be so over the top mean to her.....and to be honest there wasn't a load of difference in how they sounded singing lol. plus so not keen on paula she's so werid and such a stirer....

I think the high five was just an innocent mistake. How many people, especially those who do that on a regular basis, would really stop and think about doing something like that when they were caught up in a rapport with someone they didn't know? The Bikini Girl really was annoying.

Bikini girl's voice was just ok to me. Who knew Kara could sing? I guess I have to do my homework on her. I cringed at the high five incident. Yipes.

I admire that girl's cojones for showing up in a bikini... but I must admit, I was surprised by her voice. While it wasn't amazing, it was still good. I don't think Kara needed to make that demonstration... It just made her look jealous and petty. Paula was right (never thought I'd ever write that one down), she didn't need to prove that she was better

Bikini girl wasn't awful, but she wasn't fantastic either. She seemed nervous and was over compensating by showing skin, eh, let her at least she had the body for it. And the high five was another reason Seacrest is a lame excuse for a "celebrity", ew.

I was surprised that Bikini Girl could sing. Be a bitch, be in a bikini, get your tan...just as long as you have the pipes to back it up. Respect!

I think the most awkward moment was when bikini girl went up and kissed Ryan, she was kind of pathetic but definitely entertaining; although, I think Kara sang much better than she did. At first I was surprised Simon could be so easily swayed by a bikini, but I think he picked her more for the entertainment value she might bring to the show. I personally will enjoy watching her get axed.

yeah, I thought the most horrible moment of that clip was when she called her a bitch. It's not the best way to approach an argument with an attention seeking twit in a bikini, but then I don't know anything about that judge... maybe she's as dumb as a brick in a bucket and has nothing else to come back with? In any case, it's really about time that people stopped giving these attention seeking twits in no clothes the time of day, let alone giving them prime time tv coverage and a ticket to Hollywood. :oy: It's perpetuating a horrible descent into bimbodom for an entire generation of females. Boo to that!

Yo wat the hell is up with the new girl calling the girl a bitch. I found bikini girl very annoying but to call her the b word was very immature. And then Kara was battling the girl and Paula was acting crazy. Very weird. Ryan giving the guy a high five was absolutely strange, but I'm sure he didnt do it on purpose.
