American Idol XIV 2015 San Francisco audition was an exciting one with some contestants forcing the judges to hit the stage. Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. gave away nine golden tickets on Wednesday's episode.

A 22-year-old Samuel Prince from Puerto Rico showed his acting skills by letting Jennifer do the slapping scene. Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr also ended up imitating them. They seemed to have fun but thought Samuel was better at acting than singing.

A total of nine contestants were given tickets to Hollywood on Wednesday night. San Francisco produced candidates like Katherine Skinner, who sang "Shake It Out" by Florence +The Machine, KellyAnne Rodgers ("A Song for You"), Erika David ("No One"), Andrew Bloom ("Too Close"), Chandler Leighton ("New York State of Mind"), Maddie Hudson ("Resentment"), Ryan Pinkston ("As"), Reno Anoa'i ("I Don't Want to Talk About It"), and Rayvon Owen ("Wide Awake").
