6 Things You Didn’t Know About My American Idol Journey!

 

Hey guys! I thought it would be cool to share some of my AI highlights, PLUS photos from each audition round! Check it out below…

1. My friends & family came to support me at the auditions. My cousins even made me my very first poster 🙂 hehee!

Idol 2

2. I was given a camcorder to record my journey. Since I auditioned in Atlanta, it was very important for me to get some footage of my family in Milwaukee. I still would’ve been representing my hometown – and I wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂

3. We recorded a video chat with my family & I – smart idea Ed! Brought us all together to catch up and it was so fun to see everyone on one couch. 🙂 It’s been a minute since I’ve been back home to visit.

4. I got to do interviews, tell my story, and convince the producers that I’m the FULL PACKAGE baby! Lol and just why I’m “marketable” 😉 I even had to dance a few times too!

5. I got to see JLO in person!!!!!!!!!!!! Ah!

6. I thought the judges were pretty honest! I appreciated their constructive criticism.
