First off, sorry for not posting any for the last few days. I was out of town, and it was really hard to have time to do much of anything. I even fell behind on Facebook! *gasp!*
I’m glad I waited to preview Janelle Arthur until after her audition, because they talked about how she already feels like a star. Well, this is her third season of Idol, so this seems like a new feeling. lol. I thought her audition was great, honestly.
Even though she’s never made it to a voting round, she toured with a bunch of Idols last year, including Creighton Fraker, Kendra Chantelle (now Kendra Campbell), Nick Boddington, Jen Hirsch, Jovany Baretto, Haley Johnson, Ashthon Jones, Brett Lowenstern, Aaron Marcellus, John Wayne Schultz, Lauren Turner (robbed!),Ta-Tynisa Wilson, and Rachel Zevita (and two others I’ve never heard of before).
As we also know, she started her career working for Dollywood in Nashville, playing a young Dolly Parton. I think she’s a real contender, in a Carrie Underwood way. What do you guys think?
