Idol Headlines for 05/04/12 – The Evening Edition

Can Hollie Or Jessica Win ‘American Idol?’ – First the good news: There have been three winners on “American Idol” who got intimate with the bottom three during their runs. That means that Hollie Cavanagh, Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet still have a shot at taking the top prize if they can survive the next two weeks. Now the bad news: no singer has ever won “Idol” after being saved (Sanchez) or making more than one trip to the bottom (Cavanagh). And while that’s a ray of sunshine for Ledet, who has only hit the stools of shame once, the odds are not in his favor considering that of the 10 previous winners, only three have gone on to victory after facing elimination. – Read more at MTV

Ayla Brown Dishes on Her Self-Titled Album and Why Josh Turner Is Afraid of Her – Years before moving to Nashville, singer-songwriter Ayla Brown was a star on the Boston College women’s basketball team. They called her “Downtown” Ayla Brown for her impeccable ability to shoot the three-pointer. Now, she’s only able to play pick-up games between songwriting sessions and performances, and she’s regularly underestimated.
“None of the guys wanna cover you right? And then you start shooting threes, open 3?s, and everyone on the other team starts saying ‘Who has the girl? I though you had her,’” Brown quips. The 23-year-old, who’s just released a self-funded album full of emotional love songs and feisty country rockers, seems very comfortable in proving her worth. It’s a resilience that she’ll need to rise from the bottom of Music City’s deep pool of talent. – Read more at Taste of Country
