15 year-old Emily Brooke performed Carrie Underwood’s “Blown Away” during her audition on American Idol on January 7th. Let’s just say, it blew away the judges, along with everyone watching from their own home. Harry Connick Jr. mentioned that he liked that Emily actually looked like a 15 year-old, where a lot of teens around that age try and tend to look twenty or so. The other judges agreed, saying that it’s very refreshing.
Emily decided to give it a try when she saw that they were holding auditions in Nashville, so she performed at dozens of different places to raise the money for the trip.
I worked super-duper hard and I was able to make enough from gigging and doing a bunch of shows. Being able to afford it to get here was just so awesome.
Emily’s parents stated:
I don’t know many 15 year-old kids that will give up all their weekends and do whatever it takes to pursue whatever it is they want to do.
This girl will definitely go far with that voice! Watch the video below and be impressed.
