Helllllo Louisville! Things kick off with Tiffany Shedd, who comes to the auditions with a glowing endorsement from her parents.
She approaches the judges sporting a short dress, purple eyeshadow and some seriously bleached hair.
Never miss a local story.
She says if she doesn't make AI, she's going to college.
It takes mere seconds to realize she's headed to higher education. She warbles through a version of "Hero," gets a four-no and leaves the audition in denial. Mom and Dad continue to sing her praises, though.
OK, here's someone worth a little more attention: It's Joanna Pacitti. Seacrest gives his usual blurb, but here's what you didn't hear on TV.
At 11, she was cast for a Broadway performance of "Annie," but later got sick with bronchitis. She returned to work to learn she'd been fired and the firing made national news. Later, she pursued a major music career and later had a song covered by Britney Spears.
Get the full story here.
She pulls out a rendition of "We Belong to the Night," which is predictably good, but maybe a little over-the-top.
Naturally, she still gets a four-way yes.
