Sob story! Here's cute, rebellious Rose Flack, 17, from Idaho. Her dad died when she was 13. Two years later, her mom died. Now, she's living with her best friend's family.
Oh man. Why do you have to be like this, producers?
Never miss a local story.
Rose approaches the judges and gets on Simon's good side right away. He thinks she looks great. He's right. She's kind of a blond-haired, punk rock version of Keira Knightley.
She sings "I Feel the Earth Move" and it's good but her vocals could use some work. At times it seems like she's trying too hard to be memorable.
The judges have concerns about the vocals, but like her personality. Predictably, she's going to Hollywood.
And we're done! Salt Lake City made for 13 tickets to Hollywood, Seacrest says.
Tomorrow, it's auditions in New York and San Juan...and then, THE MOST DRAMATIC HOLLYWOOD WEEK EVER.
