Remember Ashley Ferl, the Crying Girl who memorably got tons of air time while sobbing during a round of "Idol" performances in Season 6?
Well, she's 16 now, and old enough to audition for AI. Think she passed up an opportunity for another 15 minutes of fame? No way.
MJ's Big Blog reports via the LA Times that Crying Girl auditioned for the ninth season of AI Tuesday. No word yet on whether she made the cut.
Call me cynical, but it's hard not to believe producers orchestrated this a bit.
