Two Colorado Girls Make It to American Idol's Top 24

Colorado has two girls in the top 24 of American Idol this season. I'll be cheering for Lillian Scott from downtown Denver and Haeley Vaughn from Fort Collins (and others as I start seeing real performances).

Haeley just turned 16 in 2009 and might be the youngest of this year's contestants. She was a cheerleader her freshman and sophomore years, but decided she'd give that up so she could try out for Idol. Looks like that was a good move.

Lillian sang the National Anthem at Mile High Stadium when she was only five years old.

Check out the golden ticket interviews at the American Idol site for Lilly Scott and Haeley Vaughn.

Are you an American Idol fan (like me)? If so, have you already picked your favorites from the auditions?

I am an American/Canadian Idol fan. I flipped back & forth from Idol to Olympics last night so I didn't catch it all. I haven't got a favourite yet - in fact I don't know names yet. There were 3 or 4 I thought were standouts, but I don't know their names yet :)

I am a big idol fan, but haven't been able to watch the first parts because of everything going on with hubby's mom. But now I plan to settle in and watch the top 24 get whittled down to one.

I too am an American Idol fan. I will keep a special eye out for your two Colorado gals.

I've watched the show, but just heard about the 16-yr-old from Colorado. I hope she does well.
