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?
