Bubbly 'American Idol' Contestant Gushes, Giggles And Nails It

Finn's original audition was not shown on TV, but she's expected to appear in the next week's "Hollywood Week" episodes on "American Idol".

Twenty-three-year-old Maddie Todd performed in front of the three celebrity judges - Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan - in New Orleans and walked away with a golden ticket to Hollywood. The day before her American Idol audition airs, she announced that her "Officially Missing You Spanglish" cover hit the 15,000 views mark.

The judges found their jaws on the floor at their first glimpse of Ada, and Katy Perry was damn near speechless before she even heard a single note.

It will be Mostly Cloudy today, Rain in Many Places
Given the clouds and less cold southeasterly breeze, expect a less cold night with lows likely remaining in the low to mid 30s. Sunny, dry, and warmer weather will arrive on Friday before cooler weather returns again for the weekend.

Runnels works as a hostess at the Slidell restaurant Palmettos on the Bayou. "She doesn't care what anyone thinks and I admire her for that", fellow contestant Zach D'Onofrio said.

Smith sang "And I'm Telling You" which she said was a big song to sing with nerves, but it went pretty well. This is obviously a moment of relief for Lucia, who says she thought Perry was going to eat her alive.

"I think you've got a bigger motor than you're showing us, though", Perry said. "They want to see me make it. Lawton is an awesome community, and I'm very thankful for them".
