Former Miss Teen USA Stormi Henley made it through to Hollywood on “American Idol” Thursday (Jan. 27), but it was a split decision.
Henley sang “Father Can You Hear Me” for the judges at the Nashville auditions, and while Steven Tyler thought her voice was strong — if a little restrained. Jennifer Lopez disagreed, saying she didn’t think Henley had enough of what it takes. So it came down to Randy Jackson, and, big surprise, the pretty girl got through.
At this point, we think we might be with Lopez. It’s not that Henley has a bad voice, but we don’t see it as quite up to par with some of the best we’ve heard in the audition round. But who knows? Maybe what Tyler heard in her can come to the forefront in the Hollywood round and beyond.
Her audition is below. What do you think of her chances? Will Stormi Henley be done by the Hollywood round, or will she stay around longer than that?
