Anne Marie Boskovich: First American Idol Contender

by at . Comments

No offense, Leneshe Young, Joanna Pacitti and other season eight contestants we've seen so far.

But Anne Marie Boskovich looks to be the first American Idol hopeful we can confidently say has a shot to win it all this year.

The beauty auditioned in Jacksonville last night and immediately impressed judges with a quick rendition of a Kara DioGuardi song.

Simon Cowell and company were impressed, asking something of the contender we had never seen before: leave, and return later with a more professional appearance. Boskovich followed this request, came back at the end of the hour with make-up on and truly blew away viewers.

Watch her audition now:

Some background on Anne Marie Boskovich:

  • At age 13, she appeared on the soundtrack for Disney's direct-to-video cartoon, The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea. She sang "Part of Your World" over the closing credits;
  • She sang "God Bless America" at the 2003 NBA All-Star Game.
  • She lives in Nashville and works as a waitress/nanny.

Also receiving golden tickets to Hollywood last night were T.K. Hash and Jasmine Murray.


Glad to say that I have hookups with Ann Marie. She's bestfriends with my dad's bestfriend.


Anne Marie is my parents' neighbor and I have known her family for a very long time. I remember hearing her sing up the street and her gorgeous voice would drift down the street to my house. It was like angels were singing. Anne Marie comes from a great family and is so talented. Go AMB!


Wow! She's really great! Right now Im already rooting for her... I hope she become the next American Idol.
Also I wanna ask you what is the first song that she sings at the audtitioned? Thanks! I was mesmerized when she sings it. Thanks a lot. =)


I'm a friend of hers too...ya the editing was bad. but the whole story was funny, and true. anyways she did a KICK ass job. aah shes soooo good!!! KILLED the competition!!!


I'm a friend of ann marie, and the funniest part of her whole audition is the fact of how it was edited... she really did meet a make up artist (one of the auditioner's girlfriends) but that looks like the most fake part... She's such a genuine girl, absolutely stunning, and I can't wait for them to start showing her as the star she is! YAY ANN MARIE!!


LOVED Ann Marie!!! WOW, what a talent. If anyone would like to join up as a fan visit: AND/OR


I think she is going to win American Idol.


how's her story even heartwarming to begin with?!


Of course Idol sets up things! It's a TV show! Anyways, Anne is AMAZING!


I thought she was great, but it felt strange to me that she was able to find a makeup artist like that. I'm becoming suspicious of American Idol's editing. It seems too convenient that many of the last contestants of the day seem to have heartwarming stories.

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
