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.
