Taylor Vaifanua: American Idol Audition

by at . Comments

Salt Lake City, Utah has produced a pair of singing sensations: David Archuleta and the High School Musical franchise.

Might Taylor Vaifanua be next in line?

The 16-year old singer conjured up memories of Jordin Sparks for any American Idol fan last night, as she wowed judges with a rendition of "Joyful, Joyful."

Watch the impressive audition below:

In all, seven contestants from this round of auditions received a ticket to Hollywood. Others that stood out were:


I TOTALLY AGREE WITH KELSEY AND KELSEY!! Im 15 too and i am auditioning in St Louis. I hstoenly couldnt care less about fame or fortune either! I know i want the rest of my life to be FULL of music and i want to make a positive, powerful impact on peoples lives. I want to record songs about self empowerment and confidence. I want my message to be sent ACROSS AMERICA! My cousin died of suicide, and maybe if there were a few more artists singing about self importance and esteem, then maybe the suicides per year number would decrease. DRAMATICALLY!! I know i am only one voice, but please listen.
