Florida native Janell Wheeler sang "House of the Rising Sun" in front of the judges and impressed them with her vocal range and good looks. We don't mean to be shallow by including the latter, but let's face it: beauty helps.

Wheeler is a sales representative from Tampa. She won Orlando's Got Talent and describes her music as "country, pop, soul, glam, fun."

The 24-year old also says she loves the ocean. Will viewers love her in Hollywood? Check out her audition below and decide for yourself.
