When Lacey Brown auditioned for American Idol last year, she sat next to eventual finalist Megan Joy in the cut room and was told by Randy Jackson that it was the end of the road.
Ha! Shows what Randy knows.
Brown is back on the show, receiving a golden ticket following her latest try out in Orlando. This Texas native wowed the judges with a rendition of "Over the Rainbow" and stands as a rumored season nine semifinalist.
Does Brown deserve to move along in Hollywood? Idol kicks off auditions from there next week, and you can check out Lacey's performance below in order to gauge her chanes on the competition.
