Hollie Cavanagh was born in England, but lives in Texas. Hence her unusual accent. This American Idol semifinalist also looks her age, something that can't always be said for 18-year olds on the show.

Jennifer Lopez told Hollie she thinks she can win the whole thing and we agree. We'd make her the very early favorite, along with Phillip Phillips on the men's side. Do you agree? Watch and listen now:
