Ashley Robles took on arguably the most difficult challenge one can give oneself on last night's American Idol audition show:
She covered the Dolly Parton/Whitney Houston classic "I Will Always Love You."
But Robles rose to the occasion, belting out an impression version that granted the single mother access to Hollywood from all three judges, with Randy Jackson wondering where the heck Ashley has been all the time. Are we looking at a new frontrunner?
NOTE: Due to its late airing on the East Coast, this San Diego-based episode will be shown again tomorrow night on Fox, prior to President Obama's State of the Union Address. Tune in to watch such contenders as Aubree Dieckmeyer and Jane Carrey.
