There's a Haley, a Hollie and a Hallie. There's also the daughter of a World Series pitcher and a young woman who auditioned five years ago and has now made a triumphant return.

Indeed, it's a mixed, talented bag of female American Idol semifinalists. They'll perform live for the first time on Wednesday night, so now is the time to place your early bets.

Sort through the following Fox promotional pics and then select a favorite and let's see if one of these females can break the string of male Idol champions...

Baylie Brown enjoyed a triumphant return to American Idol last night.

Five years after her initial appearance on the show - during which she advanced to Hollywood, was paired with uncooperative teammates ere and then forgot the lyrics on stage - this 21-year old Texan showed off a new hair color and a great voice yesterday as one of the 54 Golden Ticket recipients (along with Kristine Osorio and Ramiro Garcia) to make it out of The Lone Star State.

Watch her first try out below, lament how much we miss Simon Cowell by watching him once again in action, and then compare it to her version of "Bed of Roses" from this week's audition.
