A 17-year-old student from Mount Pleasant Shubha Vedula got a golden ticket on the Wednesday night auditions episode of American Idol. I think it is great that people from our home state are accomplishing such great things especially one as great as making it to Hollywood on American idol. This girl has accomplished something millions of people have tried and failed at.
Shubha Vedula sang “Something’s Got A Hold On Me,” by Christina Aguilera.Although judges Keith Urban and Randy Jackson had a hard time pronouncing her name, they had no trouble agreeing that Shubha should continue to Hollywood. Not only did she make it but she was a definite yes like sometimes some of the judges have to think about it or be persuaded by another judge but this wasn’t the case for her.
Other judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj weren’t there to see Vedula; Carey appeared after the segment saying she was stuck in traffic, while Minaj had a prior commitment. It’s a bummer that not all the judges were there because it just makes the experience of being on there different. Also it would be one of the best feelings to have someone like Nicki Minaj or Mariah Carey tell you that you have a good voice and to say yes to your performance.
