Brandy Neelly, 17, is making her third trip to "American Idol’s" Hollywood round. The Oldham County native told Idol judge Keith Urban she was star-struck to perform before him, but by the time Neelly finished her rendition of Hank Williams’ “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” it looked as if Urban was also star-struck.
“I was excited when I got my golden ticket,” Neelly said in her "American Idol" interview after advancing to the second round. “It’s such a thrilling feeling and even though it’s my third year doing it, each time I get it, I feel something different. This year, I feel like it’s fate. I feel like it’s really my year.”
