Montco teen snags coveted golden ticket on American Idol

Katy Perry American Idol

A Johnson City teen was featured on American Idol Sunday night after being invited to audition in front of the celebrity panel of judges. There are seven local stars on the rise moving on to this next round of the competition, including a few that viewers at home did not get a chance to meet during the audition round. As she explained to the three judges - Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie - back then, "I was just a a chubby little Latino boy".

The young songstress then showed her true personality with a handsome rendition of a church song that blew the judges away and earned her a golden ticket to Hollywood. "It's reachable if you keep your dreams close to your heart".

Watching her perform, Perry, who married comedian-actor Russell Brand in Rajasthan, India, in 2010, commented: "I full-body felt what you were singing, I am a believer in you".
