Watching American Idol in its last season they are showing more quality singers and less of the unskilled singers like they did in the past. That brings us to Tristan, a 15-year old singer who has been waiting to audition for American Idol since she was 10.
Nervous as anyone would be she sings her heart out, eventually landing in one of the coveted top spots.
“My whole family took it really well because just to be in the top six is an honor in itself,” she said. “It’s amazing to be here. It’s a great experience, especially at 15. As I have been saying, it’s not the end it’s just the beginning. It was a great place to start my career.”
As the Judges normally do, they asked Tritan a few questions after her performance to get to know the her a little more, in this case they even have a letter to read. The judges start to tear up as they read the letter from her mom who could not be there for her audition due to her deployment.
Tristan is singing for her mom who is currently over seas or so she thinks.
Watch as Tristian amazes us with her voice but thats not the only amazing thing that happens in this video.
Unfortunately, Tristan was not chosen as a finalist in this season of American Idol, but that doesn’t mean she left with nothing.
“I met so many great people and the amazing teams that worked with me — I can’t explain how grateful I am to have had this opportunity,” she said.
Adam Lambert, who shined in the 8th season of the show, made a big impact on the young singer.
“Adam was backstage with us for maybe three minutes,” she said. “Those three minutes were amazing because he’s a very kind person and very upbeat. He gave us good advice and was really nice to us.”Whizzco
