Louisville, Ky. (WDRB) American Idol's Hollywood week will include three local girls hoping for stardom.
One is part of a very musical family. Jeffersonville's Remington Maxwell is the daughter of Mark Maxwell, an owner of Mom's Music.
She says her dad is her inspiration. "He's always sang no matter whether he is big time or not. That's what he loves to do. And that's what I love to do. and I'm always going to do it just like he does. So no matter what happens with "American Idol," I'll be a performer."
WDRB viewers may recognize another girl who made it through. Georgetown, Indiana's Emmy Bodner won the 2010 Fox in the Morning Idol competition and a brand new car from the station. She calls herself a country girl who has been singing since age four. "I think my family inspires me the most to be a performer. They've kind of always encouraged me to go for my dreams. They can tell by the look on my face whenever I sing that's what makes me the happiest. And they've just encouraged me every step of the way."
And Louisville's Brandy Neelly is headed back to Hollywood week for the third time! The 17-year-old wowed all four judges in Chicago with her version of "Your Cheatin' Heart" by Hank Williams. Brandy has a good feeling about this year. "I'm the next "American Idol" because I'm dedicated! I'm coming back no matter how many times it takes me to get on that stage show, and I think that this year is my year. Besides that, I know that I have the will and the talent."
American Idol continues next week with auditions from Charlotte, North Carolina, and Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
