A couple of young Kentuckians survived the judges’ round on the new season of American Idol and soon they will be off to Hollywood to compete for the show’s record deal and cash prize.
Two of the early favorites among the show’s first auditions, Lancaster’s Alex Miller and Perryville’s Alyssa Wray are 30 minutes apart in neighboring Kentucky counties, and they got together to sing “My Old Kentucky Home” before they perform again for Hollywood Week on the show.
Hear the new Bluegrass collaboration from 18-year-old Alyssa from Boyle County and 17-year-old Alex from Garrard County:
