I brought this up to see who would be favored to come back and audition for yet another shot in the finals. The ones where this has happened to were considerable wild cards Matthew Metzger and the popular Lisa Leuschner, plus finalist Amy Adams.
If he loses the cockiness and showcases that effortless voice, he's got a huge chance. And yes, he did say he will definately see the judges again next year.
Nicole Tieri (Scooter Girl):
She's was the one under America's radar, but was unfortunately cut right before the 32. Hopefully if she comes back she won't be overlooked.
I can see him coming back and making it to Hollywood and trying to get his work done. He was one of my personal faves and hope to see him make it again.
Martha Krable (Army Girl):
I really don't understand what threw the judges off not to advance her, but I'd like to see her get a second shot.
Others I've seen surfacing in this forum are Bao Viet (the son of the refugee parents and sang "Lately"), Jasmine Artega (the small girl with the big voice), Kira Scott (the attitude one who made Paula upset), Lauren Enswiler (the girl with the song she wrote about her gay friend), or Sarah Silva (the one Simon compared to Kelly). Who do you think?
