There is a first time for everything!
I certainly can’t remember a time when a young woman with blue hair auditioned for AMERICAN IDOL — with an accordion!
“I am the next AMERICAN IDOL because I think that originality needs to be brought back into the mainstream.” 23 year-old Joey Cook revealed before presenting her version of KINGS OF SPAIN (by Tallest Man On Earth) in Kansas City.
“Accordions need to be (for) more than just polka music!”

So what did the judges think?
JLO: “You are so unique and you look like a little doll. I really enjoyed that.”
KEITH URBAN: “That’s my favorite voice of the whole day.”
HARRY CONICK JR.: I think you are absolutely terrific. I love you. I think you are wonderful. I would just caution you to take a step outside yourself and realize how close to the edge of novelty you are.”
And on she went to Hollywood…
AMERICAN IDOL airs Wednesday and Thursday on Fox.
