Baylie Brown is back on “American Idol.” This 21-year-old cutie auditioned in Season 6, when she was just a baby at 16 and was a casualty of the awful (read: awesome) Group Day during the Hollywood Rounds.

We actually remember Baylie, if only because she was paired with that horrid Antonella Barba, who had absolutely no business being in the Top 24 and was then revealed to have some skanky toilet pictures, or something. Anyway. We thought it was a shame when Baylie was sent home last time.

But Baylie is back and she busts out Bon Jovi’s “Bed of Roses” and it’s just gorgeous. J.Lo is ready to send her through immediately, saying, “I’m ready to vote, are y’all?  You’re great and I hope that you hold it together for Hollywood.” And Randy comments that she’s improved significantly since last time around.

What did you think, “Idol” fans? And just in case you’re curious, her first audition is below. It’s interesting how Simon presciently said that her voice then wasn’t great, but that in two or three years time, it would be. And we see that it certainly is.
