Seretha Guinn – Charlotte Audition – American… by IdolxMuzic

In a rather (ahem) fresh take on an “American Idol” audition, 26-year-old Seretha Guinn regaled the judges with a soulful, R&B version of the theme song from “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.” When she announced her song choice, the judges’ eyebrows definitely shot up, but Seretha got the last laugh — they loved her.

“Incredible. I’m so proud of you. I’m so proud you have the baby and with her father getting in that horrible accident. I can’t imagine. You’re a superstar,” says Nicki Minaj, referring to Seretha’s boyfriend and baby daddy having to recover from some serious injuries sustained in an accident.

Randy adds, “You got a little Whitney thing there, it’s interesting.” and Mariah says, “I think you have a beautiful voice” and actually says she liked the “Fresh Prince” better than Seretha’s second audition song, “How Do I Live.”

What do you think, “Idol” fans? Were you a Seretha fan?
