Zoanette Johnson – Oklahoma City Audition… by IdolxMuzic

So, you know how sometimes on “American Idol” there are auditions where you’re 90% sure the adult is mentally ill and not in on the joke? This is probably not one of those, but it could go either way.

Zoanette Johnson took the judges by surprise with her … interesting rendition of the National Anthem. It was affected, featured Zoanette’s weird, whistle-y upper register and then at the end had some step moves. Beyonce could take a page from Zoanette’s book.

The judges could not stop laughing. Keith Urban actually fell right out of his chair. After Zoanette finished, Randy says, “You’re a whole party all by yourself” and Nicki adds, “I am obsessed with you.”

They put her through to Hollywood and frankly, we’re ecstatic. Hollywood Week needs characters like Zoanette to keep things interesting.
