Isabelle Parell, a 15-year old student from Centerton, IN, auditioned last night on American Idol and earned herself a Golden Ticket to Hollywood for her efforts.
Parell performed “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” with the help of Keith Urban who got things rolling with a little duet at the start. Even Mariah Carey was singing along as Isabelle performed.
The judges had no reservations about putting Isabelle through to the next stage. Mariah praised her for picking a Christmas song, which she says she really enjoys, and thought her “sweet” quality added to the performance. Nicki liked her attitude and how she came in to the audition with poise. There’s even a little confusion from Keith as he gives her feedback twice despite thinking his turn was skipped.
We’ll be seeing more of Isabelle Parell on American Idol 2013 as she travels to Hollywood and competes to continue.
This was my favorite moment of week 1, American Idol 2013…
I loved her soft, gentle touch with this song. I like her!
