When Julie Zorrilla first walked in to her San Francisco audition on American Idol last night, the judges couldn't get over her shoes.
By the time this contestant exited, however, it was her voice and her story that was the talk of the show.
There was Stefano Langone (below) and how he overcame a car accident that led medics to believe he was dead.
There was James Durbin, who has Tourettes syndrome, a son and a voice that reminds us of Adam Lambert.
Zorrilla, who turned 20 the day of her try out, currently resides in Hollywood. But she grew up in Colombia, only to flee it with her parents during trying times of political turmoil. How impressed was Randy by her talent? He compared her to Fantasia. That's quite the compliment...
