Orlando resident snags a golden ticket to Hollywood on 'American Idol'

Orlando resident snags a golden ticket to Hollywood on 'American Idol'

Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan are at the judges' table this time around and fortunately - or maybe unfortunately - there isn't a Simon Cowell-type in the bunch.

William Casanova, 26, Washington, DC: A woman's shoe salesman, he charmed the judges with his smooth, flirtatious personality, and earned a golden ticket by singing Donny Hathaway's "A Song For You". You're in and then you're out.

Coined "Bikini Girl" right away, she and judge Kara DioGuardi got into a sing-off when it came to Mariah Carey's "Vision of Love", which led to some serious shade being thrown at the judges' table. "I feel really excited about this".

She did, but it wasn't quite enough.

"We are very proud, I'm very proud, especially to see my little brother go so far in what he wants so bad. and this is what he wants, and he got it", his brother says.

"One day I got home from school and my mom said she wanted to talk to me about something, so I went over there and talked to her and she said "I think you should try out for American Idol". and i said mom". She is also the first to receive a golden ticket to Hollywood.

"Arranging and working with the contestants and I put the band together obviously, really the music department runs through me".

On the second season of the show, the confident 23-year-old shocked the judges with his rendition of "Always and Forever". Music was a way of expression once the musician made his way to the United States, and it turned life toward the positive. "I wanted her to see the good in it and hopefully she can pick up some of that too, along the way". But Alyssa proved what I've said countless times - it doesn't matter how old you are because talent is talent. Lionel can't seem to get Ron out of his head, though, and he brings him back to change his vote to "yes".

"Definitely to record an album". "Everyone was crying. I was crying and then Luke Bryan came out, and he shakes my mom and dad's hand and says, 'You birthed a lovely mind, ' and all of that stuff". "Nothing's gonna stop me from pushing toward my dream".

Katy beckons the boy over to the panel before letting him plant a wet one on her cheek.
