American Idol is not the most important thing in life for Lakisha Jones.
That would be her four-year old daughter, Brionne.
It's a goal Jones has had for awhile. After all, the pop star Lakisha lists as her favorite? Kelly Clarkson.
Seen her wiping away tears after the judges relayed such good news last night, Lakisha could one day be following in Clarkson's winning footsteps. Millions will be watching to see if she does.
