Joanna Pacitti, Leneshe Young Lead American Idol Auditions in Louisville

at . Comments

Two wholly opposite contestants made it through on American Idol last night:

1. Joanna Pacitti. Critics might consider this contestant to be a ringer. She signed a deal with Geffen Records in 2006 and even released an album. It tanked and she was released from the label in September 2007. Sang She sang “We Belong” by Pat Benetar and grew emotional when she received her ticket to Hollywood.

2. Leneshe Young. No previous professional experience here. Barely even a home. This 18-year old from Cincinnati sang an original song for her audition. Simon Cowell compared her to Leona Lewis.
