Don't start writing your thank you speech for winning American Idol just yet, Sundance Head.
After last night's auditions in Birmingham, Tatiana McConnico may have something to say about the final outcome. Let's get to know this young hopeful a bit better ...
â€œMy advice to other teen girls who want to enter a scholarship competition is this: Enter because you want to, not because your mom, dad or anyone else thinks that it is a good idea," McConnico said at the time. "If you donâ€™t want to do it, you wonâ€™t put your heart into it, and if your heart is not in it, you wonâ€™t do your best.â€
Tatiana also was a Star Search finalist and starred in Alliance Theater productions of The Color Purple and The Wiz.
