at . Comments

After last night's American Idol auditions, the front-runners remain Lakisha Jones and Melinda Doolittle.

Stephanie Hits a High Note
But a buzz is growing around Stephanie Edwards. She looked beautiful. She sang perfectly. As a contestant that's flown under the radar of most fans so far, we thought it was time to introduce you to Edwards a bit more, courtesy of her official bio:
  • She's only 19. Wow.
  • She lists Justin Timberlake as a favorite male pop artists. We wonder if this means she also like Chris Richardson, often compared to JT throughout the competition so far.
  • She was named "Savannh Star" in 2005.
  • While Fantasia is Stephanie's favorite Idol victor so far, she cites Simon Cowell as her top judge. "He's really nice to me," Edwards says.

We wish Stephanie - and all American Idol contestants - the best of luck. If she continues at her current pace, fans won't need our help to know all about this talented singer.
