It was a tough night last night watching McKinney’s own Hollie Cavanagh get eliminated from American Idol. The 18-year-old was absolutely amazing on the show and did great to make the top 4. She will now continue on her path to try and become a music star, Idol obviously is a huge stepping stone to making those dreams come true. But with her elimination Leigh Ann, who personally knows Hollie, was emotional over the elimination.
Leigh Ann sent over this reaction after Hollie’s Elimination.
“I’m sitting here with Hailey, tears in our eyes, stunned and saddened that Hollie didn’t make the top 3. She is such an amazing, talented singer. I know without a doubt this is not the end for her. It is only the beginning for Hollie. She is a class act. I was amazed and in awe of her goodbye performance on Idol last night.
I know that soon, very soon, I’ll have the honor of playing her music on the radio. I’m so proud of her. Hailey just summed it up best by saying “I love Hollie and I love her singing”. As much as many of us would love to have her babysit for us again, I think those days are over for this superstar. Besides, I doubt we could afford her now:)”
We’ll see Hollie soon enough, and in all likely-hood you’ll be hearing her just as soon on The NEW 103.7 Lite FM.
