Another WBKR Battle for The Big O Finalist Goes Deep on American Idol [Video]

In 2013, two former Battle for The Big O finalists made it deep into American Idol.  Owensboro's Jenny Beth Willis was one of the show's Top 20 girls.  And Paul Jolley, who was a finalist in our competition two years ago, made it all the way to the Idol Top 10 and spent the summer on tour with his fellow finalists.  This season, yet another contestant with ties to our annual talent competition is poised to make a run deep in the show.  Check out Brandy Neelly, who last year joined our auditions at Towne Square Mall and power-belted her way into the finals.

Whitney Houston is Alive in X Factor Contestant Lillie McCloud [Video]

THIS is why The X Factor is my favorite television talent show.  Each season I am immediately drawn in by big voices, amazing stories and outstanding talent.  And I know that I am not alone.  Last night, WBKR's American Idol expert Steve Thompson made a Facebook post about "the 54-year-old mom singing gospel" and claimed he too has already been sucked in to Season 3 of The X Factor.  And this is just one of the reasons why.  54-year-old Lillie McCloud.  She is INCREDIBLE and I swear you'll think the spirit and voice of Whitney Houston have found a new human host.  This resemblance in voice, appearance and mannerism is uncanny and this woman's talent is just unreal.  CHECK IT OUT!
