Maine’s Julia Gagnon has a great chance to be the next American Idol.

22-year-old Julia Gagnon wowed the judges during the audition phase of American Idol to the point of winning a platinum ticket. This means that the 22-year-old college student from Cumberland, Maine, got to skip right to the singing competition. From there, she hasn't looked back! Julia got the votes to get her to the top 24!

For three hours on Sunday, April 14, America watched as the group of 24 was whittled down ever-so slowly to the top 20. Julia was with two other singers when she got the news that yes, she made it! It was very emotional for Julia (and anyone watching) as she went on to sing again. This time, it was Fantasia's "I Believe". She left the audience on their feet, and judge Katy Perry was left in tears.

Julia got the news that she made it to the top 14 based on that performance and our votes! She sang Jelly Roll's "I Need a Favor" in celebration, and she killed it! She was amazing, and still needs our votes to keep going!
