Cedar Hill High School Sophomore Isabell Gallegos is relishing in her golden ticket experience to compete on American Idol. The sixteen year old was shown on the February 9th and 15th episodes of the hit show that aired on Channel 4 locally.
Now that her group has been eliminated from the “star-maker” show she can talk about her experience. “It was a lot of fun, but the hardest part was keeping it all a secret. We were sworn to secrecy until we were off the show,” said Isabell Gallegos. “It was really hard after people saw the first show, but all I could say was to stay tuned and watch the show.”
Isabell plays saxophone in the Cedar Hill High School Marching Band and Wind Ensemble, but she sang the song Every Time You Lie by Demi Lovato, for her talent audition inGalveston.
“I was thrilled when Jennifer Lopez said she liked me and Randy Jackson commented on how young I looked. Stephen Tyler did not say much, but they all gave me a yes!” Her entire group was eliminated from the show that aired February 15.
Isabell says her family encouraged her to try out for American Idol and drove her to Galveston for the audition last August. She says she will try out for the show again. She plans to study music when she goes to college.
