For Bailey Brown, life is in the fast lane. At only 16 years old, she's accomplished a lot more than most adults.
"Just feeling the spotlight all around you. You can’t see anyone around you and then you hear clapping. That's exciting," Brown said.
But then again how many teens do you know have the spotlight on Fox's American Idol?
"It was really exciting and nerve racking,” Brown said.
In August, Brown auditioned for the hit TV show in San Antonio and made the cut.
While she didn’t make the show’s final round, she proved just how strong she was when they sent her home, saying there’s always next year.
"Oh no. I’m going to be the winner next year hopefully. I’m keeping my fingers crossed," Bailey said.
