Normal native Leah Marlene is on this season of American Idol

Leah Marlene, from Normal, is a contestant on this season of American Idol (the show’s 20th, if you can believe it). Marlene got a golden ticket to head to Hollywood, where she will compete against a whole bunch of other very talented people. 

She seems very quirky and sweet and endlessly endearing. She’s pretty talented, too. 

You can watch her Idol audition below, and see videos of her performances on her Facebook page. Hollywood week episodes will air next week on ABC.
