'American Idol' audition: Winthrop teen's Hollywood moment

A 15-year-old singer from Winthrop may be on her way to flattering the next American Idol.
Danielle Pease auditioned for the hit Fox Network talent demonstrate in August in New Jersey and daunted the judges enough to make it to the show's Hollywood rounds.

That means she will be one of about 200 people rival in Hollywood for the 20 slots in the show's semifinals.

The semifinalists are the ones who sing on the demonstrate and before the judges each week, trying to win the coveted American Idol title and a recording agreement.

Pease say she is legally restricted from talking about the show, but she did share some of her thoughts about her "Idol" audition by way of e-mail Friday.

She said there were more than 20,000 people in line, and she ended up being one of 100 public to sing for the jury. Pease said her nerves weren't too bad as she sang Janis Joplin's "Piece of My Heart."

Steven Tyler said, 'Well, you could use more feeling when you say take it, but you certainly did one thing today.' I of course said 'What?' Pease wrote in her e-mail. He said 'You took a small piece of my heart.' He was so sweet.
