TVOM: "The American Idol audition train steamrolls on, with the next stop in the Twin City of Minneapolis, for the first time in seven years. If we lived in a world where people were judged solely by the bracelets that they wear, then our first contestant would receive a golden ticket from me without even singing. Shannon Berthiaume, 17, is up first and claims to never have performed in front of a live audience before. She appears to be nervous and scared, but that all disappears once she opens her mouth. She’s described as a “raw talent” and easily gets her golden ticket to Hollywood."
