Sorry to be harping on this so much, I guess it's because I actually MET Eryn and heard her sing and know what she's capable of. Not only does she have a great voice and (spoiler alert) is already in the top 40, but she is kind of a diva and has a lot of soul/attitude-- so I can't imagine her not having some kind of Hollywood conflict. Vote for the Worst has been waiting for some Erin footage as well, here : http://www.votefortheworst.com/forum/topic/666779/eryn-kelly
Secondly, I just re-looked at the list of the supposed Top 40 (spoiler alert-- do not read it if you don't want to know). http://www.joesplaceblog.com/american-idol-10-contestant-listings/ I went over the list twice, and Erin is the ONLY one who I have not seen featured on ANY AI episodes at all. She is also the ONLY one who has *no* singing footage available, either on an AI episode on or Myspace / personal website / Facebook / YouTube. I don't understand how someone who raised funds by having people in her community in Bradenton, FL donate money for her to get to Idol auditions has NO video footage anywhere on the internet. (Her "Road to American Idol" video doesn't count- they have one for every contestant and she doesn't sing in it).
PS - Remember how I swore the colors of the backgrounds were changing from city to city? They were! New Orleans was pinkish red, LA pinkish purple, New York purple, Nashville bluish purple, San Francisco purple, Milwaukee blue, Austin bluish green. Significance of this? No idea, but it's clear as day in the Top 40 pics and makes for a very pretty photo montage (I'm sure we'll have this in a future episode). Maybe it makes it easier for them to find contestants when going through hours and hours of tape--- (and more importantly, editing hours and hours of tape!)
If someone finds footage or audio of her singing, please send it to me, so we can get it up! Thanks!
