Every city that holds auditions on American Idol has a Platinum Ticket awarded to the best singer of the group.
On the premiere episode, the first Platinum Ticket was offered after the day’s auditions in Nashville, and it was a special moment.
This ticket went to Huntergirl, and the presentation was an incredible event.
After the auditions, the judges decided which singer was the best and they ended up video calling Huntergirl with a special offer.
Luke Bryan offered Huntergirl a chance to play her music in front of a room full of fans at his personal bar in Nashville. While she was performing, all three judges showed up.
While she was happy to see them, and she was thankful, they then went onto the stage and presented her with the first Platinum Ticket in front of the fans.
Who is Huntergirl on American Idol?
Huntergirl is a 23-year-old who works as a music therapist for military veterans.
She told the judges that she listens to their stories and then sings them songs based on those stories to help them deal with trauma and PTSD.
Her real name is Hunter Wolkonowski and she graduated from Middle Tennessee State where she studied music business.
She also has one single she has released called We’re Not in Kansas Anymore.
Her hard work paid off as Luke Bryan called her his “favorite female country voice I’ve heard in five years” of working on American Idol.
“Having three of my idols tell me that I’m good enough and that I’m not crazy and that I could do music and for them to pick me,” she said after getting her ticket. “It just means a lot to me and I’m going to try to make you guys proud.”
