Texan Singer Laci Kaye Booth Will Likely Become the Next 'American Idol'

By Pippa Raga

We don't know about you guys, but we've been dying to see this season of American Idol ever since that "Don't Stop Me Now" cover of Queen's aired during the Oscars commercials last week. It was such an awesome mashup of talented amateurs in black-tie attire promoting their upcoming season while simultaneously milking the popularity and success of Bohemian Rhapsody

The young contestant who most caught our eye was Laci Kaye Booth, 23, who rides up the elevator with Ryan Seacrest and starts us off with Queen's opening lyrics, "Tonight, I'm gonna have myself a real good time." And when she appeared on Idol last night, the Houston native blew her audition out of the water and was immediately invited to join the group of judges in Hollywood.
