Blumont Virginia tore it up on American Idol. She is one of 12 ..yes TWELVE kids from a tiny town near the base of Snickers Gap in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Loudon County Virginia, emerged as the early sentimental favorite on the opening Idol by getting the very first ticket. Already there is alot of information about the beauty ..
USA Today says "Here's the poster child for Season 9. Maddy Curtis, 16, is the ninth of 12 children, and her next-oldest brother has Down Syndrome. Her family also adopted three other boys with Down, putting Maddy in the middle. "They see the world in colors, and we need to see the world that way," says Maddy, who comes across like a real sweetheart.
Maddy has a surreal moment upon entering the room -- she's been watching the show since she was 8. She chooses to sing Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah (famously sung on the show by Jason Castro)
