Baylie Brown of 'American Idol'
Hometown: Krum, TX
Notable For: Baylie was an audition standout as a 16-year-old, but "Idol" decided she wasn't ready. So Baylie returned a few years later and her voice had matured, her confidence was higher and suddenly it was totally acceptable to call her "hot." To that, "American Idol" says... Score! Few profiles have proven to be as reliable successful on "American Idol" as "cute, blonde and country," which could set Baylie up for a long run, if she follows in the footsteps of Carrie Underwood, Kellie Pickler, Kristy Lee Cook and more. Then again, ask folks like Janell Wheeler, Kristen McNamara, Alaina Whitaker and Kady Malloy how far it got them.
