Georgia singer compared to Katy Perry on American Idol Audition

Camryn Leigh Smith auditions for American Idol Season 3

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - During the season 3 premiere of ‘American Idol’, a Georgia teen shocked the judges with her amazing audition.

Sixteen year old singer-songwriter Camryn Leigh Smith from Acworth, GA was compared to a young Katy Perry during her audition and Perry herself said Camryn, “gave her hope for season 3 of American Idol.”

Of course it was no surprise that all three judges gave Smith a golden ticket to move on to Hollywood Week.
