If you haven't been following American Idol this year, it might be time to start.

University of North Carolina senior Alexis Jones who also happened to be Lumbee was given a Golden Ticket after her stunning renditions of “Spotlight” by Jennifer Hudson and “All I ask” by Adele.

She even auditioned in a wampum squash blossom necklace and spent some time talking to the judges about her Native background.

We'll be following her in Hollywood Week!  

Good luck Alexis!

Enjoy this video of her singing from her youtube channel.
