August 31, 2017 – West Bend, WI – A heck of a night for West Bend West High School senior Madelyn Koepp as she was one of the top 60 chosen to audition for WISN Milwaukee Idol.
Koepp, 17, spent much of the day on Thursday at auditions at the Mitchel Park Domes in Milwaukee.
“I sang Everybody’s Got Somebody But Me by Hunter Hayes,” said Koepp. “I was a little nervous but more excited than anything. The girls I was grouped with were so nice.”
“I was not selected for a front-of-the-line pass for Chicago but I can still audition in Chicago,” said Koepp.
“Performing today was so amazing, I’ve wanted to do this since I was like 8 years old. It was a dream come true just to put myself out there and actually get this chance Being on camera was so crazy too; I felt so out of place but all the girls with me were so nice.”
Out of 60 performers five were chosen by celebrity judges and allowed to be first in line when American Idol debuts Sept, 11 in Chicago.
