COULD Hatfield be the next American Idol?

Not our town, obviously, but a young Texan lass who shares the name.

Was flicking through the channels the other day when I stumbled across the show - the US version of Pop Idol.

And the first audition I saw was that of 24-year-old farmgirl Kayla Hatfield.

She didn't have the best voice in the world, but judges Randy Jackson and Simon Cowell saw enough potential in her to vote her through to the next stage.

Good luck in Hollywood, Hatfield!
