Emily Anne Reed's Old School Charm Buys Her a Ticket to Hollywood (VIDEO)

'American Idol' auditioners can be bucketed into a few key categories. Run-of-the-mill vocally challenged, weirdos, the semi-good people who make it to Hollywood and you never see again, and the ones you know you'll be seeing for the long haul.

However, Emily Anne Reed defies all those categories.

Reed had the prerequisite sob story that seems to be necessary to score a golden ticket this year, and she also came equipped with some really distinctive chops.

Sounding like a cross between Norah Jones, Duffy and Corinne Bailey Rae -- she's on her way to Hollywood.

Steven Tyler wasn't buying it. J-Lo and Randy Jackson loved her! Once she sang her second song, the judges were convinced she was one to watch.

It will be interesting to see how she stacks up to the rest of the power balladeers who have made it to Hollywood.

'American Idol' airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8PM ET on FOX.

Emily Anne Reed is certainly on her way to doing well. I found her to be (without a doubt) a star having been born to the eyes of the public. Good luck and God Speed
