Kokomo Girl "Goes To Hollywood" In American Idol

Last updated on Sunday, February 10, 2008

(UNDATED) - Amanda Overmyer, a 2001 graduate of Delphi High School, is competing for a finalist spot on season 7 of “American Idol.”

She grew up in Camden, and now works as a nurse at Lincare in Kokomo.

The judges were impressed and each approved for her to move on in the competition in last Tuesday's show. Her father, C.J. Overmyer describes his daughter's "American Idol" experience as a "test" for her to figure out whether she wants to pursue her singing passion or continue her career in nursing.

He didn't disclose whether she had made it in the top 24 finalists or not, but added that he speaks with her daily.
