WIMLINGTON, NC (WECT) – A singer from Wilmington won a "golden ticket" to Hollywood to compete in this season of American Idol.

The country saw Amanda Lawrence win the ticket Wednesday night during the Charlotte audition episode of the competition. She also appeared on the show for just a few seconds during the season premiere.

Check out her "Road to Hollywood" video above.

Lawrence said the experience so far has been very humbling. She said there was a calm atmosphere in the judge's room – a contrast to the highly publicized feud between judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey.

If you want to see Lawrence perform live, she sings with local band, Shameless Prophets. Their next live performance is scheduled for Saturday, January 26 at Hell's Kitchen.

You can watch American Idol on FOX Wilmington.
