A sad Idol footnote

A bit of sad news for American Idol fans this weekend: the twice-failed auditioner known as “Glitter Girl”, Alexis Cohen, was hit by a car and killed early Saturday.

Less-obsessive Idol fans still, no doubt, remember Alexis flipping the double-bird to Simon Cowell during the AI7 auditions, a scene that played out all over the Internet at the time.

She came back for AI8 auditions calmer, and more composed, but was talked into flipping the judges the bird again when she was sent home.

Condolences to her family and friends.
