Meet Group 3 - Part 2

Arianna Afsar
Arianna is part of the 2008 Student Crew - The bulk of 16-year olds that flooded Idol this year. Only this is a teen with a purpose. From California, she founded the organization Adopt A GranFriend, where high school students frequent the area nursing homes and visit with senior citizens. She auditioned with "Put your records on," and sang it better than Megan did during Group 2 night this past Tuesday. We have high hopes for Arianna. Even if she doesn't make it through this year, she's got plenty of time to make a name for herself.

Felicia Barton
Felicia is the replacement girl - the newbie picked to fill in for disqualified Joanna Pacitti. No one seems to know much about Felicia, other than she's a wife, mother and lives in Virginia Beach. Her husband recently said Felicia got the call from Idol producers to come back while watching the Judges Mansion episode with a group of 150 people at her church.
