National American Miss Competes For American Idol

This past summer American Idol made its whirlwind coast to coast tour, and as expected many National American Miss contestants were there to take their turn in front of the judges!

The 2007 National American Miss Kentucky Teen Olivia Henken form Kentucky made it one step shy making it to Hollywood.  Even thought she didn’t make it, we are all still so proud of her. 

Arianna Afsar, a State Finalist for California NAMiss in 2008 and our Teen talent winner will have a chance to be the next American Idol!  Here is a link to the article on the American Idol website:

Way to go Arianna, we will be watching!

  1. Hey Matt!

    I’m Sydney Price and I will be competing in the Georgia Teen pageant here pretty soon. My dad and I met you at Nationals 2008, and we are SO glad that you are now our director! I loved hearing about the NAM girls that have gone on to try out for American Idol. I’ve been watching the show ever since it started and since I’m finally old enough, I’m going to try out too! Season 9 auditions are in 2 weeks in ATL, and I’m really excited to be going. No matter what happens, I think it would just be a fantastic experience. I just want to say that 3 years ago, before I ever got involved with National American Miss, I probably would have never had the confidence to even consider doing this. This program has definitely built up my confidence in everything I do, and I’m so happy to be apart of it 🙂

    I will keep you posted with how the auditions go, and I can’t wait to see you at the Georgia pageant!
