Halie Hilburn - Oklahoma City Audition... by IdolxMuzic

We about lost our minds tonight when Halie Hilburn took to the "American Idol" seal for her audition. This country girl is not only a singer -- she's a singing ventriloquist, which is outstanding.

She performed "I Wanna Be Your Cowboy Sweetheart" with her puppet Oscar and while she was no Alyse Eady, she definitely did the song proud. We were a little surprised the judges weren't more impressed -- do they know how hard that is to do?

But they at least wanted to hear more from her, so she gave them 15 seconds of a second song and the judges put her through with four yes votes. Keith Urban advised her, "Oscar is holding you back ... baby, you can sing."

What did you think, "Idol" fans? We could've done without the montage of Oscar ending up in the garbage. That was sad. »
