American Idol Contestant Struck Down

Twenty-five year old Alexis Cohen aka Glitter Girl was pronounced dead at a New Jersey hospital this morning at 6am. She had been struck by a car and was found by passers-by on the side of the street 300 yards from her own car. Her death has been ruled a homicide. Hopefully Simon was not in the vicinity.

This is her infamous audition for American Idol in 2007. Sadly, she was no Grace Slick. Watch it through to the end...



In the writing world this is what we call "irony." Sad but true. And maybe in some odd way, a cautionary tale. At least she got her fifteen minutes. I'll look forward to the biopic.

Wow. I've not seen that before. She was a very scattered individual. R.I.P. young lady...
