Felicia Barton is part of the top 36 of the eighth season of American Idol. Currently residing in Virginia Beach, VA, she is married and raising a son. She has been performing from a very early age, starting from when she was just two years old. Her inclusion on the show was partly controversial; she went as far as the final stage of Hollywood week, but was eliminated during the last deliberations. However, upon the sudden disqualification of Joanna Pacitti from the Top 36, she was wheeled in to take her slot.
