Kady Malloy is an 18 year old from Houston, Texas. She wowed the judges in her Dallas audition with both her great voice but her uncanny ability to impersonate other singers. Kady Malloy's specialty was a dead-on Britney Spears impersonation. While we didn't see too much of Kady once in Hollywood, her place in the Top 24 of American Idol seems well deserved.
Kady's journey on American Idol ended on March 5, after singing her rendition of Queen's "Who Wants to Live Forever."
"I knew that even if I was going out, I would go out doing my favorite song ever," she says. "I love it, and Freddy Mercury is my idol, so it was just an honor being able to sing Freddy."
In talking about the contestants who have recorded albums previously and are in the competition, Kady said, "I just don't think that that's very important, because this industry is so unpredictable, and anybody can fail at an album. These days, anybody can pretty much get a record deal too, so a second chance. It's just based on talent anyway. A second chance is fine."
As for her future plans, she says, "I definitely want to open up an animal shelter and I am definitely going to keep working on my music. Eventually, I also want to open up a camp for kids, and I definitely want to be a spokesperson for gay rights."
