It shouldn’t be a surprise that Steven Tyler said yes the moment she walked into the room.
Season 11 premiere of American Idol and if anything still makes sense in this world, Charlotte’s Brittany Kerr could read aloud from a list of side effects associated with prescription medication and need only impress one more judge to secure a elusive golden ticket.
It shouldn’t be a shock to learn that second judge was Randy Jackson.
Auditioning in Savannah, the 24-year old NBA dancer delivered a soulful rendition of Joss Stone’s “Spoiled” to earn a spot in Hollywood … but it’s much more than the vocal — form-hugging, ripped white jeans, bare midriff and an overall sense of why America is the single greatest country on the planet — that sent waves of newfound inspiration to thousands of our nation’s finest Google image searchers.
Pixels moving at lightning speed; her name a trending topic on Twitter; a story gone global [NBA: Brittany Kerr, une danseuse des Charlotte Bobcats, se lance dans la chanson] — what a difference a day makes.
These pictures are most likely what led you here, you’re only skimming this. Many words are overrated anyway, used in the wrong context, lend the wrong meaning. Some words sound exactly like others but are spelled differently, it’s confusing. Who needs them? All this type, filling in space between photos of Brittany Kerr and never really connecting the story. Relax, it’s not supposed to. There’s an internet blackout to protest PIPA and SOPA [the Bills That Want to Censor Your Internet] and a lot of research sites are down. We’ll have to do the best with what’s available:
Second season as a dancer for the Charlotte Bobcats … something about the Lady Cats being two-time defending NBA Dance Team Champions … goal is to sing the national anthem at a professional game … photos here, here, here, here and here … cover girl of the 2011-2012 Lady Cats calendar … whatever can be said about her Twitter account and Facebook fan page that hasn’t been said already … don’t forget her performance and interview on Charlotte’s Fox News Edge. There’s probably more.
SOPA and PIPA are intended to strengthen protections against copyright infringement and intellectual property theft, with suspected websites blocked from search-engine results. The legislation pits content providers, such as the film and music industries, against tech companies which argue the laws are a dangerous overreach allowing corporate interests the power make these choices. Opponents say the laws would stifle expression, add costs and rules which would destroy the nature of the internet.

Enough of that. Here’s more with Brittany Kerr, proving Steven Tyler’s first impression was correct.
