Shannon O'Hara of Mooresville, North Carolina has made it past some of the most difficult rounds on the current season of American Idol, having already made it to Hollywood and everything! 

She's only 17.

"Lay me at the throne, leave me there alone To gaze upon Your glory Sing to You this song, take me to the King" This old, slightly out of tune piano giving me all the feels Jesus, help me to always find my self at Your feet

O'Hara says she's the only person in her family with musical abilities, having taught herself how to sing and play a few instruments. 

"I've been singing for as long as I can remember," she admits. 

The NC resident will be heavily featured on this weekend's episode of AI, Sunday the 15th and Monday the 16th, according to our sources!

Can't wait to watch her kill it! Bring the crown back home!

I MADE IT TO THE TOP 50!!!! AAAHH!!! I know y’all didn’t see me much in my room (room 3), but I was there haha, and it was incredible getting to talk to the judges!! I can’t believe how they did me with the mic though😂 even though it didn’t feel like it took me THAT long, it was funny @americanidol 😉😂 ANYWAYS, I’ll be on tonight! You will get to see another solo from me, but this time, with my guitar! I am most proud of this performance out of all of mine on the show. But is it enough? Do I make it to the top 24? Tune in at 8pm on @abcnetwork 😘
