  • AMERICAN IDOL: Lewis dropped after 'group night'

    Kenzi Lewis, the Hodgenville teen who received a golden ticket to Hollywood after her American Idol audition last summer, made it through the first round of Hollywood Week.

    Unfortunately, she was sent home after Wednesday’s “group” night. (The Herald News first reported she would be featured Feb. 17.)

    Lewis, 15, was shown last week in a short televised clip with host Ryan Seacrest before her audition at Pasadena Civic Auditorium. On that show, she survived a cut that narrowed the 327 contestants to 168.
