Crush the Top 14 on Sunday, all of Maine is rooting for you, Julia!

This season of American Idol has been of particular interest from all of us who live here in the State of Maine, because for once, we have a contestant who could go all the way and win the whole thing.

Earler this week Maine's own Julia Gagnon leaped into the Top 14 of the competition, but the job isn't finished!

American Idol is back for the next round, Sunday & Monday night at 8pm. You can see it here in Bangor, on ABC 7, or stream it the next day on Hulu.

Busting out an impressive cover of the Jelly Roll tune "Need A Favor", Julia survives to sing another week, with a pretty solid shot to be there at the end.

As you can see from the comments on her performance, she has fans all over the country, including a ton of support from Maine


All of us from Maine are so proud of you!


Get it, girl! Much from Maine!!


Nice to hear a simple song from Julia. Her voice sounded great, showcasing her tone and command of rhythm. Loved when she went into her upper register, the swoops, the grit, great connection to the lyric. One of her best performances.

Julia, who is from Cumberland, and attends the University of Southern Maine, is having a blast with this entire experience, which you can follow on her Instagram page

If you would like to support her journey, you can purchase a t-shirt, to help with expenses while she in Los Angeles, performing on the show!
