Until auditioning for America's Got Talent, Julienne Irwin, who is from Bel Air, Maryland, had never really sung in front of an audience before. 1
Julienne Irwin was sorted into the "Music" category during the Vegas Round. Her performance in Episode 205 consisted of singing "At Last". Her audition was strong enough for the judges to send her to the Semifinals in Episode 206.
For the finale in Episode 212, Julienne Irwin sang "Teardrops on My Guitar" in a duet with Taylor Swift. Julienne was revealed to have finished in fourth place in the competition that same night, behind Terry Fator, Cas Haley, and Butterscotch.
After the Show
In 2014, Julienne was attending Belmont University in Nashville and embarked on her music career. Since then, she has performed in front of thousands, touring with Kenny Rogers and singing the national anthem to a crowd of over 150,000 at a NASCAR race.
In a time when young women top the charts in country music, Irwin has been determined to set herself apart from other young performers of her generation. Even after all the attention she received at a young age, Irwin maintains a solid head on her shoulders and fills her time doing things you might expect from a girl her age. "I am a member of a sorority and I am a huge sports fan. I probably inherited that from my dad. I always loved to sing and I used to pretend that my stuffed animals were my audience. I was too young (at 14) to audition for American Idol so I went on the internet and found America's Got Talent instead. I asked my dad if he'd let me try out." 2
- Julienne Irwin was the only act of Season 2 to appear in every episode since her debut: 9 simultaneous appearances from Episode 204 to Episode 212.
