The first thing that Katy asked after hearing her sing was why she hasn’t pursued singing professionally. When Demi explained that she gets really insecure because of “not looking like the other girls” Katy Perry cried out “There’s probably not someone who looks like you because you’re supposed to be the one that looks like you, you know, that influences all the girls that look like you that don’t feel like anyone else.” The judges loved her, and the discovered star was off to Hollywood.
