American Idol contestant Emkay Nobilette is this season’s current mystery. She has not one, not two, but three names. You might come across her as Emkay Brazil or M. K. Nobilette, but the Emkay Nobilette version looks to be what Idol producers have picked for her journey on this year’s show.
During her audition interview for the series, Emkay filled us in a little on who she is, telling cameras she owes her Golden Ticket to her family’s encouragement. See, the San Francisco performer decided to give Idol a whirl because it’s her aunt’s favorite show.
“She called me and told me it’s coming to San Francisco and said, ‘What do you have to lose?’”
Nothing at all seeing as Emkay scored herself a Golden Ticket and earned a trip to Hollywood, where she zoomed into the Top 31. “Making it here is pretty cool especially because my family wants me to do this,” she says, adding she’s happy to have them in her corner.
Although judge Jennifer Lopez hasn’t declared herself for Emkay’s team quite yet (Harry Connick, Jr. and Keith Urban were the two who sent her through) we’re confident she’ll come around. We mean, just listen to Emkay in the videos below!
