When you’re watching Season 12 of American Idol, you might get a distinct feeling of deja vu when you see contestant Amber Holcomb.

Many contestants this season have already been on what Idol calls the “Road to Hollywood.” Amber Holcomb traveled that path last season, and after making it all the way to the Top 20, she’d hoped her dream of winning American Idol would finally be fulfilled this season.

In last year’s Americanidol.com interview, the Shepherd, Texas, native said that she was inspired to audition by the successes of Carrie Underwood and Fantasia, naming Carrie and Season 6 winner Jordin Sparks and Carrie as her favorite alums. She was confident in herself last year, speaking excitedly about her talent and the outgoing personality. It sounds like viewers will get the chance to see for themselves again this season.

Amber's pipes pushed her all the way through to the Top 4, but she lost out right before the "hometown visits" and came in fourth place behind Angie Miller, Candice Glover and Kree Harrison.
