We couldn’t believe the bullying young Briana Oakley went through just for singing on an episode of Maury.

 

But the 16-year-old singer blew us away with her version of Patti Griffin’s “Up to the Mountain.” The American Idol 2013 were impressed by her tone and vocal control for being such a youngster.
 
So will Briana sing her way into the Season 12 Top 40 this year? Our spoiler list doesn’t include her name, meaning she was cut after the group performances on Round 3 of Hollywood Week.
