There seemed to be a bit of online buzz about season 12 American Idol hopeful Jett Hermano at the start of the season, and yet we saw nary a glimpse of her during Hollywood Week.

The pretty Seattle native seems to be a crafty veteran, as her online bio included a list of musicians she’s worked with that read like a veritable “who’s who.” It seemed the folks at Idol decided to save her for this Las Vegas round, as they did with Adriana Latonio -- the tiny girl witht he big, big voice.

Jett has a hip hop flair and a unique sound, despite some comparisons to Season 11's Jessica Sanchez. And she’s an accomplished musician, playing both the guitar and piano. In the Vegas rounds, she performed Rihanna’s “Only Girl (In The World)” at the piano. We actually quite liked the performance.

So just how far did Jett Hermano Get On American Idol 2013? With judge faves like Janelle Arthur and Melinda Ademi in her Las Vegas group, the competition was just a bit too fierce for her to make the cut. But her intriguing song choice and musical abilities make us sad she went home before the Top 20.
