Sometimes American Idol surprises us during their American Idol auditions 2013. We see a contestant and think they are a hot mess, but then they open their mouth to sing and surprise the hell out of us. Ashley Smith was one of those surprises last night on the American Idol 2013 auditions in Charlotte.

She came on last night and looked a little odd with her blonde hair and nose ring, but then she went around and talked to everyone and interrupted interviews other contestants were having on-camera. She appeared to be in for the attention and camera time.

Then she went in front of the judges and announced she was singing a Carrie Underwood song and I laughed. Then she sang. Check out Ashley Smith audition for American Idol Season 12 here:
