Thats the tune from pint-sized performer Alexis Grace, who was declared a Top 12 finalist on American Idol this past Wednesday (Feb. 18).
Grace wowed the judges with her voice and her style which included a patch of pink hair and a cocktail dress but she wasnt always a budding fashionista.
The Idol judges told her to dirty up her look a couple weeks ago, and Grace has been hard at work finding the style thatll make her a star.
Shes been shopping and having her girlfriends pull together a bluesy look to match her smokey, Aretha Franklin-inspired vocals.
Says Grace: I like the whole 60s soul/cocktail dress vibe.
For now, she compares her sassy style to that of Joss Stone, Duffy, or Amy Winehouse minus the beehive.
