Adriana Latonio



Adriana Latonio makes the cut to the top 10 females in Season 13 of American Idol on FOX.


On Feb. 20, Adriana, a 17-year-old student at East High School in Anchorage, sang her way into the top 10 on American Idol in front of superstar judges and a packed audience in Las Vegas.


The show’s producers have nicknamed Adriana the “Alaskan Beauty.”  Last night was her first appearance on American Idol and they must have been holding the best for last as the show kicked off on Jan. 16, 2013.


Adriana represented Alaska well with her confidence and her ability to deliver.  Her performance was referred to by the panel of  judges as one of the best of the night. 


American Idol can be seen each Wednesday and Thursday at 7 p.m. on FOX 4 KTBY.  Look for Adriana to appear on Idol again next Wednesday, February 27, 2013.
