Canadian TikTok star Vivian Hicks blew the judges away with her recent “American Idol” audition — so much so, she received a coveted golden ticket, propelling her directly to the Hollywood rounds.
But don’t expect to see her (apparently incredible) try-out on a TV near you anytime soon, ET Canada reports.
Hicks, of Georgetown, Ontario, took to Twitter on March 15 to share the good news with her followers, writing, “I’m going to Hollywood!”
Still, the update came with one caveat — fans would not be able to watch the audition that landed the 16-year-old on the big stage.
“Even though my audition for ‘American Idol’ will not be airing, I’m so proud of myself for taking this huge step and for being the first Canadian to ever receive a golden ticket!” she added. “I’ve met so many amazing artists.”
