TURNERSVILLE – “American Idol” fans will soon be able to watch South Jersey country singer Payton Taylor compete for a golden ticket — even though she already received one last season.
Taylor, 22, of Turnersville actually appeared on a March 2018 “Idol” episode to play guitar for her singing sister, Taryn Coccia, 18. Once judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie started chatting with the sisters,Taylor got her own impromptu audition, according to TasteofCountry.com
Both sisters earned coveted golden tickets to advance to the show’s “Hollywood Week” finals. But after some soul-searching, the sisters returned the golden tickets, deciding they did not want to compete against one another.
