After the ShowEdit

Now 21, Julienne is attending Belmont University in Nashville and has embarked on her music career. Since then, she has performed in front of thousands, touring with Kenny Rogers and singing the national anthem to a crowd of over 150,000 at a NASCAR race.

In a time when young women top the charts in country music, Irwin is determined to set herself apart from other young performers of her generation. Even after all the attention she received at a young age, Irwin maintains a solid head on her shoulders and fills her time doing things you might expect from a girl her age. "I am a member of a sorority and I am a huge sports fan. I probably inherited that from my dad. I always loved to sing and I used to pretend that my stuffed animals were my audience. I was too young (at 14) to audition for American Idol so I went on the internet and found America's Got Talent instead. I asked my dad if he'd let me try out." 2


  • Julienne Irwin was the only act of Season 2 to appear in every epsiode since her debut: 9 simultaneous appearances from Episode 204 to Episode 212.
