Could the next American Idol winner come from New York State? According to Lionel Ritchie, Luke Bryan, and Katy Perry it could happen.

Madison VanDenburg is from Cohoes, NY in Albany County and absolutely floored all three American Idol judges with her rendition of Dan + Shay's smash hit "Speechless."

Madison received a standing ovation from the judges and punched her ticket to Hollywood and is moving on in the audition process.

Katy Perry told the New York native that she got "goosebumps" from her audition, and drew comparisons to Kelly Clarkson.

Although this is only the first round of auditions, to draw comparisons to the first ever American Idol winner looks great for Madison!

Good luck we are all rooting for you.
