Tenna Torres, who hails from Queens, has made it into the season 12 American Idol semifinals.


She was one of our own before she made her way to Vegas as one of American Idol’s semifinalists for Season 12.

Tenna Torres, 28, is from Jamaica, Queens and worked as a promotional model before Idol.

According to her Facebook artist page, the pop singer and song writer is currently not signed with any record label, but that may change soon.

One dream, however, already came true for Torres when she auditioned for her musical idol, Mariah Carey, one of the season 12 judges.

“I’ve been listening to Carey since I was five years old,” she said in her pre-audition introduction. She even went to Camp Mariah and sang for her when she was 13, which Carey instantly remembered as she looked through Torres’ pictures.

Belting out “You’ve Got A Friend” by Carole King, Torres not only impressed Carey with her singing skills, but the other judges too, including fellow Queens native Nicki Minaj, and was unanimously voted through to the next round.
