American Idol Top 36: Allison Iraheta

"American Idol" Season 8 hopeful Allison Iraheta auditioned in San Francisco with "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" by Aretha Franklin -- a popular artist for audition song choices. The 16-year-old valley girl made it to Hollywood; apparently her singing since she was 5 years old paid off! Allison said she's been watching "Idol" since the beginning and was just waiting to audition. Now that she's made it, we're interested to see where Season 8 takes the young L.A. native.

Allison Iraheta is an animal-loving high school student who's had a taste of singing on television before "Idol" on Spanish-language programs.
