Gabi Carrubba Delivers Maroon 5 Cover on ‘American Idol’ Premiere

American Idol‘ premiered Wednesday with a two-hour audition special, and while the show was packed with the talented — and not so talented — Gabi Carrubba had no trouble standing out with her Maroon 5 cover.

The young songstress delivered an impressive version of the Adam Levine-sung hit ‘Sunday Morning,’ hoping to impress Steven Tyler, who, as Carrubba noticed, makes a weird scrunchy face when he likes a performance. Sure enough, she got a lemon face from the big-mouthed singer, which was a good sign of things to come.

All of the judges agreed that Gabi should move on, telling her she’s “born to do this.” She was quite literally a shoo-in, however — after a quick Google search, PopCrush learned that the talented brunette earned a “Dream Ticket,” meaning a fast-pass to the front of the line, when she tried out for the ‘American Idol’ Experience back in 2009. She was 14 at the time, and therefore too young to be shipped off to Los Angeles.

We’re sure we’ll be seeing much more of Gabi following her Savannah, Ga. audition, as the voting team gave her the signature line, “You’re going to Hollywood!”
