This is the final season of American Idol and Caroline was thrilled to be a part of it. She states, "The experience was incredible. It's definitely not for the faint of heart though! It was wild being able to participate in a show that I’ve been watching since I was 12. The best part of the experience was the people I met. They were from all over the country, and came from every background. We all stay in touch on Facebook. My closest friends live across the country though. My roommate was from California and another close friend is from Utah!"
Caroline is just starting her career and has plans to perform in New York City. She believes that having the platform of performing on television makes people perk up and pay attention to your music. Speaking on the power of American Idol, she says, "It brings on a lot of new fans who are excited to follow your journey from small town open mics to national television." Regarding this being the final American Idol season, she said she will really miss it as it "was the first show that really gave singers the chance to be in the big league. "
Caroline is the niece of Emmy-award winning actress Martha Byrne.
