Ex-AI Auditioner Got Killed by a Car

July 26, 2009

First and foremost, I’d like to apologize for not regularly posting lately. There have been a lot in my hands these past view days. Mostly work though. And I am normally tired at night after work so I just opt to sleep earlier than usual.

Anyhow, I was checking my mail just now and one interesting headline caught my attention. It’s about AI’s former auditioner named Alexis Cohen who apparently got killed in a car accident. Cohen was one of the rejects featured in the said reality show 2 years in a row, Seasons 7 and 8 that is. I guess, it was her extreme hatred to Simon Cowell that made her famous. Well, here is the complete article of this tragic incident as reported via yahoo news:

SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. – Authorities say a 25-year-old former two-time “American Idol” contestant has been struck and killed by a car in a New Jersey shore town.

The Asbury Park Press reports that Alexis Cohen, of Allentown, Pa., was killed early Saturday in Seaside Heights.

Deputy Chief Michael Mohel of the Ocean County Prosecutors Office says an autopsy indicated she suffered chest, head and abdominal injuries. Mohel says investigators are seeking more information about the collision.

Cohen auditioned in Philadelphia for the popular Fox singing competition in August 2007, and the episode was aired in January 2008. She tried out again during the show’s eighth season.

A video of her angry rant after being rejected by judges went viral on the Internet.

For those who are not AI followers, here is Cohen’s first AI audition in Season 7:
