Melinda was voted off of American Idol this week.
But that's beside the point.
Do you remember how timid she was at her audition?

The transformation is striking, isn't it?
In screwing up her courage and saying "It's my story. I'm going to be the hero," Doolittle's Leah has not only left the building, she ain't comin' back.
Because that's what happens when we dare to dream.
