Beautiful Brittany Kerr, who is a dancer for the Charlotte Bobcats, had no idea what a frenzy her American Idol audition would cause.
Kerr, a stunning NBA dancer, model and singing hopeful who resembles former Idol contest Carrie Underwood, caused quite the stir after her American Idol audition aired last week on FOX. A massive traffic influx of thousands of fans searching for her photos crashed Kerr's manager's Web site.
A representative for management agency Enkamp said that a sudden upsurge of traffic after Brittany Kerr's performance on Idol on Wednesday overwhelmed servers and crashed the site. The dancer became an overnight Internet sensation.
Photographer Jim Merrill has worked with the 24-year-old Charlotte Bobcats dancer on many photo shoots, and he told TMZ that traffic skyrocketed as people searched for photos of Kerr (particularly the bikini shots). Merrill said that he typically sees 5,000 hits per month and Kerr has boosted that number up to 20,000 already since last week.
Brittany Kerr's singing talents and good looks earned her a ticket to Hollywood. Kerr sang Joss Stone's Spoiled. When she walked through the door, even before stretching her vocal chords, judge Steven Tyler said I say yes!
After her debut on American Idol, the beauty receieved a gaggle of new Twitter followers. She tweeted: Wow!!! Look at all these new followers!! So thankful:) thanks guys for being supportive!!! Had a blast! Xoxo. She is up to over 2,000 followers already.
Kerr also uses Twitter to voice thanks for her blessings. Goodnight tweetybirds:) remember.. When you wake up.. Thank the lord for the blessing of life-what a gift he's given us:) xoxo she posted on Friday. Her bio includes a Bible verse, Philippians 4:13.
This Charlotte, NC, native is more than just a pretty face. The Charlotte Bobcats dancer was a human environmental science graduate who enjoys singing, decorating and photography, according to her bio on the Lady Cats Web site.
She listed her top three ambitions: skydiving, singing the national anthem at sports events and visiting an elephant rescue sanctuary in South Africa.
