Shout out to Sydney Sherwood for representing the Jersey Shore.

This Marlboro resident auditioned for ABC's American Idol and this little super star is now going to Hollywood to continue on for the win!

Sherwood announced on her Instagram yesterday that she received a "golden ticket" during auditions but unfortunately her segment won't be aired. An official rep for the American Idol reboot, however, did confirm her story!

But I hope she is ready because Hollywood week officially begins at 8:00 PM on Sunday, March 24th. Yikes!

“Thank you for all your prayers, wishing me good luck, and just all your love that you’ve been sending since when I first tried out for the show,” posted Sherwood.

Turns out that Sherwood is no stranger to the music industry and just recently released a record at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park from her new EP "Beauty from Ashes."

Good luck Sherwood; we are rooting for you!
