But maybe Lilly was just too cool for "Idol." She said in a post-elimination interview with USA Today: "I feel like my fanbase wasn't there....I think my voting demographic is more of the underground scene, who don't even own a TV. They were probably all out riding their bikes and or doing something more productive than watching TV, let alone 'American Idol.'"Varlet, the awesome band she formed in 2005 with her brother David, and as I listen to their sweet indie/folktronica sound--think Corinne Bailey Rae, Joanna Newsom, Feist, Regina Spektor, Sia, that sort of thing--I actually get angry, because it's even more apparent to me now how much Lilly was robbed on "Idol."
Check out Lilly's music below, and let's hope her fanbase finally finds her.
