One of the "American Idol" contestants who earned a Golden Ticket auditioning in Denver never made it to Hollywood. The Seattle Times reports that Danelle Hayes was told she couldn't go to Hollywood because she's on probation and producers would have had to get permission for her to leave the state. Hayes is on probation for marijuna possession and driving with a suspended license.

She had impressed Simon and Kara with her performance of "I'm the only One."
