"Two days before my audition, the weather changed in Nashville and I completely lost my voice," she said. "I got super sick and I had to get a steroid shot, my voice was gone."

She says the judges, including Katy Perry and Luke Bryan, talked about her National Anthem performance and found it on YouTube.

Cole added that the YouTube video saved her audition.

On Monday, you can find out if she makes it to Hollywood at 7 p.m. on ABC13.
