She’s In There!

Local singer still going in Rolling Stone contest

Thanks to her faithful fans, erstwhile Philadelphian Lelia Broussard has made it into round two of Rolling Stone’s cover contest, as the field was whittled down from 16 singers/bands to eight. (She’s listed as being from L.A. on the contest website, but we saw her way back when she was playing the Tin Angel and Steel City and World Café Live.)

Watch the live reactions of the “Great Eight” semifinalists as they’re told they’re winners here. You can shove Lelia into the next round by voting for her here, and you can watch her recording a new song at an abandoned zoo here. Don’t be put off by the weird monkey-dandruff commercial. C’mon and show the girl a little Philly love!
