Ashley Hess, we don't know why you waited so long to become a superstar! The 27-year-old former dental hygienist had judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan so in awe with her recent American Idol audition that they literally got out of their seats to be closer to her. Hess performed Nora Jones's classic "Don't Know Why" with a piano rendition that obviously got her a ticket to Hollywood, but it was her late journey in the music industry that was even more shocking.
