Skylie Thompson: The 411


We sat down with Talent Show finalist Skylie Thompson to learn all about her. Scroll down for the 411!

How did you find out you were going to be a Talent Show contestant?

I sent in an audition video on Instagram. I never thought I’d actually make it! My mom got the email saying I made it to the top twelve, so she had my dad secretly film me while they gave me the news! I was so excited! 

What was your favorite part about filming the Talent Show?

The people who were apart of it! Everyone was seriously so nice and we are all such good friends now!

You have a very unique name, do you know how your parents came up with it?

My dad had a genetics project in high school where he had to name an imaginary child and he came up with Skylie. He loved it and remembered it when I was born.

How long have you been making music? When did you know it was something you wanted to pursue professionally?

I’ve always loved to perform! I feel like singing has always been something I knew I was gonna do deep down! 

Who is someone from history that you look up to?

Jesus! Is that an acceptable answer? I don’t know, but I will always strive to be positive and do good things!

Where do you see yourself in ten years?

A lot can happen in a week! Imagine what can happen in ten years!?! Honestly I hope to have a great life and if I happen to be singing at the BillBoard Music Awards in ten years, then hey, I’m all for it!

When you’re not singing or working, what’s your favorite thing to do?

Eating and watching TV. I could watch TV all day. LOL! Basketball is one of my favorite things to do that, ya know, actually includes moving.

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?

Australia. I’ve never been there, but it’s on my bucket list! It’s beautiful, they have cool accents, and I love Bindi Irwin!! 

What’s your favorite TV show?

Hmmm, probably Big Brother! My all time favorite is Wizards of Waverly Place though!

Of all the videos you’ve posted on YouTube, do you have a favorite?

I honestly enjoy them all. When I started making youtube videos, I was seriously like the only one who watched them! I just love looking back at good times! 

If you could be anyone for one day, who would it be and why?

I would love to be Taylor Swift! I’ve loved her since day one and it’s a dream of mine to rock the stage like she does!

What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?

God! If I didn’t follow him, my life would probably be pretty messy!

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

Chocolate, but if we are getting fancy with it, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

What’s your favorite ride at Disneyland/Disney World?

My favorite ride at Disney World is The Yeti!! 


Before we wrap up, can you tell us one last fun fact?

I have never watched a scary movie!
