Meet Orianthi: Every Girl's New Guitar God

Advertisement - Continue Reading Below

Orianthi exploded on the music scene last year. After her jaw-dropping performance at the 2009 Grammy Awards with Carrie Underwood, Michael Jackson's music director approached her via MySpace to audition for his upcoming dates at the O2 Arena in London. Unfortunately, the tour never developed, but if you saw the film This Is It, you will recognize Orianthi as the killer guitarist in his band.

Believe, and performing for fans. While she began playing guitar at the age of six, being a female guitarist hasn't always been easy.
