Senator-elect Scott Brown is using his new found fame to call on Fox's premiere reality TV show to give his daughter one more chance. Ayla Brown was eliminated as a semi-finalist in American Idol's 2005 season. Judge Simon Cowell called Brown's performance "robotic and empty."

"I would love for him to hear her again," said her father told ABC's Barbara Walters Sunday.

"You're asking him to please give her another chance?" asked Walters.

"I would love it," he said. "There is life after 'Idol.' She respects him greatly, about his critiquing. If you listen to what he says, he was right."
