Last week, the South San High grad sang a duet with Glee's Lea Michele as part of the top 24 duets portion of the contest, which ultimately secured her a spot in the top 14. The top-10 finalists were chosen Monday night.
At its best, American Idol prioritized the contestants over the judges, and this season is doing that while also prioritizing viewers.
American Idol's new voting format will mark the first time in the history of American television that a reality TV competition show will have a simulcast where the home audience can view and vote at the same time. Sussette didn't let that faze her though, as she started singing her original song "I'm A Dreamer". During her April 22 performance, this Q U E E N strolled out in a dramatic, raven-like ensemble combining black feathers, silver fringe and rhinestones fit for the likes of Diana Ross and decimated the audience with her rendition of "The Show Must Go On" by Queen. Lionel tells her it's not just singing and it's the package - performing vocal package and that he doesn't know what's wrong with America. Marcio did not make the Top 10 yet, so he has to sing one more time and he chooses "Jealous". And after Ada's blowout performance of "And I Am Telling You", that was an obvious choice as well. I think you really didn't arrive vocally until the middle of the song. "I was waiting for someone to show up". "This is the best you've ever sounded", Perry added.
Wow, the only one I got right on those three was Jurnee.
Starting April 29 and continuing for two weeks after that, "Idol" will air live at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
Make sure to tune into American Idol on Sunday and Mondays at 8 PM on ABC. "My dad has sacrificed so much for me", she said in her "American Idol" audition introduction. I love her. She's no Jennifer Hudson, but she nailed it.
