American Idol 13 Auditions: Standouts
ok so heres whats up, I'm not going to recap every single audition, there just too many people this year ha. But what i am going to do is go over the contestants that stood out to me.there are alot of talented guitar playing contestants this year and I'm really excited about that but i think we are lacking some big voices this season compared to the last couple of seasons. but hey every year is different and hopefully some great singers blossom in Hollywood week. So here are my favorite auditions this year.
This kid is going to win the hearts of so many Americans trust me. does he have what it takes to win? who knows but he does have what it takes to make it far. in his audition he sounded and played like he was very nervous but his vocals were spot on.
One of my favorite constants so far, savion has a unique look and his sound is very marketable i really like his voice. His original song was pretty awesome too, i think he has his own thing going on i i think that will take him far in the competition.
Another one of my Favorites so far, the moment i saw her i could just tell i was going to like her, you could say her rendition of doing to find another you was a little bit over baked but i love what she did to it. Shes cute, and she stands out from the other guitar players this season.
Probably the best audition of the season, Majesty's voice was so smooth to listen to and her subtle moments really dragged me in more, The only problem i had was her changing her name, its kinda gimmicky to not use your real name in this competition.but i think she is a clear favorite right now.
Keri Lynn Roach
I heard alot of people singing radio active this season but hers was definitely my favorite. i love the cool rasp she brought to the song. her second song was a little bit over the top but it still sounded great. I'm looking forward to what she does next.
Now some people aren't impressed with this kid but for me i think he had the best original song of the season, even had the judges asking, that's an original? he seems like hes ready for this competition and his voice was great. great job.
With so many guitar playing white guys this season its easy to get lost in the mix but to me, John stood out simply because of the power he has in his voice, he doesn't let the guitar overshadow the singing and that's going to be his advantage.
David Oliver Willis
Ahhh this guy, so glad he came back after being unfairly eliminated last season. his audition was freaking great his guitar playing was impressive and he sings so good. I think his ability to take those songs and sing them his was effectively is going to be why he goes far this season.
Haley?? could her little sister no? haha i love this girl because yes she does reminds me of Haley reinhart and her voice is so bluesy its beautiful. her first song was a little to soft but very lovely.
Love this girl! Her original song was cool but what did it for me is the fact that she sounds like stevie nicks who i really like. Idol last year was missing a girl with an edge so i think Jessica will be a good fit in this years bunch. very excited.
Now i didn't really like her last season and I'm not completely sold yet but i think she has come back with more confidence and she might be one of the contestants with the biggest voice this year so i want to see what she does.
