'American Idol' Recap: Who Made It To The Top 14?

'American Idol' Recap: Who Made It To The Top 14?

He is one of my favorites in this competition.

Like Colbie Caillat, Bebe Rexha also once auditioned for American Idol.

Sunday's episode spotlights the 12 singers who were not featured on the show last Sunday. Her selection was "Flashlight" by Jessie J, and all Katy Perry could say was "Wow" after the performance that was so "effortless".

Ada Vox sang "Defying Gravity" with Lea Michele, and the pair received a standing ovation from the judging panel for their duet.

"A star is born". Luke Bryan admitted that "you didn't have me till tonight", and Katy teased, "stay off my sauce", referring to Alyssa's name. Proving himself/herself as a total performer, Vox moved Katy Perry to start flinging her coat, and asserting "you came here to win". This figure is the lowest rating in "American Idol" history.


Katy explained that Maddie and Colbie complemented each other extremely well onstage and showed that they have a attractive relationship. Lionel even complimented how "relaxed" and "comfortable" she appeared on stage. (Side note: Toni Braxton was initially to be Marcio's duet partner, but she bailed because she was under the weather.) During the first half of their time on stage, Allen makes the song his own, while Marcio just kind of mimics Marvin Gaye's vocals. All three judges then spontaneously walked over to a crying Marcio and gave him a group hug. Lionel called it "a spiritual moment", saying he has a "magic shine" about him, and Luke explained the contestant's "horsepower" is really starting to kick in.

"You've arrived. You're meant to be here and you know it now!" Luke Bryan told Shannon that "you always deliver", and Katy told her to "play a little chess" looking at other singers and finding out what she could offer that no one else does.

Maddie sang a duet with Colbie Caillat. Regardless, the contestant took another step in the right direction. Katy tells the teenager that she finally found her center. Shannon is the definite dark horse in this competition if she makes it to the next round. I think Garrett is an underdog in this competition so let's see if he can pull it out.

"I felt you", said Bryan, while Richie said, "You are proving to us all that you want it that badly". She has made the Top 24.
