"You've shown us so many different shades of you", said Perry, adding that being able to sing in Spanish is something that gives him an edge in the competition.
Catie Turner - Her voice is one of my faves. With dramatic cuts hanging over all their heads, the talents know that these short moments on stage revolve around much more than a lovely voice from the person standing in the "American Idol" oval.
The other performers featured on Sunday's episode of American Idol include Trevor McBane with "Way Down We Go" by Kaleo, Jonny Brenns with "Georgia" by Vance Joy, Kay Kay with "Love on the Brain" by Rihanna, Brandon Diaz with "Hello" by Lionel Richie, Gabby Barrett with "My Church" by Maren Morris, and Cade Foehner with "All Along the Watchtower" by Jimi Hendrix. "You have arrived", Katy told Dominique.
"I feel like it's turned out okay for them", Katy interjected. By the way, the song choice was Catie's dad's idea. Since the song is about proposing to a daughter, Dennis sang to his baby girl being held by his wife, making for a very touching connection.
Saucy Venezuelan singer, Michelle Sussett, got a taste of home, courtesy of a food truck stop secured by Bobby Bones. "If anything, you've grown leaps and bounds since we first met you". The soulful performance was so good it made "Katy Perry pass out", according to the show's website. It was a unique performance for him, and it worked, showcasing his versatility. Judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan eliminated 5 of them based on the both performances. American Idol spoilers detail that Jonny Brenns, Marcio Donaldson, and Michael Woodard round out the group, and the site American Idol Net has revealed the same list of finalist names.
Michael J. Woodard and Train's Pat Monahan teamed up to sing Train's hit "Angel in Blue Jeans". "You're a world-class singer", Bryan said. Katy asked if this brand of rock 'n roll is allowed on ABC before noting that "my minister parents" would shield her from such sensuality. The swoonworthy Cade Foehner is up next with Bishop Briggs. He took a risk by not following Bones' advice, and it paid off.
While she exhibited on-stage poise, Spring was all fangirl meeting Nettles and Kristian Bush and earned high marks from the duo, with Nettles saying, "She's a young kid with control of her instrument".
