If there’s anything we’ve learned from watching years of American Idol, it’s that Hollywood Week is not to be taken lightly. Grueling rehearsals, clashing personalities, and the possibility of your dreams crashing down around you all lead to a pretty stressful environment for the eager contestants.
That said, some of the hopefuls seem more than ready to take the live Idol stage, including 20-year-old Alex Preston. We first met the singer-songwriter back in Salt Lake City where he wowed the judges with an original song. One listen to his soft voice and advanced guitar playing makes it’s easy to see why he’s already opened for the likes of Gavin DeGraw and Of Monsters and Men.
When Hollywood Week returns on February 12, Alex chooses to sing his original number yet again for his final performance. You can see the delight on Keith Urban’s faces as Alex strums on his guitar, while Jennifer Lopez seems totally caught up in the moment.
Watch the video below for a sneak peek at Alex's Hollywood Week performance, then let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
