Despite the lowest ratings ever in American Idol history, our favorite competition show is back and better than ever, having blown us away with its premiere on January 15. The combination of amazing contestant talent and chemistry between the judges made it the best episode we’ve seen in awhile... and we’re only getting started!
Tonight promises to be another great night on the show, as the auditions continue in Austin and move on to San Francisco. Will Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Jr. meet the country’s next big superstar in one of these fair cities? Only time will tell!
It’s in Austin where the judges meet 23-year-old country cutie Megan Miller. She bonds with Harry over both being from Louisiana then busts out a soulful albeit somewhat mediocre version of Carrie Underwood’s “Last Night.”
“I’m worried about when your voice is gonna blow out,” says Harry.
“If sounds like it’s a lot of work to get [your voice] out,” adds Keith, “it can be a lot of work for the audience listening.”
However, all the judges agree that she has a nice tone and a solid work ethic, and they send her through to Hollywood!
What do you think of Megan’s performance? Will she make it to the Top 31? Read our spoilers here!
