We’ve reached the final round of American IdolHollywood Week, and let’s just say the process has been a doozy! Grueling rehearsals, clashing personalities, and mounting illnesses have all taken their toll on the contestants — not to mention the possibility of their dreams coming crashing down around them.
That said, some of the hopefuls seem more than ready to compete for the semi-finals, including 20-year-old MK Nobilette. Though MK (or Emkay, depending on who you ask) doesn’t have the kind of over-the-top personality like a lot of the other contestants, she delivers a haunting and gorgeous rendition of Ed Sheeran’s “A Team.”
“There’s something about the way she delivers the song that really gives me goose bumps,” says J.Lo. “She’s like a quiet storm.”
MK clearly nailed her performance, but was it enough to outshine her more gregarious competitors? After taking the long and nerve-racking ride on the elevator, MK takes a seat in front of the judges to learn her fate.
“I think with you it’s kind of difficult because we all fell in love with your voice and your style,” says J.Lo. “But you’re not the typical American Idol. [That said], the world is changing and we think you could be an American Idol.”
And with that, MK has made it through to the Top 30!
