Though we definitely got a preview of Live Performances during American Idol’s all-new Rush Week, the time we’ve been waiting for has finally arrived. The final 13 contestants will be battling it out in the hopes of becoming the next big superstar — and the fun and craziness all begins tonight (February 26)!
In another effort to distinguish the show from the previous 12 seasons, Idol producers have decided to be a little bit more lenient with their weekly themes. Instead of going with narrow and recycled themes like Motown and Billy Joel, producers have opted for broader topics, like tonight’s theme, “This Is Me.”
Sixth to take the stage is MK Nobilette, the 20-year-old “calm storm” from San Francisco, California. After wowing the judges with her emotional performance during Rush Week, MK hopes to show a different side of herself with “Satisfaction” by Allen Stone.
Though MK doesn’t employ some of the over-the-top antics of her fellow contestants, the judges can’t help but keep coming back for more. “First of all, I love the way you look,” says Keith. “The whole thing is just working. You’re getting confidence onstage, [but] it’s not all there yet. But your voice never fails you. The voice is there the whole way.”
Do you think MK deserves to make it to the Top 12? Sound off in the comments!
