One Direction may be making waves in America but it seems that the boys from The Wanted aren’t doing too poorly either.
The British band saw their single ‘Glad You Came’ storm the US singles chart last month, where it peaked at number 3 in the Hot 100 and after having the track covered on hit Fox musical Glee, last night the boys took to the American Idol stage.
This week’s American Idol bottom two was a close call and anyone who watched the show this week, would know that it was a tough choice when it came to picking who should leave the hit talent series this week.
After a few less than wonderful or awe inspiring weeks on the show, this time round, the top nine all shone and really went to town with their recent performances and we have to admit that for the first time in a long time, we wanted the judges to cancel elimination all together for one week at least.
We were surprised when Jessica Sanchez chose to do ‘I Will Always Love You’ on last night’s American Idol show. It wasn’t just any Whitney Houston song….it was THE biggest Whitney Houston song of all time.
Choosing to sing the famous number from her movie ‘The Bodyguard’, was a brave choice, but when we discovered that the singer from San Diego, California would be taking on the track we admit that we were concerned it could spell the end of her time on the hit Fox show.
Scotty McCreery has revealed that he has recorded this year’s American Idol exit song.
Each year show bosses use a different tune to play during the weekly results show, as one contestant is eliminated. The song plays in the background, as the singer’s best bits video is show after Ryan Seacrest reveals they will be leaving the competition.
Ryan Seacrest has revealed that American Idol producers are planning to pay tribute to Whitney Houston in their upcoming episode.
The next installment of the hit Fox talent show will feature pre-recorded audition rounds, as the judges are seen whittling down the list of hopefuls, as they get ever nearer to the live shows, however they are trying to find a way to mark the passing and pay tribute to the musical legacy of Whitney, who died on Saturday.
