American Idol 12- Contestant Preview #14- Cortez Shaw

Cortez is a Top 40 contestant from last year. He had some screentime (his audition is below). As you can probably tell from the videos, he’s a little cocky. The question is, will he come off as too cocky to really do well in the team (like Todrick). He’s talented, and he’s current. The competition would benefit from him being in, because he’s actually a radio ready singer, as opposed to an old school gospel type like Joshua Ledet.


Someone Like You (His audition last year)


I Will Always Love You


We Are Never Getting Back Together
