American Idol 14 Spoilers
New video from last week’s Nashville Judges Round auditions offers fans a behind the scenes look at American Idol 14.
In this first video, keep an eye out for Top 30 contestant, Marrialle Sellars and Hollywood hopeful, Savion Wright. Both were season 13 favorites who didn’t make it to the live shows.
Marrialle started off with a strong audition and lots of producer pimping, but lost steam beginning in Hollywood. She made the Top 30, but was in the group of 10 singers who were cut before they were able to sing live for America. ETA: Correction. She did sing–Top 30 brought us a pitchy and awkward performance of Katy Perry’s “Roar.”
Savion, a talented singer/songwriter, was inexplicably cut before the Top 30. Some speculated that producers felt the publicity surrounding the murder of his brother, Alfred, would distract him from the competition.
If the video is any indication, it looks like both, once again, earned a golden ticket to Hollywood!
Plus, supervising producer, Patrick Lynn, takes us on a tour of “The Chamber” and explains the “steadicam run.”
In this next clip, watch as judges, Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. dish on this year’s talent. Also, excited hopefuls reveal their favorite Idols of all time. Scotty McCreery, Kelly Clarkson, Phillip Phillips and Fantasia are all namechecked.
