American Idol 2016 Audition – Mackenzie Bourg – Judges Song Medley – VIDEO

Mackenzie Bourg – Judges song medley – We’ve seen Mackenzie in a preview. He sings a medley of songs by the judges, which is a cute gimmick. He reminds me of Kris Allen, but not nearly as dynamic. Mackenzie’s voice is on the soft side. I could use a little more energy here, but he’s a good arranger and musician. I’ll reserve judgement until I see more. The songs are Stupid Boy” by Keith Urban, followed by Harry Connick Jr.’s “Come By Me” and “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” by Jennifer Lopez. Oooh. This goes on longer than the preview. He ends with “Memories of Us” by Keith. He thought his “quiet thing” was interesting to watch. Jlo thought it was “pleasant.” Keith joked that he liked the first song and the last song. But what were those two songs in the middle? Heh. Mackenzie auditioned for The Voice season 3. He sang “Pumped Up Kicks” to land on Team Cee Lo Green. He was eliminated in the Playoff round by public vote.  – 3 yeses
