Over this past summer, Daniel auditioned for season 14 of American Idol in San Francisco. At the cattle call auditions, of the approximately five thousand people who came out to audition, 30 advanced to the next round, Daniel included. However, before the 30 even went to see the producers, Daniel, along with three others, were singled out and were advanced straight to the celebrity judges audition round. After that, Daniel received a golden ticket, even snapping a cheeky selfie with the judges. In the end, Daniel made it through all the Hollywood rounds, and advanced to the first live show. If you are a fan of Daniel’s look out for him this season.
Overall Thoughts: I started working on spoilers months ago, and when I began, Daniel was the first name I spoiled (with JAX being the second). Anyway, ignoring the fact that he blocked me on twitter after I said I thought he had potential and just asked him for a follow, I still think he has talent. His covers on youtube are classic radio songs, and they showcase a pleasant, albeit shaky, tone. In his pictures with the other contestants, he comes off a little smug, but then again that could just be me looking to far into them. His immaturity could be his downfall, as his tone is still maturing with him, and that could result in him cracking and veering off pitch. Overall, being the youngest contestant in the competition, his top 24 performance will make him or break him. If he goes out and gives a performance like Eben Franckewitz (I just threw up in my mouth remembering that), he will be gone gone gone (see what I did there?), but if he gives a solid performance, he will have an excellent shot of advancing and staying a while. While I might dislike him now, I can not deny his potential this season, however one bad performance and he could be the next Lazaro Arbos who just won’t go home.
- I Want It That Way, by The Backstreet Boys. If he switches the song up and does it acoustically it could be pretty cool.
- Never Say Never, by The Fray. He should do this song only if he can pull off the big notes at the end. If he can pull the notes off, this song could be a real moment for the young singer.
