Sonika Vaid American Idol 2016 Season 15 Contestant
In 2013, Sonika auditioned for season 4 of NBC’s The Voice. Advancing past the preliminary rounds, Sonika performed Give Your Heart a Break, by Demi Lovato for her blind audition. However, none of the celebrity judges turned their chair around for her, and Sonika’s The Voice journey was cut short.Over this past summer, Sonika auditioned for the final season of American Idol. At her celebrity audition, she performed Look At Me, by Carrie Underwood, which earned her strong praise from the judges. After she performed, Harry Connick Jr. commented that he thought she was a contender. According to The Idol Pad, Sonika survived Hollywood Week and advanced to the showcase round, where she performed I Surrender, by Celine Dion. Receiving a standing ovation from judge Keith Urban, Sonika was admitted into the top 24.

Overall Thoughts: Originally in the pre-season time, I had blown Sonika off as simply a fodder contestant. However, my opinion of her has completely changed after seeing her audition. For me, Sonika’s voice is the perfect Saturday night spent enjoying people’s company in front of a pleasant fire. There is just something about her tone that is so soothing and pleasant that I can’t help being transfixed by her when she sings. Either way, I am hooked on Sonika now and I am hoping for the best for her this season. I think she has a lot to offer and I hope she sticks around long enough to show us different sides of her talent.
