Katharine McPhee joins Willie Spence on American Idol
The Sunday episode of the reality show had two performances each by all the contestants. One being their solo performance and the second being their duet with the singers from the industry.
The Show Stopping Duet was when Katharine McPhee joins Willie Spence for the performance. The judges were left spellbound.
In the words of Luke Bryan, “You do no wrong in my eyes. Part of being a star is making people fall in love with you and, man, I am in love with you. And I am in love with the way you go about being on stage, and the way you go about singing and the place it comes from. It’s amazing.”
You don’t believe us ?
Well have a look yourselves !
The judges couldn’t stop themselves from praising each and every part of this performance.
Richie said,”In our business, you don’t want to be a singer, you want to be a stylist, You have your own lane, and it’s just mesmerizing to watch you.”
Highlights from the performance
It isn’t just the duet performance that caught the attention. The judges asked Willie about his future plans and he said that he wants to win a Grammy in next 5 years.
This literally moved the judges.
Katharine McPhee praised Spence for his singing. She also said that its not just the way you sing that matters. According to her, its also the selection of the song. This is so, because the selection shows how powerful is your singing. She went on to add,“He made ‘The Prayer,’ something that Andrea Bocelli sings, sound like something that Willie would sing,” in his praise.
Undoubtedly, the performance had to be a Show Stopper.
An internet singing sensation and a singing diva, what a combination. There couldn’t have been a better duet for Willie.
The main highlight of American Idol’s Sunday episode is Katharine McPhee joining Willie Spence.
The song that they performed together is called “The Prayer” by Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion. Spence dedicated the 1999 hit to his grandfather, who had recently died, while McPhee dedicated the song to her late father.
We so want Willie Spence to fulfill his dream of winning a Grammy soon.
