Zoanette Johnson “What’s Love Got To Do With It” Not Loved by Judges
In the American Idol 2013 semi-finals, quirky wild child Zoanette Johnson once again gave another theatrical performance with “What’s Love Got To Do With It” by Tina Turner. Unfortunately, this time the American Idol judges weren’t as in love with her over-the-top stage presence. Keith Urban said he loved Zoanette’s fierceness on stage, but he wasn’t sure she did herself very much good with the voters in this performance. He thought that maybe this time it was too over the top with not enough strength in the vocals to carry it off.
Nicki Minaj said she could watch Zoanette on stage all day long, but this song choice just “wasn’t it” this time. For the semi-finals, Zoanette needed more than just to be an entertainer.
Randy Jackson just tells it straight that this performance was not good at all, but he still loves Zoanette even so.
Mariah Carey says she can’t help but watch Zoanette even when she isn’t on stage because it is so hard to keep her eyes off her. This, however, was just not her best performance at all.
