Watch Malcolm Allen Sing “Superstition” in the American Idol 2014 Premiere (VIDEO)
It’s been a long, hard hiatus since Candice Glover was crowned the winner of American IdolSeason 12. Thankfully, our favorite music competition returned tonight (January 15), and we met a whole new crop of hopefuls looking to become the country’s next big superstar!
It’s in Austin where the judges meet Malcolm Allen, a 21-year-old deli grocer who laments his inability to play the acoustic guitar. Thankfully, he’s got plenty of other skills on his hands. Though it’s a bold move for any singer, Malcolm takes on Stevie Wonder’s classic song “Superstition,” much to the judges’ delight.
“It’s so natural for you, I want to throw this pen at you!” jokes J.Lo. “I think your voice is something special. I’m gonna say yes, yes... double, triple yes today!”
“Well, I guess we don’t need to answer,” says Keith.
What do you think of Malcolm’s performance? Will he make it to the Top 31? Read our spoilers here!
