Watch Shanon Wilson Sing “I Want You” 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 Boston where the judges meet Shanon Wilson, a former defensive tackle who gives Ryan a run for his money. He may be able to push the 5’9” Seacrest around the waiting room, but can we actually sing?
As a matter of fact, he can. When he opens his mouth to deliver a smooth rendition of “I Want You” by Luke James, the judges are completely blown away by his range.
The other judges don’t even have a chance to give comments before J.Lo holds up a golden ticket. “What? No key change?!” jokes Keith.
What do you think of Shanon’s performance? Will he make it to the Top 31? Read our spoilers here!
