Watch Ben Briley Sing “Soulshine” in American Idol 2014 Rush Week
Much like the earlier parts of this year of American Idol, Season 13 is full of twists and turns that we’ve never seen before. Replacing Vegas Round is the all-new Rush Week, a highly-emotional, intensive round which promises to narrow down our Top 31 to the remaining 13 who will compete for our votes in the finals.
Not all of the contestants will sing for the country, however. As we saw on last night’s stress-inducing episode (February 18), only 10 of the 15 ladies got to take the stage, while the others were sent home brokenhearted. Tonight it’s the guys’ turn to start biting their nails as they wait to see who will get called to the stage.
Next up is 24-year-old Ben Briley, who recently fought for his reality show life against eliminated contestant Neco Starr. Now more than ever, Ben needs to wow the audience with a seriously strong vocal — and he does just that with “Soulshine” by Warren Haynes.
“I think you did a great job, I really do,” says Harry. “I think you’re really interesting and I think you’re a powerful performance.”
Will Ben make it through to the Top 13? The choice is up to you! Vote by calling 1-855-4-IDOL-09 or text 9 to 83676.
