Watch MK Nobilette Sing “Perfect” in American Idol 2014 Top 10 — March 19, 2014
Wednesday has arrived yet again and that can only mean one thing. It’s time to be treated to another two-hour helping of American Idol! Last week, we watched as the country voted for the 10 contestants that will be hitting the road this summer on the Idol tour. Unfortunately, we also had to say goodbye to Ben Briley, and we’re sure to miss all the adorable things he says about his wife.
But this is reality television and the show must go on! Tonight (March 19), the remaining 10 contenders will perform songs from the Billboard Top 10. They’ve been tasked with choosing a song from 2010 to the present, which means we’ll really get to see how they handle popular, contemporary music. (It is what they’ll be singing if they win the competition, after all!)
First to take the stage is MK Nobilette, who really needs to impress the country to stay in the competition. She decides to take on “Perfect” by Pink, telling Ryan Seacrest that it’s a message to her fans about staying true to who they are.
Unfortunately, despite the powerful meaning behind her choice, the performance doesn’t go over as planned.
“I did not think that was one of your stronger performances,” says Harry. “It has nothing to do with the fact that the lyrics got off. I heard you talking about what you meant with the feeling of the song, but I didn’t really feel that conveyed. I think you have a really beautiful voice, I think you would make an incredible record. But what kind of show would you put together?
Do you think MK deserves to make it to the Top 9? Sound off in the comments!
