Watch Majesty Rose Sing “Shake It Out” in American Idol 2014 Top 9 — March 26, 2014
Well, we made it AmericanIdol fans. We’ve officially arrived at the single digits for Season 13! Last week, we watched as the country said goodbye to MK Nobilette after she failed to overcome stage fright and deliver superstar performances. It was a hard hit, that’s for sure — not just because MK was talented, but because she made history as the show’s first openly gay contestant ever.
While it was tough to see her go, the show must go on! Tonight (March 26), the remaining 9 contenders will perform songs to the theme of “I’m With the Band.” They’ve been tasked with taking on tunes by rock royalty, as the live Idol band plays in the background.
Next to take the stage is Majesty Rose, who’s found herself in the bottom three the last two weeks. Now more than ever, she really needs to deliver a stellar performance to prove she’s worth keeping around, so she decides to take on “Shake It Out” by Florence + The Machine. While it’s undeniably difficult to follow in the footsteps of such a powerhouse vocalist like Florence Welch, Majesty gives one of the best performances we’ve seen from her in weeks.
“That’s the Majesty that I love!” says J.Lo. “Vocally it was a little bit all over the place, but performance-wise it was a 10. I felt you were comfortable. I felt you in control of the whole entire stage, audience, band, everything. It’s felt so good!”
Do you think Majesty deserves to make it to the Top 8? Sound off in the comments!
