Watch Malaya Watson Sing “Ain’t No Way” in American Idol 2014 Top 8 — April 2, 2014
Can you believe that in just over a month we'll have ourselves a winner for Season 13 of American Idol? We can't either, but you know what they say: Time flies when you’re having fun! After saying goodbye to the adorable Majesty Rose last week, we’re one step closer to meeting our new champion. Who will walk away with the crown? We have our guess, but only time will truly tell!
Tonight (April 2), the eight remaining hopefuls go head-to-head in hopes of winning America’s votes. The singers really have the chance to show how much they’ve grown throughout the competition, as they’ve been tasked with singing the songs they first performed in their auditions.
Fourth to take the stage is Malaya Watson, who only not wowed the judges with her age-defying performance of “Ain’t No Way” back in Detroit, but also won them over with her fun and quirky personality. Malaya’s singing this Aretha Franklin classic once again, but will she be able to impress them just as much as she did the first time? You better believe it!
“You had this voice right from day one, but you just needed to be with it,” says Keith following her performance. “That was so with it tonight. That was in such good control. It was fantastic!”
“You’re blossoming into this star right before our eyes,” adds J.Lo. “It’s a beautiful thing to see. You’re going to be such a huge star. You’re going to run away with this competition.”
Do you think Malaya deserves to make it to the Top 7? Watch the video below and sound off in the comments!
