Watch CJ Harris Sing “American Woman” in American Idol 2014 Top 6 — April 23, 2014
We’re almost down to a handful of contestants on Season 13 of American Idol, which means the competition is the fiercest it’s been since we started back in January. Instead of the usual duet performances we’ve been seeing over the last few weeks, the hopefuls will be taking on two songs apiece. It’s sure to be an interesting challenge, as the numbers will be strikingly different from each other: one that’s a little bit country and another that’s rock ‘n’ roll. (Yeah, that was a Donny and Marie reference. Don’t judge us. It’s Idol’s fault.)
Taking the stage for his first performance of the night is CJ Harris, singing the classic “American Woman” by The Guess Who. Despite his issues with pitch throughout the competition, the judges continue to praise CJ for his ability to connect with every song. This time around, however, they can’t help but think that he’s a bit out of his element.
“I thought it was a good performance,” says Harry. “I think it was a good song choice. I have to remind you of intonation. I’ve heard you do better, but I know that you felt it. Pretty good.”
“Rock ‘n’ roll isn’t really your thing,” adds J.Lo. “You’re such a bluesy, country guy. But I think you pulled it off. At the beginning, it was shaky, but then it started coming together.”
Do you think CJ deserves to make it through to next week? Watch the video below and sound off in the comments!
