Watch Alex Preston Sing “Always On My Mind” 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 second performance of the night is Alex Preston, with Willie Nelson’s “Always On My Mind.” After delivering an uncharacteristically upbeat performance earlier in the show, Alex is returning to the slow and thoughtful style that’s won us over time and time again.
“I think this is a good night,” says Harry. “I feel very lucky to have heard you do that tonight. I think it was exactly what it should have been. You sang it beautifully. You’re an artist and I admire that. I think you did a terrific job.”
“It’s hard to go up there and hit the bullseye every time,” adds J.Lo. “But for me, it was really beautiful. Right here was the perfect balance of Alex and a great song that everybody loves.”
