We’re almost a bit afraid for American Idol 2013 finalist Kree Harrison this week, as no one can do so well for so long in this competition, can they? Even last week, fighting back the tears from the pain of a pinched nerve, she astounded the judges with a stellar rendition of “Piece Of My Heart”. Only Keith Urban picked up on the fact that something may have been a bit off, while Mariah Carey said it was likely her favorite performance by Kree to date.
Some people struggle to maintain the lead on American Idol due to the stress and grueling schedules, but we believe Kree has it in her to bring her A-game for every performance. As Jimmy Iovine said of this Nashville-based demo singer weeks ago, Kree has an innate ability to pick songs that are absolutely perfect for her, and we think that’s what will give her the edge against the other five singers left in the competition.
While people like Burnell Taylor have been able to shine when the themes have been their wheelhouse but suffer when they stray too far outside of this, Kree’s talent seems to know no bounds.
Watch Kree Harrison on the Top 6 American Idol performances show Wednesday night and let us know if you think she’s the girl to beat on Season 12!
