Watch Jessica Meuse Sing “Jolene” 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 her second performance of the night is Jessica Meuse, who’s closing out the show with one of the ultimate country classics. After delivering a solid performance earlier in the night and getting stellar praise from the judges, she’s clearly feeling confident as she takes on Dolly Parton’s “Jolene.”
“You did it again,” Harry says. “You stood there, you sang the song. I really felt you were thinking about those lyrics. You delivered it in a strong and convincing way.”
“I thought your vocal was really strong,” adds Jen. “I felt like what we said to you earlier, you were like, Okay, this time, they’re gonna see something in my eyes. I felt that. It was a good job. That voice is magnificent.”
Do you think Jessica deserves to make it through to next week? Watch the video below and sound off in the comments!
