Watch Malaya Watson Sing “I Am Changing” in American Idol 2014 Top 11 — March 12, 2014
It’s hard to believe that American Idol started almost two months ago, but here we are watching the contestants fight for a spot on the summer tour! On tonight’s episode (March 12), the 11 remainders contenders will show us their true artistry by taking on “Songs From the Cinema.” We’re actually more excited by this theme than we have been in awhile — so much so that we even picked our own choices for them to sing!
Last to take the stage is Malaya Watson, who continues to impress the judges with her strong and emotional performances. At only 16 years old, she manages to deliver performances that are far beyond her years, doing it once again with her rendition “I Am Changing” from Dreamgirls.
“That was the perfect song for you,” says J.Lo. “The perfect way to end the show. That was killer. You have an amazing voice!”
“People on the street will come up to me and say, “This year, there’s no big belter among the group,’” adds Harry. “But you just showed everybody that there is a big belter. Over time, your sound is just gonna get thicker and bigger and it’s going to be a pleasure to watch.”
Do you think Malaya deserves to make it to the Top 10? Sound off in the comments!
