Watch Sam Woolf Sing “It’s Time” 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.)
Hitting the stage for his first performance of the night is Sam Woolf, taking on “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons. After weeks of hearing the judges tell him he needs to loosen up and show some personality, he seems to behaving the most fun we’ve ever seen him have — and it doesn’t hurt that his vocals are good too!
“I got goosies on that one!” says J.Lo. “I’ll tell you why. I believed you when you were singing that song. I really felt, with that song, that you came into your own as an artist and really gave a full-blown performance.”
“That’s a great song for you,” adds Harry. “You’re such a sweet, humble, kind guy. And now all you’re doing is adding layers to that. You’re still that same guy, but you’re blossoming. I’m really proud of you.”
Do you think Sam deserves to make it through to next week? Watch the video below and sound off in the comments!
