Watch Dexter Roberts Sing “One Mississippi” in American Idol 2014 Top 8 — April 2, 2014
Can you believe that in just over a month we'll have ourselves a winner for Season 13 of American Idol? We can't either, but you know what they say: Time flies when you’re having fun! After saying goodbye to the adorable Majesty Rose last week, we’re one step closer to meeting our new champion. Who will walk away with the crown? We have our guess, but only time will truly tell!
Tonight (April 2), the eight remaining hopefuls go head-to-head in hopes of winning America’s votes. The singers really have the chance to show how much they’ve grown throughout the competition, as they’ve been tasked with singing the songs they first performed in their auditions.
Fifth to take the stage is Dexter Roberts, who wowed the judges back in Salt Lake City with his authentic and emotional rendition of “One Mississippi.” Dexter’s singing this Brett Eldredge number once again, but will he be able to impress them just as much as he did the first time? As a matter of fact, it’s even better!
“You sat on that stool and you sang the crap out of that song,” says Harry following the performance. “It was great to hear you sing. I think you really needed that this week. It was the perfect song for you. You sang it beautifully. I was touched by it. You did a fantastic job.”
Do you think Dexter deserves to make it to the Top 7? Watch the video below and sound off in the comments!
