American Idol 2014: Watch Kristen O’Connor Sing “Unconditionally” For a Season 13 Wildcard Spot
We’ve made it through audition cities, Hollywood Round, and the all-new Rush Week — now the moment we’ve been waiting for has finally arrived! It’s time to learn which of the American IdolSeason 13 contestants have earned themselves a place in the finals!
But those aren’t the only hopefuls that will go on to sing for America’s vote. The judges have hand-selected five of the remaining 10 contenders to sing for a shot at one of three wildcard spots.
Last to take the stage is 24-year-old Kristen O’Connor, who wowed the judges with her “special tone” earlier this week. Opting to sing “Unconditionally” by Katy Perry, Kristen gets off to a pretty shaky start. Her nerves are undeniable, but she manages to pull it together by the end.
“That was a good performance of that song,” says Keith. “But one of the things that I find is that when you come out and the adrenaline kicks in, everything goes up a little bit and you can actually sing it a little bit higher. You would have found it easier to sing had that song been just a touch higher. You were struggling to keep it where it was.”
Do you think Kristen deserves one of the wildcard spots?
