Among the last few contestants on American Idol are Quentin Alexander and Tyanna Jones. Both are looking to make their mark on the Idol franchise so it’s worth looking back at who inspired them to pursue the American Idol dream.
Speaking with FOX Audio Central, Quentin reflects on that big moment in Idol each season when the final two deliver their last performance vying for the audience’s support:
“My absolute favorite Idol memory is the very first season when Kelly and Justin sang their, I think the coronation song. They both sang the same song and I didn’t, when I was that age I didn’t really understand what was going on. I was like, “Okay, wait, why are they doing the same thing?” But then, you know, you realize that it’s basically the moment to find out who’s going to be the American Idol.
So I think that moment and the moments of finding out the other past 13 seasons, which is my favorite. I love just watching the emotion on their faces. You know, they’re trying to figure out what they’re thinking, if they think they’re going to get it or if they think the guy standing next to them’s going to get it. Like it’s, the whole emotion thing is really intense.”
Quentin Alexander looks back at American Idol history:
As for Tyanna Jones, her favorite Idol memory was the audition by Fantasia who arrived late but was allowed to audition and the rest is history for her. It’s an interesting moment considering Tyanna had the last audition of this season for Idol.
“I would say Fantasia’s audition The way that it happened, it wasn’t just, you know, she got to go in and do dah, dah, dah, dah, dah.
It was, she had to ask, and then someone went to someone else and said, “Well, there’s this person that came a little bit later. Can she audition?” And they let her, and she got through, and won. So that was really cool”
