Tonight American Idol gives us the final night of auditions. For the last five weeks, we’ve seen some really talented contestants. This week should be no different. We’ll see two hours of great performances and the final contestants being selected to go to Hollywood week — which starts next week. We also have one more platinum ticket to see given away, so hopefully, that happens on tonight’s episode. This is bound to be a very exciting episode as we see more great performances, more of the judges’ antics, and more contestants who we can’t wait to see thrive in the competition.
Last week’s American Idol 2023 kind of ended with a cliffhanger. We saw Fire audition with her daughter but not quite make it to the next round. To give her another chance, the judges told her to come back and audition again. We will see that audition tonight. Hopefully, Fire can bring the fire and advance to the next round. No one wants to see an unhappy ending. We’ll also see a famous face help his daughter with her Idol dream. This is reminiscent of Phil Stacey‘s return with his daughter.
Sit back and enjoy the final night of American Idol auditions recap.
Week 6 Auditions
Who will wow the judges one week shy of the start of Hollywood week?
The first up is Kaeyra who sings Cold by Chris Stapleton. The think she’s an artist and that the universe put her here. They all give her yeses. Nate Peck sings “Lightnin’ Strikes Again” by Dokken. The judges get into the rock band-ness of it all. They call him the best rock singer he had but are worried that he can’t connect emotionally. They all give him yeses but Katy Perry warns him to be careful with his song choices.
Mikenley Brown comes in with her dad. She talks about her eating disorder and finding her voice. She sings “Love on the Brain” by Rihanna. Katy says she sees her as top 24. Lionel Richie also said that she did crashing and burning before her Idol journey and now she got that out of the way.
The judges love to create chaos and tonight’s episode is no different. Let’s see what they do this week. then we have a segment on the season having too much talent. We see Elise Kristine, Sarah Mac, and Jayne Elise. They all get yeses from the judges to go to Hollywood week. We get a segment on parents being proud of their children auditioning. There is then a segment on some of the past contestants who made it and came back just for an appearance and to advise the new contestants.
The show ends with a preview of Hollywood week. Apparently, past American Idol contestants come to help the new contestants. Idol will also air Sunday and Monday next week.
