There have been a lot of great American Idol auditions from Detroit this year, but unfortunately we don’t count this one among the best. Although American Idol 2014 audition hopeful Chris Medina has a nice voice and a cute style, he just didn’t blow us away with his performance.
We could be wrong, but we do think Chris may have scored a first on the show in bringing his dog with him to perform. This, of course, prompted American Idol judge Harry Connick Jr. to be his wacky self and kidnap the dog to cuddle while Chris sang.
Unfortunately, Chris Medina’s dog ends up being more memorable in his audition than he does. Not that he’s a bad singer at all, but the song just comes across as kind of flat. Chris doesn’t really connect with the American Idol judges or the camera.
Maybe it’s just nerves (or worrying about Harry having his dog!) and he could have a lot more to offer. The judges certainly seem to think so, since they handed him a Golden Ticket to Hollywood!
