The American Idol judges’ reactions to her performance were a little more reserved than some of the others, but they’re giving nothing but praise this season so far, so Gabby should be sitting pretty during the results Monday night.
“I have never in my life watched a person get to the end of a song and blow me away,” Lionel Richie said. “First of all you have an amazing attitude. I would say give us a little bit more of your personality half way through. Don’t [wait] until the end.”
Katy Perry agreed with Lionel and added: “That was super cool and then at the end it went from zero to a hundred real quick. That was great.”
Luke Bryan thinks Gabby has the it factor they’re looking for. “I’m happy because we’re looking for people that have the sine and the sparkle,” he said. “You have the shine, you have the sparkle.”
