Jack Blocker’s Best American Idol Performances

Jack Blocker on American Idol

It’s funny to think about how Jack Blocker came close to not making it on American Idol (or at least that’s how the show portrayed it). Now he’s going to finish in the Top 3. Jack has given solid performances every week during American Idol 2024. His intense facial expressions may have made Katy Perry wonder if it was too much, but now it’s become a signature part of his performance style. 

Jack doesn’t neatly fit into any music genre, but that’s what makes him a fascinating artist. Let’s explore some of his best performances from American Idol 22.

“Always On My Mind” by Willie Nelson

This may be the best Jack has sounded all season. “Always on My Mind” really works for him because it allows him to showcase different elements of his voice. We hear the softer tones, then some vocal growls, and he even pushes his voice to a range we don’t normally hear from him. Ballads also seem to be the sweet spot for Jack. They fit his Idol persona and match his vocal tones.

“Rainbow” by Kacey Musgraves

I’ll admit I just might really like this song, and that might be why I loved Jack’s rendition of it so much. Even if I didn’t like the song prior to hearing his version, his version would make me a fan of it. He sings it with ease. It helps enhance and highlight the beauty of this simple but powerful song. 

“Space Oddity” by David Bowie

Jack takes on such a powerhouse of a song with “Space Oddity.” It was really a sink-or-swim moment for him because if he failed to deliver this song, many fans would not be happy. Thankfully, Jack doesn’t just deliver the song in his way, but it becomes one of his best performances on American Idol 2024. It made me wish Jack took on more unexpected songs like this one throughout the show because he really can give classics a unique style but still honor them. I appreciate that we got to hear him take on a Bowie classic. 

“Hello” by Lionel Richie

This “Hello” duet is such a highlight moment for Jack and Emmy Russell. They have such different singing styles but it worked well on this duet. They also sound so good on this song. Emmy and Jack should really consider touring together, just for this duet. It was that phenomenal. It was probably the best duet we heard on American Idol 2024.

Honorable Mention: “One & Only” by Adele, “Believe” by Cher, and “Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright” by Bob Dylan.
