We heard a bit of American Idol 2016 finalist MacKenzie Bourg‘s original song “Roses” during Hollywood Week. In the Top 14 performances round, we finally got to hear a lot more of his beautiful musical creation. MacKenzie definately earned the ‘sweet spot’ of going last for the night, and we think he should also earn a place in the American Idol Top 10!
If the wild screaming of the crowd wasn’t enough of an indication that MacKenzie rocked the performance, the looks on the American Idol judges’ faces certainly proved it! Keith Urban couldn’t help calling MacKenzie “dude” in a totally approving kind of way, and said that is “such a great song, it really is.” And he could barely even speak over the cheering of the crowd! Keith also said that MacKenzie sang great and played great, and really, there was nothing else to be said.
