Will Moseley’s Best American Idol Performances

Will Moseley on American Idol 2024

American Idol comes to an end tonight. However, before the show bows out for the season, we want to look at the top performances from the American Idol 2024 Top 3. Let’s start with Will Moseley. The former football star captures your attention the moment you hear his voice. 

It’s rich and feels far beyond his years. Then when he sings his first notes, you know this guy will leave an impression, especially in the country music world. Will isn’t just a great country singer, but his tone and style make rock music also a perfect fit for his voice. 

I picked four performances from Will that show his versatility and nearly spotless vocals.

“Gone For Good” by Will Moseley

Will auditions with “Gone for Good” and it’s such a great original song. It’s heartfelt, showcases his voice, and is very marketable. He keeps his performance simple by just allowing his guitar and voice to shine. It shows his true artistry, not only as a brilliant vocalist but as a songwriter. 

 “Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde” by Travis Tritt

This is where Will’s talent for rock music comes across. “Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde” has this edge that makes whoever sings it sound very cool. It’s bluesy, soulful, and rock. Will has a lot of great musical moments throughout American Idol 2024, but this may be one of his biggest. It’s another performance that showcases his extraordinary vocal tones and how he already feels so polished as an artist, even at such a young age.

“Rolling in the Deep” by Adele

A cool thing about this crop of American Idol contestants is that most of them were able to add their stamp to any song. Will constantly made every cover his song.  He is comfortable in the country lane. Therefore, I was really curious how he would tackle a song so far from his style and genre. I was very pleasantly surprised by how he made this Adele classic a Will Moseley hit. This rock version is the type of cover that makes American Idol such a special show, even over 20 seasons later.

“Sittin’ On The Dock Of The Bay” by Otis Redding

Will’s voice and style make him seem like an artist stripped from another generation and put into the American Idol world. I love the song “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay,” so I am partial to the original. However, there is no denying that Will’s version is so fantastic. It seems effortless, cool, and memorable. 

Honorable Mention: “The Ballad of the Lonesome Cowboy” from Toy Story 4, “Gimme Three Steps” by Lynyrd Skynyrd, and “Born to Be Wild” by Steppenwolf

Will has done so many great American Idol performances, so let us know your favorites.
