American Idol is a television singing competition series created by Simon Fuller and produced by Fremantle North America and 19 Entertainment. American Idol’s 19th season began on February 14, 2021. The 19th season is overseen by the same jury, which includes Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie. Talking about the same, here’s a look at some of the songs that were a part of the American Idol 2021 premiere.
Alanis Sophia, a 19-year-old Florida college student, started off the evening with a powerful solo performance of Sia’s “Alive,” which Katy Perry went on to call her performance beautiful. Sophia then performed Shallow by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper with co-singer Jimmie Allen, which the judges also praised but noted that she appeared nervous. The contestant also got a standing ovation for her performance. Watch.
Contestant Wyatt Pike keeps garnering praises for his performances each week from the judges. Pike paired with Ben Rector for a rendition of the much-acclaimed song Brand New. Luke Bryan got emotional as he watched Pike perform with Ben Rector and he also lauded his performance. Watch the video below.
