Hollie Cavanagh Finds Her ‘Reflection’ During ‘American Idol’ Live Performance
Texan Hollie Cavanagh, who didn’t make it past the audition rounds on Season 10 of ‘American Idol,’ got to make her live performance debut on tonight’s episode (Feb. 29.) It wasn’t her time last year, but she certainly made the most of the chance she has been given. She performed Christina Aguilera‘s ‘Reflection’ for her live debut on Season 11. It’s a big song so does she have the big voice? Oh yeah.
She’s a frontrunner, and she attempted to slay a pretty big dragon, since Xtina is so difficult to emulate due to her range. While there were some slightly off parts, Cavanagh still handled it like a diva-in-training.
Steven Tyler wanted her to let her hair down – literally — but commended her performance as beautiful. He reminded Cavanagh that she is a clear favorite and that she has an impressive range. Jennifer Lopez wants her to let go a little more when she sings.
Given her big voice, we’re thinking America will like Ms. Cavanagh enough to give her a pass through to the next series of live rounds. The potential here is too abundant. ‘Idol’ can’t let her get away … Again!
