For rock ‘n roll week on “American Idol,” Kree Harrison took on Janis Joplin with a bluesy, country version of “Piece of My Heart” — she managed to find a great middle ground between Joplin’s rasp and Faith Hill’s pop-country version. The judges loved it.
“I love seeing this bluesy side of you … there’s all sorts of inflections, all sorts of music … this girl can sing,” says Randy. And Mariah gushes, “Incredible. You have an innate ability to choose your songs and I think that really shows a true artist. When it’s time for you to make your record, you’re going to be so involved.”
Nicki adds, “That was magnificent, Miss lady. If I were tuning in and I were on my Idol app, you would get all 50 of my votes right now.”
She definitely got some of our votes. What do you say, “Idol” fans?
