American Idol Top 8 Highlights: JLo Predicts Renae, Harmon as Top Two


American Idol Season 15 revealed the top eight contenders after the Top 10 contestants performed for their safety and two went home.

However on Thursday, Jennifer Lopez, had already predicted the top two finalist. According to the 46-year-old singer, she had a “vision” of La’Porsha Renae and Trent Harmon as the top two. She made the statement after she had seen them perform in the fight to reach Top 8.

“You’re amazing, I had a vision of you…at the end,” Lopez said after the performance of the Renae and Harmon.

The fellow judges, Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban, were in absolute agreement with Lopez. “Jen gets 80 percent of the vote and me and Keith – we share 20,” joked Connick.

The same night, teenager from New Jersey, Gianna Isabella and Californian student Olivia Rox were eliminated.

Olivia, 17, had been ill previously and sang Pink’s naughty track Trouble, while 15-year-old Gianna sang If I Ain’t Got You by Alicia Keys. Urban dubbed there voices as “insane” and “gorgeous”, respectively.

Some of the best moments:

The musical guest demi Lovato wore a black leather and mesh top. Lovato’s show-stealing performance of her new single Stone Cold, was brilliant enough to show off her outstanding voice, says TV Guide.

Renae supplied a killer performance of Beyonce’s Halo, which earned her widespread admiration from the panel.

“You’re really the one to beat,” Lopez said to her.

Harmon sang Michael Bolton’s When A man Loves A Woman and was praised for his vocal technique.

Connick admired the 25-year-old singer’s “high extended notes.”

The performances were a component of a Grammy-themed night in the long-running music competition show, says Daily Mail.

Renae, who was described as the American Idol frontrunner to beat, had a fresh and subtle look. She wore a glittering headband and a gown. This change not only supported her voice but also her entire signature, says ET Online.

The show air Thursdays and Fridays on FOX8 Australia.
