Katy Perry Chooses Her Favorite Idol top 24 contestant.

In the latest episode of “American Idol” Season 22, the spotlight shone brightly on the top 24 contestants. Amidst the intense Disney brand promotion (yes, we heard about Aulani a dozen times!), the talented singers took the stage, leaving their mark with standout performances. But one moment stole the show: Katy Perry’s heartfelt declaration.

In case you somehow missed it the first dozen times Aulani was mentioned, Sunday’s episode brought “Idol” viewers to the Disney resort in Kapolei, Hawaii. Lilo and Stitch, Minnie Mouse and light-up Mickey Mouse ears, oh my.

Abi Carter: A Remarkable Comeback

Abi Carter, who had previously impressed judge Luke Bryan, faced a minor setback during last week’s “Showstoppers” due to bronchitis. However, she made an unforgettable comeback. Abi’s rendition of Hillsong United’s “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)” left Katy Perry in awe. The pop superstar couldn’t contain her admiration.

With tears in her eyes, Katy declared, “I don’t know if I’m allowed to say it, but you’re my favorite.” She praised Abi’s gift and growth, emphasizing how far she’d come since her earlier performances. Abi’s passionate delivery, ethereal voice, and newfound confidence resonated with the judges and viewers alike.

Jayna Elise: A Confident Transformation

Jayna Elise, cut during Hollywood Week in a previous season, returned with renewed determination. Her cover of Demi Lovato’s “Confident” showcased her newfound confidence. Strutting across the stage in high-heeled boots, Jayna delivered a powerful performance. Lionel Richie dubbed her “Take no prisoners Jayna,” impressed by her stage presence and transformation.

She’s a new Jayna now. She’s “take no prisoners Jayna,” Richie declared.

“Fifteen seconds in, you turned into a stage presence killer,” he said.

Will Moseley stole the show with his rendition of an Otis Redding classic?

Like fellow contestant Julia Gagnon, Will has a voice ready for a session in the recording studio. As he performed soul singer Otis Redding’s “(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay,” Will showed off a voice that’s so easy to listen to − one you’d expect to hear while listening to your local country radio station.

Perry chimed in, “Luke and I were just commiserating. We were like, ‘That was the night’s best performance.’ We both agreed it was the most solid performance, like milk, meatloaf, and apple pie. It was so American.”

Kayko and Blake Prohel struggle to keep up with the competition.

It’s not right to be too critical of a singer who dares to perform a deeply personal song about their grief.

The judges seemed to feel the same way after Sam “Kayko” Kelly-Cohen took to the stage with his original song, “How to Live Without You,” which helped him process his mom’s death several years ago (he had taken his last trip to Hawaii with her, he said). His voice occasionally cracked, and it seemed he wasn’t hitting the correct notes.

Bryan said, “Do I want to pick apart every vocal aspect of that performance? No.”

Perry agreed that the performance was more about the emotion than the technicalities: “I wouldn’t be able to sing that song,” she said.

Blake Proehl’s performance of Justin Bieber’s “Anyone” didn’t impress the judges immediately. He started a little nervous and quiet, but his confidence grew as the song continued. However, the performance felt more like a karaoke night than a competition-worthy showcase.

On a positive note, he released the microphone from its prison on the stand and worked the stage with some football-inspired dance moves. Though it perhaps didn’t come off as natural like some of his competitors, it showed a good effort on his part to improve as a performer.

More Excitement Ahead

As the competition heats up, the remaining contestants face more significant cuts. The journey continues, and fans eagerly await the next chapter in this thrilling musical saga.
