Shannon Berthiaume sings ‘House of the Rising Sun’ on American Idol XIV (VIDEO)

Shannon Berthiaume sang ‘House of the Rising Sun’ on American Idol XIV Season 14 in Minneapolis, MN on Wednesday, January 21, 2015.

Shannon is only 17 and she has a lot of star power on her.

From our live blog:

Shannon talks about how she’s never really sang in front of people before, noting that she almost did the school talent show, but she was afraid she’d get torn apart. She seems shy, but not in a way that should inhibit her ability to perform, if that makes any sense.

Case in point, she RIPS into “House of the Rising Sun,” delivering a very raw, passionate performance. She just has no control over her voice whatsoever, but in a way that’s really compelling to listen to. She overdoes it in places, and she nearly shouts herself hoarse, but I actually like her tone a lot.
