Adam Lasher, Garrett Miles and Trevor Douglas Perform on American Idol XIV (VIDEO)
American Idol XIV is heating up as Hollywood Week is underway! The first day of Hollywood Week for Season 14 featured some stellar performances, primarily from this solid trio of WGWGs, as Adam Lasher, Garrett Miles and Trevor Douglas were among the performers laying it all on the line for the judges.
–ADAM LASHER sings an absolutely badass rendition of “Wicked Game” by Chris Isak. THIS is how you reinterpret a song. You change it up just enough that it feels like a wholly new, original version, but you leave enough of the original melody in there that it’s recognizable. I loved this, and find it to be one of the best of the night so far.
Next, GARRETT MILES gets up to perform, and his father accompanies him to the stage as the other contestants get on their feet for him. Seriously, dude is popular among his fellow contestants, people who should probably feel pretty threatened by him. It speaks volumes of how likable the guy is. He sings “To Make You Feel My Love,” and gets a standing ovation from his fellow contestants for it. I thought the vocal was mostly solid, if a bit unspectacular. But what’s impressive is something that Harry quickly picks up on, which is that he has no vibrato. He’s got a strong, confident tone.
Lastly, TREVOR DOUGLAS belts out Ed Sheeran’s “I See Fire” in a cappella for the first couple moments. When he launches into the guitar portion, he gets even more confident, showing some really strong artistry in the sorts of things he does with his guitar. The crowd loves him, and so do the judges. However, Trevor doesn’t know that, and he expresses doubt over whether or not he’ll go through. But how he could possibly get cut after that is beyond me.
Thankfully, all three singers advanced to the next phase of Hollywood Week. But what do you think of these three artists? Check out the full video below:
