Jax remakes ‘Toxic’ on American Idol Hollywood Week (VIDEO)
Jax (Jackie Cole) sang “Toxic” by Britney Spears on American Idol XIV Season 14 Hollywood Week on Wednesday, February 4, 2015.
What a great way to start Hollywood Week! Jax look and sounds like a superstar already. And that “X” tattoo on her face is… LOL, I don’t know. I was going to say that she’s “committed” to her art, but you know. Girl, you have an “X” tattoo on your face. OK fine, she’s committed to her art. Good for her!
From our live blog:
Jax is concerned because she feels the judges expect a lot from her based on her first audition. Her keyboard is brought out, and she goes into “Toxic” by Britney Spears. It’s very smoky and cool, although this is a situation where the arrangement is so vastly different from the original that I find myself wondering why she even did it, since it’s not really a new version of “Toxic,” it’s just a completely different song that happens to share the same lyrics. Still, I really enjoyed it. J-Lo chats with the judges about how Jax nailed the song without losing the melody. However, they don’t tell Jax, since they won’t be telling any of the contestants how they’ve done in this round.
