Joey Cook sings ‘King of Spain’ on American Idol XIV (VIDEO)
Joey Cook sang ‘King of Spain’ by The Tallest Man On Earth on American Idol XIV Season 14 in Kansas City on Wednesday, January 14, 2015.
I think I’m in love. Seriously, I can’t get enough of Joey Cook, who’s utterly adorable and incredibly unique. She sounds a little bit like Karen O, with a hint of Regina Spektor. Her “squeeze box” just adds so much character to this performance that I’m all-in with her.
That said, the judges absolutely MUST stop talking during these frigging auditions. It’s outrageously disrespectful, even if they’re chatting positivity about the artist auditioning. It’s just rude. I couldn’t have imagined talking during this because it would have meant not being transfixed. I LOVE her, especially this version of “The Tallest Man on Earth” by King of Spain.
Watch the video here:
And the judges love her too, as Keith says she is his favorite voice of the day, while J-Lo loves her uniqueness. However, Harry warns against coming across as too novelty. But it’s still three yeses for her. She cries when getting hugged by her mom.
I’m rooting for her 100%. I worry whether or not she’ll fall apart in Hollywood, since this sort of competition doesn’t seem to privilege an artist like her.
JOEY COOK is going to Hollywood!
