Nick Fradiani channels Maroon 5 and Rod Stewart on American Idol (VIDEO)
Nick Fradiani sang “Maggie May” by Rod Stewart and “Harder to Breathe” by Maroon 5 on Arena Anthem Night on American Idol.
Nick was safe and made it to the Top 5. He’s going on tour!
From our live blog:
Nick says no 29-year-old talks to his father as much as Nick talks to his. Nick’s dad is still gigging, and they offer advice to one another with each call. Nick’s dad never thought he’d be riding his son’s coattails, but a lot has changed since Nick has been on the show. However, their bond hasn’t been one of them. Much like with Jax, I absolutely love Nick’s connection with his dad. They both come across as really cool guys.
Nick sings “Harder To Breathe” by Maroon 5, and I liked this for the most part. It wasn’t a perfect vocal, but I think Nick has a really underrated rock tone to his voice that lends a certain power and grit to songs like this. I’d have left the guitar at home, but I can see why he brought it this time. Dude just looks like a rock star, in that Adam Levine mode.
