Olivia Rox Earns Standing Ovation With ‘Confident’ on American Idol 2016 (VIDEO)
Olivia Rox earned a standing ovation from Keith Urban with her performance of “Confident” by Demi Lovato on the American Idol 2016 Top 24 Semi-Final #2 on Wednesday, February 17, 2016!
This is freaking outstanding. Olivia delivers an awesome, confident (no pun intended) rock vocal that delivered the attitude of the song despite the fact that Olivia is as cute as a button. My only objection was that this could use a little movement onstage, since she remained mostly stationary throughout. But I was pretty damn impressed with this overall. Harry thinks this is the kind of song she should be singing. He felt it was really strong, although he thinks she should be the one to dictate the rhythm. Keith thinks Olivia has an amazing gift (can’t say I disagree there). However, while J-Lo enjoyed the performance, she suggests Olivia needs to bring out her inner rock chick if she’s going to do a song like that. You know, I don’t think I can disagree with that either. But I did think Olivia was easily among the top two performances tonight. She could be a threat to win this thing. Watch the video below:
