A teenage girl sang a slowed-down, bluesy Cappella version of MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s “Live Wire” while auditioning Sunday on the TV singing competition “American Idol”.
Moments after Casey Bishop‘s audition, one of the judges, Luke Bryan, said:
“I think she’s the damn winner of ‘American Idol’. Period. It’s evident.”
He later added: “Wow, y’all. My body has been tingling for 10 minutes. She is a massive star.”
In addition to “Live Wire”, the 15-year-old from Estero, Florida sang the jazz standard “My Funny Valentine”.
“I wrote ‘Top 10, def’ on the MÖTLEY CRÜE song, and then you just did — I don’t even know what the heck just happened just then [with ‘My Funny Valentine’].”
