‘American Idol’ Contestant Reed Grimm Shows He’s Got The ‘Moves Like Jagger’
Contestant Reed Grimm was the lucky guy who got to kickstart the live competition on ‘American Idol‘ tonight. He gave us a jazzy rendition of ‘Moves Like Jagger’ by Maroon 5 featuring Christina Aguilera and even if he was feeling the heat of being the first to go, he certainly didn’t show that he was sweating.
Grimm may have began his segment by taking his camera home and telling us that his hometown of Ellsworth was famous for being the ‘Cheese Curd Capital of Wisconsin,’ but we’re thinking soon they may have something more exciting to brag about. Randy Jackson complimented the singer on his choice of song and being “bold enough to start the season like this.”
Midway through the performance, Grimm took it to a set of drums and really brought it home. At that point we were sold, and we think the judges were too. Jennifer Lopez told Grimm, “You are jazzy, you are musical, you have an amazing voice, and I think you showed that,” while Steven Tyler asserted that not only was there a whole new generation watching him, but that he loved it.
