Hollie Cavanagh did the impossible and ended up in the Top 4 on 'American Idol' and guess what? She is not about to let go. She had a chance last year and didn’t get through. Now she’s got a chance to take it all the way. Will her Journey end with Journey? Can she make us love her with Bonnie Raitt?
We have been sitting on the edge of our seats just waiting for ‘American Idol’ contestant Hollie Cavanagh to bust out of her shell. While she has one of the biggest voices in the competition, she also has spent the duration of it fading into the background on account of bad song choices and, of course, tough competition.
Despite the early comments from the judges, it was obvious that Hollie Cavanagh is stepping up her game on 'American Idol' after a stirring performance of Queen's 'Save Me' and then a more powerful performance of Miley Cyrus' 'The Climb.' Unfortunately, the first time around, Cavanagh couldn’t get the same kind of love from the judges that the other contestants got. However, she definitely proved that she's still in the running after her second performance of Miley's ballad.
Hollie Cavanagh was challenged to sing a new and an old song on tonight's episode of 'American Idol.' Each contestant was tasked with performing a hit from the 21st century in the first round of performances, and the Top 7 had to do live renditions of soul classics for their second (it was actually modeled after the late Dick Clark's program 'American Bandstand').
For her first song, our favorite British gal from the Lonestar State kicked off the show with Adele's 'Rolling in the Deep,' and Cavanagh sang Dusty Springfield's bluesy '60s hit 'Son of a Preacher Man.'
It’s pretty hard to own the ‘American Idol’ stage when there's a delay in the start of your song due to technical difficulties. Hollie Cavanagh can attest to that, after the start of her performance of ‘What a Feeling’ (from the movie ‘Flashdance’) was delayed because the crew was having trouble getting power to the keyboard.
Teenage 'American Idol' contestant Hollie Cavanagh performed Carrie Underwood's hit 'Jesus Take the Wheel' on tonight's episode, where contestants were challenged to pick a song by their own personal idol. While the Texas native put her heart and soul into the performance, the judges had mixed feelings about her rendition of Underwood's song.
She's the tiny girl with the giant voice that leaves everyone tilting their heads and asking, "Where does that come from?" On a night when many contestants have faced criticism, Hollie Cavanagh had to follow contestant Joshua Ledet, who got a three-judge standing ovation and left Jennifer Lopez exclaiming that it was the best thing she's seen on 'American Idol' -- ever.
When you see 17-year-old 'American Idol' contestant Hollie Cavanagh, you would never imagine what happens when she opens her mouth and begins to sing. This little girl has one of the biggest voices in the competition, and she gave one of the most impressive performances of the night singing ‘All the Man I Need’ by Whitney Houston.
