On American Idol, Amelia Hammer Harris came out and performed a rendition of “Gimme Shelter” The Rolling Stones for her audition. She is the daughter of Jack Hammer who wrote Great Balls of Fire” and “Yakitty Yak.” Amelia met him for the first time when she was 16 and talked about making peace about it when Jack was diagnosed with dementia.
Lionel Richie said she has a sultry voice. Lionel said if you ever have to go deep this is her moment right now. Luke Bryan said Amelia is one of the most put together artists. Katy Perry asked why it has not happened yet as she is surprised why Amelia is not a major audience yet. Katy called her Top 10 material right now. Lionel gave her a “Yes” to see what she can do next.
Katy told Amelia to focus as she gave her a “Yes.” Luke also said “Yes” as they sent her to Hollywood.
