On American Idol, Mara Justine avoided the hair flips and instead, delivered a fantastic covere of “Run To You” by Whitney Houston for her Top 24 Solo performance in front of a live audience and Judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie on American Idol. She won over the judges.
Luke Bryan said they are spellbound by her performance. Luke said she showed them this edgy rock side of her. Luke said way to show up today. Katy Perry said it sounded so good on her. Katy said she was so versatile in that she could sing addresses in the phone book and she would listen. Katy said it is so nice to see things in their original state.
Katy said she showed them something so raw and beautiful. Lionel Richie said the greatest advice ever given to him works for her. Lionel said he used to run from the stage and someone told him to stand still and the crowd came to him. Lionel said that is what happened to her.
