Definitely not the strongest premiere but we got two phenomenal auditions to make up for it.
1. Wendy - I was a bit skeptical of how this would go based on her song choice, but boy did she slay. Killer intro and then she went all out. Vocal masterclass.
2. GNT - This took me on a spiritual journey. Hypnotic.
Undeniably solid, but not really my thing
3. Peedy - Amazed at how high I’m ranking him. Gimmicky as people mentioned above, but everything else was very good.
4. Kinsey - I’m usually not a fan of twangy voices but I enjoyed this quite a bit.
5. Jonathan - The intro was perfectly fine but there’s something that didn’t quite work for me after that. Decent enough tho.
6. Jack - Interesting tone but it was slightly sleepy. Doesn’t help that we already had some amazing covers of the song.
7. Katherine - Killer song choice but there wasn’t anything here that intrigued me.
8. Katie - Weakest blind tonight in terms of execution, but I think she has potential.
9. Vaughn - It was technically fine but that’s about it. A very generic performance.
