Alyssa Raghu Returns to American Idol to Audition Again
Shark in the Water by VV Brown – Luke and Lionel shield Katy’s eyes with papers. Alyssa begins to sing and Katy yells “MY SAUCE!” Man, it was SHOCKING when she left before the live shows last year. She was SOOOO good. We see a flashback, Katy thought she needed to work on her presence “sometimes you’re a little forgettable.” Alyssa has been taking dance classes, performing tons and tons of shows.
She seems VERY determined. She way more comfortable in her skin, a year later. YEP SHE’S STILL AWESOME! “My first chill bumps of the day,” says Luke. “You’re really shining,” says Lionel. “I’m so proud of you!” Luke calls her natural and comfortable. Katy promises that they will always keep it real. Katy suggests that she loses the guitar next time. Katy plans on being her “stage mom.” – 3 yeses.
