I can’t stop playing this over and over. Chayce has a gift of telling his story through music. He is way more talented than the other 3. He deserves to be the next American Idol. his song is better than most of the songs on the radio right now! He was my choice for winning from the first time I heard him sing.

Chayce Beckham – Blackbird by The Beatles
Bobby says his strength is connecting to folks. Chayce sees himself representing blue collar people. The song is re-arranged. It’s still a folk song, but the tempo is changed a bit, with the addition of blues elements. An iconic song like this needs to be changed up, but not too radically! He’s walking that fine line pretty well here. It’s a good song choice for him. Chayce’s fans will be pleased with that performance. Lionel is standing. “You have an identifiable voice….you gave us that identity. You’re going all the way.” Saying the quiet part out loud? Katy calls him “Chayce the Ace.” Luke invites Chayce on a bass fishing trip.
Chayce Beckham – Fire Away by Chris Stapleton
Chayce talks about the horrible drunk crash he survived. It helped him hit bottom before finally getting sober. His old co-workers where he operated a forklift greet him. Next, he heads home to his mom’s house. He crashed in his old bedroom. People have told mom that Chayce is an inspiration. He heads to his elementary school. He performed his first show in the fifth grade talent show. He ends his special day with a concert. HE’S CRYING BECAUSE HE’S HAPPY! “Full circle, man,” he says.
Excellent song choice for Chayce. It’s bluesy and easy, but emotional too. The chorus allows his raspy voice to let loose. Lionel calls the song a great choice for his voice. “That grit you have is undeniable.” Katy tells him to stay the guy from Apple Valley. Luke thinks he’s opened up a lot over the course of the competition.

We get a little recap of Chayce Idol journey before he sings. The song is very personal. Chayce talks about a “mean” father, and how he hit bottom with addition. There were losses, but the redemption? “Sober” by 24. He only sings a snippet of the song. He follows it up with a reprise of a favorite earlier song “You Should Probably Leave” by Chris Stapleton.
I don’t understand why he doesn’t sing a full version of his winners single? He performs a terrific version of the Chris Stapleton song. “Who have you turned into?” asks Lionel. He calls it a “complete transformation.” Katy asks about how high his song charted. He says No. 1. “Forklift boy, your are a rockstar.”
Chayce plays a little bit of his original song “23” for Finneas, who calls him “earnest.” Next, he sings a bit of “Cold Weather” his Personal Idol song. Finneas urges him to keep his voice as forward as possible. Chayce won’t play guitar for that song “Make sure the band doesn’t step on your toes,” Finneas says.
As it turns out, he IS playing guitar on “Cold Weather,” and the band is kinda stepping on his toes. It takes a minute, but the performance finally takes on an urgent tone on the second chorus. He’s giving his fans what they want, for sure. “I knew you when Chayce!” gushes Katy. She’s glad he decided to play guitar on the song. She calls his guitar is his “ammunition.” Luke says people love artists who are genuine, and that’s why he got this far. Lionel assures him that people like him.

I just got chills ! This kid, this guy just told a whole life of experiences at his age in just one song. He deserves to win AI Chase has a skill to operate heavy machinery, however, I believe he will be leaving that job because he is a fantastic singer and can never go back. This song is better than most of the songs on the radio right now! He was my choice for winning from the first time I heard him sing.
Repeating Lionel’s words from last week, “put this song out right now”.
Another hit song for this young man who’ll be officially trading his heavy equipment machinery in for the heavy “load out” equipment for a life on the road in music! Hats off to the person sitting at the mixing board—-perfection!
Chayce’s vocals compliment his writing ability equally! He’s just soared into the stratosphere with his original songs from last week and this week. Done watching , not giving a kid that was 12 years old a break , stupid and ridiculous, you guys could take care of it, he had a chance to win,
Amazing song Chayce, wishing you the very best moving forward! No matter what the final vote is you got this! Looking forward to hearing a lot more of your music!!
I’ve had this song stuck in my head since yesterday. If people actually voted based on who would have the best career no one would stand a chance against Chayce A HIT 24 and so much more is on the way for you Chayce, can’t waite to be behind the wheel and listening to you , with the windows down, love Chayce Beckham Performs 23 tonight.
