American Idol 2021 continues tonight with Auditions part 3. Who will get a coveted golden ticket to Hollywood? Who will be sent home! Judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan return, along with host Ryan Seacrest. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing is the rule in the studio
Christian McGuckian has that “magic country stuff” going on in her voice, according to Luke Bryan, but she’s letting everything around her get in the way. Christian enters the American Idol audition room letting her nerves get the best of her, but after Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan and Katy Perry take Christian under their wings, doing their best to make her feel comfortable during her audition, Christian is able to come out of her shell and show the judges that she has what it takes. Will Christian be able to overcome her insecurities and “dig in the right direction” during Hollywood Week?

Christian McGuckian on American Idol 2021
Girl Crush by Maren Morris – 21 – Easley SC – Maid – She cleans houses and businesses. But she loves to sing. A couple of months ago she was in an accident. She only endured a couple of cracked ribs, but it changed her priorities. Inexperienced she’s very very nervous.
Luke helps her relax. But her voice cracks almost immediately. Hm. This isn’t very good at all. She sways back and forth with very little affect. She’s just under pitch pretty much throughout. Luke says she has “magic country stuff” in her voice. Luke says her timing is really off. She begins crying immediately. OK commercial break. But c’mon this singer IS NOT READY FOR THIS JELLY.
Boy, they’re really helping this girl get through. They ask her to sing again, while the urge her on. IT’S STILL NOT VERY GOOD. Katy says “You have some things to work on.” Luke thinks she’s authentic, which is why he’s pushing for her. – 3 yeses. They should have told her to practice more and come back next year.
Viewer react to Christian McGuckian American Idol
She is rough around the edges and not really infusing the words with emotion. Nice enough tone but dropping those phrase endings is killing me. Glad she got a little more comfortable, but I think she’ll fall apart during Hollywood week. Hopefully I’m wrong but… we shall see.
ugh this is going to be rough on her. She has no confidence and is just a sack of nerves. When she is surrounded by older and more confident people and those big voices, it just adds to the pressures. I hope she can really learn resilience and strength, girl’s going to need those in spades. Good luck sweet heart I’m rooting for you.
