Landen Knowlton American Idol
Landen Knowlton, 23 year old army sergeant from Tupelo, MS. He starred in a short film at age 8 that won several awards. I looked this up on IMDB.com.The short film is Flip (2004). He also starred in the sequel Flip: A new short film in 2006.
Washed by the Water by Need to Breath – He’s a sergeant in the military. He comes from a military family. A_ music choice. “Yes Sir No Sir” by the Kinks. Maybe the song’s irony is lost on the producers. Or maybe not! Katy wants him to talk to them as if they’re in his unit. He does the yelly sargeant thing. The judges hit the floor for push ups. “Miss Perry, you’re going to have to try again.” I like his voice. He’s got a cool tone and soulful phrasing. Lionel thinks there’s more in there. Katy felt he may have been trying to hard? Luke agrees. Geez. These comments. First the singers need an “extra gear” now Landen needs more subtlety. Still, they let him through – 3 yeses
