Luke Islam You Will Be Found
Luke Islam – Julianne’s Golden Buzzer – Of course, the key to touching Simon’s heart is to sing a song from his favorite movie, “The Greatest Showman.” He sings a dramatic version of “Never Enough.” But is it enough? He’s a few years away from being great. There are intonation problems and he’s not quite mature enough to grasp the song’s meaning. He’s still imitative. The judges are on their feet, though. Julianne feels like a “proud mama.” She says he’s a voice for all those people who have “never been enough.” She can’t wait to see him in the finals. Gabrielle calls him a world class talent. Howie is sure he’ll make it to Broadway. Queen compliments him for “being in that moment.” Hm. Simon gets no words.
This 12 year old performer is Julianne Hough’s Golden Buzzer. After his performance, Waitress creator Sara Bareilles tweeted him congratulations. He sticks to Broadway performing “You Will Be Found” from Dear Evan Hansen. He has a very pleasing voice and a ton of potential.
He needs to work on a few vocal issues, but he’s only 12. Julianne is so proud. “That voice is undeniable,” she says. Simon compliments his confidence and poise. “You’ve done yourself really proud,” he says. Howie predicts that he’ll be starring on a Broadway stage.
