American Idol 2021 came back with a big twist where 10 finalists from Season 18 were given a second chance to realize their dream.
It was the first time the alums performed on stage before a live audience after performing remotely last year due to the pandemic.
Dewayne Crocker, Jr. stood out with his performance of “Voice Of God,” by Dante Bowe ft. Steffany Gretzinger & Chandler Moore.
DeWayne said his biggest regrets last year was trying to be someone he was not.
He took the judges and audience to church on the piano with a stunning rendition of “Voice of God.”
“You look like an artist,” Perry told the 24-year-old. “It got more powerful and more soulful and definitely connected. It was really dope. I felt those church chills.”
Bryan said Crocker gave a “very solid vocal,” while Richie told him, “you clearly stepped into your light.”
“You had our attention from beginning to end,” Richie continued.
What a stellar performance by Dewayne Crocker, Jr. on “Voice Of God,” we hope he goes through the remaining rounds to the finals.
