Clark Beckham “Make It Rain” American Idol Video: Jennifer Lopez Predicts Singer Will Make It To Finale — WATCH HERE!
Clark Beckham once again shined on “American Idol” on Wednesday, this time with “Make It Rain.” Check out the video below!
As per the new season 14 format, just before hitting the stage, Beckham found out he received enough votes for last week’s performance to make the Top 7. With that good news, the contestant performed Ed Sheeran’s “Make It Rain,” chosen for the night’s Billboard Hot 100 Hits theme. Perhaps thanks to some advice from special guest mentor Jason Derulo, Beckham opted to play the electric guitar and showed more “swag” than ever before.
Jennifer Lopez told the frontrunner, “That was so amazing. It is so effortless for you the way you sing.” Still, the judge told Beckham that he needs to work on his total “package,” making his style and image show even more “swag” to continue the trajectory. “You have a finale in front of you that you can be at. I can see that,” she told him.
Harry Connick Jr. complimented Beckham’s “amazing instrument” and “how amazing you can sing,” and noted that while the performance “was very good,” “it would’ve been 1,000 times better if you gave yourself that rhythmic edge” by slowing down his guitar playing. Keith Urban agreed on that, and further told Beckham that in the end, he “killed it.”
On a night of with a lot of negative feedback for the contestants, Beckham received some of the strongest praise and constructive criticism. Watch the video below, and tell us what you think!
