WATCH: Macy Kate Plucked From Rising Star Audience, Amazes in Surprise Audition
Macy Kate was a last-minute contestant on Sunday’s “Rising Star,” invited to the show as an audience member only to be picked during the live premiere to take the stage and audition.
When it came time to perform “Me and My Broken Heart” by Rixton, the teen came off like a reasoned pro, sending the votes — and the wall leading to the next round — soaring high.
“Experts” Ludacris, Brad Paisley and Kesha all voted yes, and combined with fan votes, Kate topped Jesse Kinch for the highest score of the night — 93 percent positive votes.
Kesha said afterward, “I was blown away. I think America was blown away.”
And Ludcaris said that while Kate has room to improved, for now her voice “superseded” that.
