The competition for Season 19 of American Idol is already shaping up to be fierce. This season, Cassandra Coleman is one of several talented artists competing for the coveted award. Unfortunately, she just got eliminated during the Top 10 showdown, held on May 2.
Cassandra went to Los Angeles to audition. She performed The Killers' "The Way It Was" and OneRepublic's "Apologize" with Timbaland. She advanced to the next round after all three judges voted "yes."
Cassandra told the judges then that she doesn't normally put on a display. Even singing in front of her family makes her anxious. She, on the other hand, nailed her audition. Cassandra has "a new voice the world has never heard before," according to Luke Bryan.
Cassandra was included in the Genre Challenge's "Indie-Folk" category, alongside Christina Daugherty, Hunter Metts, and Graham DeFranco. She was later seen singing "Too Near" by Alex Clare in a duet with Wyatt Pike called "The Lass & The Lad." Both contestants made it to the next round.
Cassandra performed "Running With the Wolves" by Aurora during the Showstoppers Round. Following that, during the Final Judgment, the judges informed her that she had done enough to qualify for the Top 24 semifinals.
