If Nick Fradiani wins Season 14 of American Idol, mentor Scott Borchetta says he may steer him towards country radio. The Connecticut native wasn't promoted as the next Nashville hitmaker when the show began, but in recent weeks he's shown his country side.
For country fans of American Idol, Josh Turner's "Your Man" is like "Amazing Grace." It's a song Scotty McCreery used to launch his music career four years ago, and one that will forever be tied to the show's folklore.
When Joey Cook was sent home last week, fans started to wonder what would have happened if the three American Idol judges still had their save. Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr. used it in Week 2, to rescue Qaasim Middleton. Urban says he has no regrets.
When Maddie Walker was booted from American Idol, country fans may have thought it was a season lost for the format. All may not be lost, however. Mentor Scott Borchetta says tonight, Nick Fradiani's country side will begin to show.
American Idol viewers are still getting it right, Scott Borchetta says. After fan votes left country singer Maddie Walker and Adanna Duru on the side of the road last week, the show's mentor says the best and brightest stars are moving on safely week to week.
