'American Idol' Top 24: Sir Blayke's performance leaves fans saying he needs 'one pass'
After watching Sir Blayke's performance filled with glaring flaws, fans hoped that the 'American Idol' audience would give him a second chance
Sir Blayke aka Charlton “Blayke” Ridgell's journey in life has been anything but easy. Despite all the curveballs that life threw his way, the 28-year-old's determination to make a name for himself in the music industry prompted him to try out for 'American Idol' Season 20.
From the get-go, the judges kept pushing Sir Blayke to be more confident and express himself. The Los Angeles resident did exactly that and managed to earn a spot on the Top 24 performers list. With the help of guest mentor Bebe Rexha, Sir Blayke worked on perfecting his vocals to The Script's 'Breakeven'. Despite practicing hard, and putting his best foot forward, sadly Sir Blayke's performance failed to hit the mark. Though his voice was great, his breath control and the wrong song choice worked against him.

Many fans took to the show's YouTube page hoping that the show's audience would give him a second chance despite the glaring flaws in his performance. A fan commented, "He's such a great singer and he is connecting with the audience emotionally. I feel like there's something missing from him and I fear he might be in danger especially if we're looking at fb stats. I hope he is safe cause he gave a great performance. He just has to find himself and let go." "I think the excitement and pressure has made his breath control a problem here. Happens to everyone but I hope the voters give him the one pass!" wrote a fan. "Damn!!! This hurts my heart cuz this kid has an incredible voice...unfortunately I think it was the wrong song choice...he struggled with his breath control & it thru his pitch off," added a fan.
Another fan shared, "He was good... but he needs to push a little more." "I love his voice but the breath control needed work in places and I don't think the rearrangement did him any favors," pointed out a fan. "He is good but i think he can’t make it so far theres so much talent this season," expressed a fan.
