'American Idol' season 17 contestant 'Mr. Entertainment' Uché has fans rooting for him thanks to his flair for showmanship
Currently, the reality TV competition is getting a lot of attention from fans and viewers because of the impeccable talent featured in season 17
'American Idol' has been airing since 2002 and currently, the reality TV competition series is in its 17th season. Before the season could premiere a month ago, the series was hit by a flurry of negative reactions with most fans and viewers claiming that the show did not seem as good as it was before. But currently, the reality TV competition is getting a lot of attention because of the impeccable talent featured in season 17.
The series might be on thin ice right now because the ratings haven't been as good as its glory days, but that does not mean they are backing out easily as they have some really good talent this season. There are many hopeful contestants that are making the competition worth a watch. One among them is Uché Ndubizu.
Uché is one among the front runners this season who has a chance of making it to the finals. He has been making headlines ever since his audition performance. And now he has turned into a fan favorite. So who is Uché and why do fans love him?
That he might even be considered as a replacement to Adam Lambert is really high praise, but fans are slowly believing he could touch the stars. Uché is a Nigerian-American contestant from Texas. Apart from singing, he is also an actor and a model. His full name is Uchechukwu Walter Ndubizu-Egwimis. Uché might be an American Idol contestant, but he is no new name in the music scene. He is an R&B singer who released an EP titled “My Generation” in 2017. He even opened for Demi Lovato and rapper B.o.B.
Uché also won the Acuvue 1-Day contest. As the winner, he got to shoot an advertisement in which he was personally mentored by singer Joe Jonas. His EP “My Generation” is based out of his own life experiences. He calls his blend of funk and electronic dance music genres as “Funk DM.” He is not a singer who will stand with his mic in one hand and perform. He revealed that he was inspired by artists like David Bowie, George Michael and Prince.
Even though the judges have asked him to tone down his dance moves while performing, it does not look like he will be listening to them anytime soon. Even if Uché does get eliminated from the season there are places where his talent will flourish. But despite that minor critique the judges have for him, everyone, including the judges themselves, love it each time he performs because his voice is so powerful, and he clearly knows how to whip up an electrifying mood.
Like we said some have already started seeing the next Adam Lambert in him. "Has ‘American Idol’ found its new Adam Lambert? Meet… Uché!," wrote a fan. While another added, "Guys. #Uché from American Idol. I'm ready to buy the album. I'm ready to see him live. Done."
Adding to that another fan said, "Yes! Uche is bringing his A game. Now he's entertaining and has a good voice. #AmericanIdol."
