'American Idol' fans slam judges for pondering Sir Blayke's move to next round
It's not just the judges on 'American Idol' who have pretty strong opinions on the performances shown on the show, fans too are equally outspoken and opinionated. So when the judges thought long and hard about sending Sir Blayke through in the competition, it would be a gross understatement to say that the fans weren't pleased.
Fans were moved not just by Sir Blayke's backstory of briefly being homeless while trying to get his foot in the music industry but also his performance to Ed Sheeran's 'Dive'. So when Luke Bryan decided that it was a no from him as he felt that Sir Blayke wasn't quite ready just yet, fans were upset. Thankfully Lionel Richie and Katy Perry gave him a yes after some deliberation. Even though Sir Blayke will be going to Hollywood, fans were however upset with the judges for deliberating so much over his performance while they let other performers who weren't as good as him to get through without any hesitation.
You can watch Sir Blayke's performance here:
A fan tweeted, "Friggin’ Luke Bryan passing on Sir Blayke is rich! What a joke. #AmericanIdol." Another fan wrote, "Glad Sir Blake got a ticket. He was better than most that got through this episode. #AmericanIdol." "I’m confused about Sir Blayke’s constructive criticism and their hesitation on him … but they were crazy about Eyelashes. I - #AmericanIdol," added a fan. "They let the girl with cracks through….this audition shouldn’t have taken this much deliberation. #AmericanIdol," seconded a fan.
