"American Idol XIV" 2015 finale is here, with the finalists having performed one last time in the competition on Tuesday before the winner is declared. Either Nick Fradiani or Clark Beckham will be announced 'American Idol' of season 14 tonight.
Sadly, Jax, who was considered one of the most consistent artists this season, was eliminated on Tuesday despite her beautiful rendition of The Who's "My Generation" and Paramore's "Misery Business." She had come dressed to perform on Tuesday, but had to go home after failing to make it to the finale.
There was disappointment in the air following Jax's exit but the show had to go on. Top two finalists – Nick Fradiani and Clark Beckham – performed three songs each: Simon Fuller's Choice, Favorite Performance and Winner's Single, on Monday, based on which America will choose the winner.
Finale Performance Recap:
Clark Beckham: He performed Ray Charles' "Georgia on My Mind" (Favorite Performance), Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine" (Simon Fuller's Choice), and "Champion" (Winner's Single) in the final live performance. He put up a good performance, in fact, a consistent one, but it was not an outstanding one.
Nick Fradiani: He took on Matchbox 20's "Bright Lights" (Favorite Performance), Jason Mraz's "I Won't Give Up" (Simon Fuller's Choice), and "Beautiful Life" (Winner's Single). His first rendition of "Bright Lights" was superb, though he was not very convincing with his second song "I Won't Give Up". However, he ended with a bang with his single.
Going by their performances on Tuesday, there is high possibility of Nick Fradiani walking away with the title but anything can happen, as it is the American public who will decide their fate.
Where to watch Live:
"American Idol XIV" 2015 finale will broadcast live on FOX at 8/7c PM Wednesday.
