Beane’s performance went down a storm with the “American Idol” judges. His undisputed epic Marvin Gaye cover was outstanding to the thought of the judges.
Katy Perry and Luke Bryan were at the Dolby Theatre as usual for Sunday’s episode, with Lionel Richie watching from home after being exposed to COVID-19.
After Katy Perry’s advice to Beane to “sing with diamonds in your eyes,” he then belted out an incredible version of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On”. Perry and Bryan gave the singer a standing ovation, with Richie later telling him he’d made it into the top 24.
“It’s going to be a beautiful day in the neighbourhood,” Richie told him.
Beane gushed, “I feel amazing, I feel blessed, I feel well dressed.”
