Filipino-American singer Francisco Martin sang “Alaska” by Maggie Rogers during the American Idol season 18 premiere, Sunday, February 16, 2020 on ABC.
Idol judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan help Francisco calm down before the start of the audition. This guy got the vocals though he was nervous but did well.
During chorus, he shows off an impressive range. “You little devil you!” says Luke. “I just checked the pulse of a future superstar.” Katy calls his voice “incredible.” The judges ask for an original song. He wrote a song about a friend, and he plays a bit of it, and it’s pretty good! Katy calls him Top 10. Luke calls him Top 5! Francisco gets 3 yeses and going to Hollywood!
