Grace Kinstler brought it as she stepped on the “American Idol” stage during the Top 16.
Kinstler’s powerhouse vocals took centre stage as she put her unique touch on Sia’s “Elastic Heart”.
The performance earned a standing ovation from all three judges.
“You are a force to be reckoned with,” judge Lionel Richie praised. “When I watch you perform it is laser-sharp.”
“There are arcs in storytelling and that was a perfect example,” Katy Perry said.
Luke Bryan agreed with his fellow judges: “You just have a race-car, thoroughbred voice.”
