On the third night of auditions for ABC’s second season of American Idol, judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan meet Madison VanDenburg from Albany, New York — the state capital. For her audition, Madison sits at the piano and sings the 2018 song “Speechless” by country duo Dan + Shay. The song is a profession of love and is often played at weddings. See the band’s official wedding video below. Note: Katy Perry is engaged to actor Orlando Bloom (The Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean).
After the performance, Katy Perry tells Madison that she “got my first goosebumps.” That’s a good thing. Former American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez uses the term “goosies” when she is moved by a performance on World of Dance (which airs against American Idol at 8 pm on NBC). American Idol airs Sundays at 8 pm on ABC, right before Shark Tank which airs at 10 pm. [BONUS: Stream any ABC show through the ABC GO Digital App found here. Download is FREE.]
