On the fourth night of American Idol auditions, judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan will see a few families faces (Alyssa Raghu, Isaac Streetman) and a whole lot of new faces auditioning for the talent show. One of the most memorable is Peach Martine. The 16-year-old is proudly originally from Cleveland, Ohio, home of The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Days prior to her debut appearance on American Idol, Peach told her local TV station, “I have a life-long goal of becoming as much of an icon as my icon Mick Jagger.” She added, “World tour, Grammys*, I want to write a Broadway musical and a very recognizable film score.” Note: Jagger never wrote a Broadway musical but in 2014 he was pushing to get the 2013 Oscar-nominated documentary about backup singers, 20 Feet From Stardom, turned into a Broadway musical. Alas, it never happened. Or not yet. (Note: Mick Jagger has been nominated for 16 Grammys but has won only 3.)
In 2017, Playbill reported that theater executives where trying to get Mick Jagger and the rest of the Rolling Stones on-board for a new jukebox musical, but so far there’s been no Satisfaction. American Idol airs Sundays at 8 pm on ABC, right before Shark Tank.
Listen to Peach Martine below: she sounds more like Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, who had great success with his Broadway musical, American Idiot, which won two Tony Awards. (Green Day has been nominated for 17 Grammys and has won 4.)
