American Idol season 14 is in full swing with plenty of Middle Tennessee residents onboard.
Clark Beckham, a 22-year-old White House, Tenn., native has remained in the Top 11 after a piano performance of “Takin’ It To The Streets.” Previous contestants in the Top 24 included 19-year-old Sarina-Joi Crowe, from Columbia, Tenn., and 18-year-old Riley Bria, a Spring Hill, Tenn., native. The program auditioned contestants in Nashville last year.
New this year is the addition of Big Machine Label Group Founder/CEO Scott Borchetta as mentor. He will sign the season winner to Big Machine/Universal. The mogul has begun coaching the contestants as if they were his own artists on song selection, performance and look. View clip 1. View clip 2.
