American Idol’s Jax Sings ‘Grow Old With You’
American Idol’s Jax, whose real name is Jackie Cole, is a fan favorite. With her beautiful blonde hair and her amazing voice, 18 year old Jax is a force to be reckoned with.
Jax delivered one of the more memorable auditions of the season when she sang “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” by the legendary Beatles.
While Jax is a fan favorite, the judges were less than thrilled with her performance last week on American Idol. Singing, “Blank Space” by Taylor Swift, the judges made the following comments:
Judges Comments: J.Lo wasn’t sure if it was the right song choice for her. She didn’t feel the special quality of Jax’s voice stood out. Harry said one of Jax’s talents is being able to take an old song and making it new, but this song sounded like a carbon copy of Taylor’s song. Keith agreed with both of the judges. He felt another song choice would have worked better for her.
The theme for American Idol when the top 10 perform is movies and the mentor for the evening was Nile Rogers.
Jax sang the song Grow Old With You and did a great job with the song. The judges loved her. Keith said it was beautiful and Jennifer said she thought it was a good song choice. Harry said the song was high risk but it paid off and it was everything it should have been – lovely.
