Last night on American Idol on FOX we watched as Ryan Seacrest announced the results of America’s voting and revealed the top ten contestants. But then the judges chose three wild cards to give us a top thirteen. Two of those wild cards, Stefano Langone and Naima Adedapo shared their thoughts on making it in to the wild card spots. Keep reading for more details!
MTV caught up with two of American Idol’s wild card additions last night as Stefano Langone and Naima Adedapo talked about making into those spots. Stefano Langone said he chose the song “I need you now” because “I knew if it got to the point where I had to sing for the wild card, that I’d be singing for my life. I needed a song that I’d done prior to this point that was the absolute perfect song for my voice, to show my soul, everything that I have, everything I could bring to the table as a musician.” Stefano then adds that despite his nerves, it was a great experience and he feels he had to work for his spot.
Naima Adedapo’s song choice reasoning was similar to Stefano’s as she said about her decision “It really talks about what I wanted to talk about. That is, ‘Love me tonight. I need you to put me through tonight. Let me show you who I am.’” As for making it into the wild card spot, Naima said “Words can’t really express it, but it’s like a high. It’s like being elevated somewhere. I feel like I wasn’t even on earth anymore, I just kind of was happy and in the moment. I felt like I had an opportunity to really show them how much I really want it.”
Do you think the judges made the right choice on American Idol by sending Stefano Langone and Naima Adedapo through? Be sure to tune in next week at 8 pm EST on Wednesday to see the top 13 perform on Fox!
