Kennedy Reid's Stunning 'Fancy' Performance Has Judges On Their Feet

American Idol contestant Kennedy Reid’s stunning cover performance of the timeless classic “Fancy” had all three judges on their feet.

There are some songs and performers that only a few people would dare to cover. Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, The Beatles, and Elvis Presley fall into that exclusive category. Their songs and sound are so iconic, memorable and beloved that everyone can instantly detect any error, slip-up or variation from the original. 

Another legendary performer who fits into that category is Reba McEntire. She has produced dozens of timeless tunes throughout her illustrious and successful career. She did not earn the nickname “The Queen of Country Music” for nothing. If you’re going to cover a Reba song, you better bring it because if not, you’re setting yourself up for failure.

In a clip posted on YouTube, Kennedy did just that and more with her cover of “Fancy.” She sounded absolutely terrific as she let loose and brought so much energy and enthusiasm to her performance. 

Her stunning performance brought all the judges – Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan – to their feet. She owned the stage, giving the impression that she had been doing this for years.

“Well, I remember it all very well, lookin’ back

It was the summer I turned eighteen

We lived in a one-room, rundown shack

On the outskirts of New Orleans”

You don’t have to be a country music or a Reba fan to appreciate Kennedy’s performance. It was so energetic and enthusiastic. It was an entertaining and infectious performance in which Kennedy showed off her vocal skills and her ability to play to the audience and get them involved. 

It's safe to say that Kennedy will be tough to beat as the competition progresses. That performance is sure to resonate with people voting.
