Abi Carter Stuns With Evanescence “Bring Me To Life”

American Idol final is tonight!! Who do you think will win? One of The Music Man’s favorite performances from this season was when Abi Carter stunned viewers with a song known to be very difficult to cover. Wearing a black dress and knee high boots, she was ready to take on Evanescence’s legendary hit song “Bring Me To Life” hoping to impress TV viewers but also the notoriously difficult to please Evanescence fans.

From the opening lines, the audience knew they were witnessing something special, including Katy Perry, who watched the whole performance opened mouthed. Her cover was an instant hit on YouTube with many fans saying this is the best American Idol performance in history.

During the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame night on American Idol, Abi Carter put on a special performance of Elton John’s classic “Yellow Brick Road” quickly becoming a fan favourite to win the show.

Sitting behind her Roland piano, Abi’s beautifully controlled vocals echo around a totally silent studio as the audience listen intently to every word she sings. Not only did this stunning performance easily get her through to the next round it’s also blowing up online as fan dub her the winner of the show.

In the 2024 edition of American Idol, 21-year-old Abi Carter blew the judges away when she came on with full confidence and armed with a piano as she covered “What Was I Made For?” by Billie Eilish. From the outset, the judges could see the wealth of talent that this young individual possesses and were instantly moved by her immaculate vocal range when performing this complex and difficult song.

At just 21, it is clear that Abi Carter is a well-rounded individual with a great personality and social skills. Before her performance, she gives small glimpses into her life to the judges and tells them that she has been a fan of American Idol all her life, leading up to this moment and eventually building up the courage to compete herself! Her song of choice also received approval from Katy Perry, who said she loved the song. They were not, however, prepared for just how good Abi Carter is. Watch below:

One thing that is beautiful about this clip is not just Abi Carter’s performance, but the support and love that she receives from her family watching backstage. From her brother commenting on how talented she is, to her sister wiping away tears from their mother’s eye, it’s clear that this family is close and is an example of how far people can go when they have the right love and support system behind them. Fans commented on how special their family is and how pure their interactions are.

“What Was I Made For?” was the fifth single released from the soundtrack of 2023’s Barbie movie. The soundtrack featured a vast array of huge musicians, from Eilish to Dua Lipa, and Nicki Minaj to Sam Smith and Tame Impala. “What Was I Made For?” was one of the biggest hits off of the album, winning Song of the Year; a true achievement, as the last song from a movie that won the same award was Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” from 1997’s Titanic.

Outside of her time on American Idol, Abi Carter has been very busy preparing herself for the release of her first original song. “It’s All Love” is set for a March 2024 release, and with that, we wish all the very best to this incredibly talented individual.
