Cohoes Teen Skyrockets To Final 8 On American Idol
The massive wave of Idol momentum continued Sunday night for 17-year-old Cohoes native Madison VanDenberg. The pitch-perfect teenager advanced to the final eight on American Idol following a performance of a song that many have said they never heard sung so well.
A live audience watched and voted on 'Disney Night' and following her performance of "How Far I'll Go" from the movie Moana, VanDenberg once again proved that she is a force to be reckoned with.
Following her sterling performance, Luke Bryan told the humble teen that, 'I've heard that song sung a lot, but you just surpassed any version I've ever heard'. Lionel Richie and Katy Perry commented on her abilities to hit such tremendous high notes, doing it with relative ease.
After a nationwide vote, Madison advanced to the top 8. She'll perform again next Sunday night April 28th.
At this point, the only question isn't how far VanDenberg will go, but just how soon she'll get there!
