By a narrow margin, “American Idol” fans who voted in our recent poll declare that Catie Turner‘s best performance so far is Camila Cabello‘s “Havana” from the Top 14 results episode. As one of the final seven singers of Season 16, Catie continues to wow America each week with her powerful voice and quirky personality. In case you missed it, or just want to see it again, watch the video of her “Havana” performance below.
In his “American Idol” recap, our live-blogger Denton Davidson noted about her “Havana” performance, “This is a little edgy for Catie and I like it! Go ahead girl! I love her look tonight as well, she is quickly displaying every bit the ‘full package’ the judges so often talk about. She’s definitely in her own lane. I’m happy for her. Great job!”
While “Havana” is fans’ favorite Catie Turner performance so far, their second-place pick is “Call Me” with 18% of the vote. This is the song that Catie belted out during the Top 24 performance episode that impressed judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan enough to put her through to the live rounds on ABC.
“Take Me to Church” comes in third place in our poll results at 17%, followed by “Bad Romance” in fourth at 15%, “21st Century Machine” in fifth at 14% and then “Good to Be Alive (Hallelujah),” which was her superstar duet with Andy Grammer, in sixth at 9%. Editors’ note: This poll was conducted before she performed “Once Upon a Dream” during Disney night.
Despite her popularity on the show, Catie admitted during Top 14 week that she’s been receiving hate mail from fans. “Some people are mean,” she said in a pre-taped package, which resulted in this inspiring response from Katy Perry: “I think you are exactly as you should be.”
