A 15-year-old-girl sang a slowed-down, bluesy a cappella version of MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s “Live Wire” while auditioning Sunday on the TV singing competition “American Idol.”
Moments after Casey Bishop‘s audition, a judge, Luke Bryan, said: “I think she’s the damn winner of ‘American Idol’. Period. It’s evident.”
He later added: “Wow, y’all. My body has been tingling for 10 minutes. She is a massive star.”
In addition to “Live Wire,” she also sang the jazz standard “My Funny Valentine.”

In an episode of Zane Griggs‘s “Hunger Hunt Feast” podcast last October, Neil spoke about the immense public interest in the band’s “The Stadium Tour” which was originally scheduled to take place in 2020 before being postponed until 2021 due to ongoing pandemic.
“It’s a nice feeling, that so many people want us to get back together,” Neil said. “Because we basically broke up five years ago — we basically called it quits and said that it was a good run, it was a lot of fun, okay, we’re done.
“So I continued to tour with my solo band up until COVID, and now I’ve had basically almost a year off because of not being able to tour with my solo band. ‘Cause everything got shut down — everything. But it looks like it’s loosening back up.
“I have a couple of solo shows coming up in the next couple of months,” he continued. “It’s gonna be fun just to get back and sing a little bit. I’ve never gone this long without performing or singing in my entire life, since I was 16. So it’ll be fun to just get back out there.
“A lot of people were pretty bummed out when we decided to retire, basically. The excitement around the tour has just been pretty amazing. We have fans that maybe we didn’t know we had.
