The 12th season of American Idol premiered on Wednesday, January 16, 2013. As usual, the show started with its initial auditions. And we got our first look at the new judges. Randy Jackson has returned, but American Idol 12 is the first season for all the other judges. They are Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, and Nicki Minaj. Ryan Seacrest is returning to host the show.
I will embed Kevin Nabity’s YouTube audition video as soon as it is available. That could take a little time.
This audition was on the second episode of the season (January 17, 2013). Auditions were in Chicago.
Kevin Nabity does some funny dances and loves Ninja Turtles. He is using martial-arts sticks like the Ninja Turtles. He is from Iowa.
Kevin sings Barenaked Ladies’ “One Week.” He did sing the song fast as heck, just like the original. But this isn’t the song to prove that you’re a good singer.
Kevin sings “Sail Away.” Some of the notes are okay, and some were off. All of the judges didn’t like his singing and said NO.
Predictions For Kevin Nabity:
While he could hit a note or two from time to time, this singer was obviously not there as a serious contestant. His Ninja Turtle act was funny. But people would get tired of his singing real fast even if he managed to make them chuckle a time or two.
