The first episode introduced viewers and the 11 first contestants.
It was the first. Yam HausFrom the great state Minnesota. They did “Ready To Go,” a poppy, uptempo dance track harkening bands like Maroon 5 and Walk The Moon. Snoop Dogg was impressed, calling it a “hit record.”
Next up, it was a K-pop artist from Oklahoma! AleXa performed a high-energy version of her song “Wonderland.” Donned in a blue wig, her dance moves were just as impressive as her vocals. The performance ended with AleXa falling backwards off the stage to a rapturous response from the studio audience her high school choir classmates back home. Consider us impressed!
