Ada Vox may not have been a viewer favorite after her performance on Sunday but the “American Idol” judges weren’t going to let talent pass them by.
Viewers didn’t vote Vox, real name Adam Sanders, through to the top 10 after her performance on Sunday but the contestants were able to sing one more time for a chance at the top 10.
Vox sang a moving rendition of “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” by Jennifer Holliday causing the audience to chant her name after the performance and the judges to make an “executive decision” to put Vox in the top 10.
“I don’t know everything,” Perry told Vox. “But I think we do know talent when we see it.”
Vox was grateful to advance to the next round but reminded her fans to be sure to vote next week.
“Top 10 #Voxies!!!!!Please, please, please make sure you app vote next time if you want to keep me in the competition! This was too close for comfort! Haha. I love y’all,” Vox tweeted.
