Meet Colin Jamieson, a resident of Boxford and 2016 graduate of Masconomet Regional High School, whose American Idol audition of Billie Eilish’s “Six Feet Under” had the judges swooning over his vocal abilities.
“Good deal Colin,” Bryan said as Jamieson concluded his audition. “Man, you got a great voice, just all of the breaths, it was a lot of them but when you got in the chorus you were singing some pretty good stuff.”
Perry agreed with Bryan and admits that if Jamieson corrects that issue, she thinks he’s really got a chance in the competition.
“If you do that, I think that you’ve really got something to work with,” Perry added.
“I think you’ve got something in your voice, and you’ve got some qualities to present to us,” Richie shared. “And I want to discover all the rest of those qualities, it’s a yes from me.”
“If you want this, which I think you do, just don’t let anything get in the way and it could be yours,” Perry later added.
“I’m a yes too,” Bryan chimed in. “Hey, guess what, you’re going to Hollywood.”
