Georgia’s Will Moseley covers Bob Seger’s ‘Night Moves,’ advances to American Idol Top 12

Georgia’s Will Moseley covers Bob Seger’s ‘Night Moves,’ advances to American Idol Top 12

Under Gene Simmons‘ mentorship, the brightest stars on “American Idol” Season 22 broke away from the pack by taking chances and showing a new side of themselves during Rock & Roll Hall of Fame week.

The Top 14 contestants heard the call to bring it, and there’s no doubt that everyone who’s still in the game — including Georgia native Will Moseley — is wildly talented.

But a few of the “Idol” hopefuls, including Triston Harper and Julia Gagnon, went the extra mile. They wisely showed viewers – and judges Katy PerryLuke Bryan and Lionel Richie – their dedication to growing during this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity by going out of their comfort zone with their physical appearances.

Triston ditched his trusty hat and guitar to show off his best Elvis Presley moves while Julia went full-glam for Whitney Houston.

Simmons, a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, was an integral part of Sunday’s episode as the celebrity mentor injected a dose of confidence in each contestant as he met with them. The KISS bassist/vocalist’s feedback also carried weight as he personally knew almost every Hall of Fame artist the singers covered, and gave great advice on the intention and meaning behind the songs.

Regardless of how good these 14 contestants were, two singers had to leave at the end of the night. Here’s what led to their elimination in Episode 12.
