Lionel Richie Won't Regret Changing His Vote for Uche Ndubizu on 'American Idol'


While Uche Ndubizu (pronounced oo-chay) may have been hoping to hit a high note with the judges — Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan— during his American Idol audition, his first song choice fell a bit flat.

 Uche gave a pop-centric rendition of Christina Aguliera’s hit song "Ain’t No Other Man" but coupled with some explosive dance moves, the judges were less than impressed. Luckily, Katy decided to give the Idol contender another chance and asked the 24-year-old to "stand still and sing." Uche then showed off his vocal range with a gospel song — but still, not all the judges were impressed. 

 "I’m going to give you a vote of no, based on I don’t know if the last song was actually closer to what your voice is going to be," Lionel told Uche.
