Filipino-Canadian talent Tyson Venegas has amazed American Idol fans and judges alike and secured a coveted spot in the competition’s Top 12. The 17-year-old singer-songwriter’s journey began with a Platinum ticket and has now led him to be one of the season’s most promising contestants.
Venegas was revealed to be one of the top 12 contestants of Season 21 on the show’s episode broadcast on Monday, April 24, 2023 (Tuesday, April 25 Philippine Standard Time). The remaining contenders were narrowed down from the top 20, based on an audience vote after Sunday’s performance where the 17-year-old singer performed with a piano and an original song.
Venegas initially turned heads during his audition with Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind,” earning a Platinum ticket and high praise from judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan. Their predictions of his Top 10 potential were recently validated when Venegas performed his original song, “180,” accompanied by a piano.
The teenager’s songwriting skills have given him a competitive edge in the music industry, where many artists rely on others to write their songs. After his powerful rendition of Elton John’s “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down on Me”, host Ryan Seacrest congratulated Venegas and ushered him into the “victory zone” on the American Idol stage.
With a strong following on social media, Venegas expressed his gratitude for the support and urged fans to keep voting in the upcoming live coast-to-coast vote.
Cheering for you, we are! Congratulations and go for the win @tysonvenegas #idol #tysononidol https://t.co/xzMYVlgfhi
