Talking about his singing, Luke said, “It’s got the vibe of lounge music.” Katy Perry too praised the aspiring singer. She said, “I don’t know who you are as an artist yet I know that you can sing. I don’t ever want to go to karaoke with you because you will kill it. But a karaoke star doesn’t make American Idol star.”

Fans Want American Idol To Give Mikey A Chance

Both Luke and Katy gave Mikey a no stating that he is in the discovery phase of his career. The only one to say yes was Lionel. So, it is decided that Mikey Burson isn’t going to Hollywood with his mother. Despite getting a standing ovation from the three judges, Mikey and his mother failed to get the golden ticket.

This didn’t sit well with fans that loved his performance and slammed the judges on social media for their decision.

One user said, “Can’t believe Mikey didn’t go through. Did Luke and Katy go deaf???”

“Mikey was a good singer… Like Jesus Christ give the guy a chance,” said another fan.

A third enraged fan noted, “Wtf he didn’t make it?? Is tonight bizarro night??”

Finally, a fourth fan added, “Mikey probably would’ve gotten a yes if the Mom wasn’t there.”
