From the moment he opened his mouth, you knew that Adam Sanders could sing. Despite initial nervousness from meeting his idol Mariah Carey, this young man showed why he was a voice to be threatened by in this competition.

R&B and soul sound like a good direction for this kid because he has the voice for it, ask Keith Urban. The judge called it when he said, "Dude can sing," and clearly the other judges approved when they were left speechless with smiles after Sanders performed Etta James' 'I'd Rather Go Blind.' "Let's not even comment," Randy Jackson added. So it was apparent Sanders was on his way to Hollywood. Sometimes comments aren't necessary after singing like that.
