American Idol season 14 episode 8 audition Adanna Duru of Diamond Bar, California. Watch her poised, professional rendition of Lady Gaga’s “You and I.”
American Idol season 14 episode 8 moments: Harry Connick, Jr. Swings from the “Chandelier”. One of the things we love about Harry is his commitment to fairness. If a boatload of contestants are going to try to hit the high notes on Sia’s uber-popular “Chandelier”, then Harry’s going to try it, too. Even at the risk of permanent vocal injury.

American Idol season 14 episode 8 auditions: Tyanna Jones age 16 sings Little Mix’s “Wings”. Like many Idol contestants, Tyanna experienced difficult stretches growing up with her family in Jacksonville, Florida. Getting money together to fly to the San Francisco was a challenge, too.
American Idol season 14 episode 8 auditions: Parents DO Understand. It’s the young people baring their souls to Jen, Keith, and Harry who captivate and wow us. But sometimes you’ve got to thank the ones who made that journey possible in the first place – mom and dad.
