Sia Shows Face to 'American Idol' Top 4 During Mentoring Session, Fans React
Fans are no doubt excited about the upcoming three-day finale for the American Idol Season 15 on April 5-7 but for sure many will be thrilled to know that Sia showed her face to the Top 4 contestants during the mentoring sessions.
After pop songstress Sonika Vaid of Massachusetts was eliminated, the Top 4 were revealed: Trent Harmon, Mackenzie Bourg, La'Porsha Renae and Dalton Rapattoni. The four finalists had the chance to be trained by Sia, NJ.com reported.
Sia, who is known to cover her face with her black and white hair, promised to make eye contact with the contestants for the mentoring sessions. But fans will not see her mysterious face since the camera was shooting behind her or would blur her face.
“I was such a fan of Sia going into this. To see her in the flesh is kinda like seeing a unicorn, "said Harmon, who sang an impressive rendition of "Chandelier," according to Yahoo.
The singer was wearing a short blue dress that goes well with her giant blue bow and high heels during the mentoring which resulted into amazing performances.
The face-to-face discussion thrilled the finalists especially Renae who said that she is really "excited to meet Sia and get the chance to do one of her songs" and that she hopes that Sia will allow her to see her face, promising not to take pictures, International Business Times reported.
Although the contestants got to see Sia's face, the fans didn’t. Some expressed their jealousy on Twitter while most said that it was a great honor for the contestants to see the face of the songstress.
@Whats_SHAKin13 wrote on Twitter, "I wish Sia would show us her face #idol," while @Itsmaddiebee said, "SIA just show your face. Jeeeeeez."
Other fans had hilarious reactions to Sia hiding her face behind her hair with one saying, "Am i the only one that just looked up pictures of sia's face" and another one wrote, "My friend's dad while watching Sia perform: she don't have any face."
During the rehearsals, Sia expressed that she is happy that the four talented finalists will be singing her songs.
"I stood before these kids and they were singing songs that I had written -- and I kinda wanted to cry," Sia admitted to Mail Online. "It was much more meaningful than I had anticipated. It was really quite moving."
Sia also performed her new song "Cheap Thrills" during the American Idol show with three dancers. Watch the video of her performance below.
