Son of Jolie Edwards Who Use to Perform With Keith Urban Gets Golden Ticket on ‘American Idol’ [RECAP VIDEOS]
The final American Idol auditions in Omaha kicked off with a reunion for Keith Urban. Quaid Edwards, whose mom use to perform with Keith, proved he got her talent. 15 year-old Madisen Walker channeled her inner Carrie Underwood with ‘Before He Cheats’ and Tessa Kate put her own spin on ‘Folsom Prison Blues.’
Quaid Edwards is the son of Jolie Edwards of Jolie and the Wanted. The band use to perform with Keith. Quaid did receive his golden ticket to Hollywood because of who his mother was, but because of his voice. Although raw, Quaid’s performance of ‘A Change is Gonna Come’ had the judges wanting to hear more.

The talent keeps getting younger. Even though Madisen Walker is only 15 year old, she took on a big song with Carrie Underwood’s ‘Before He Cheats.’ Keith and Jlo loved her but Harry Connick Jr was afraid she wasn’t ready for Hollywood and the heartbreak of being eliminated later would be worse than not sending her through. But as Keith pointed out, that’s all part of having a career in the music industry.

Tessa Kate made Johnny Cash proud with her unique version of ‘Folsom Prison Blues.’ She was compared to Loretta Lynn and Barbara Mandell with a classic timeless sound.

CJ Jones knows how to handle pressure. He sang ‘Stand By Me’ while Harry stood beside him. It was so good, Harry got into the groove and started dancing.
