16 year-old Madison Vandenburg from Cohoes, left judges Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie and Katy Perry speechless with her performance of Dan & Shay's hit song. "You rendered us speechless," Lionel Richie told Vandenburg after she flawlessly sang 'Speechless,' while playing the piano.
The praise kept coming with Katy Perry comparing Madison to Idol's first winner and predicting she could be next. "You gave me goosebumps. I thought there was a winner earlier but there might be a winner now. You could be the next Kelly Clarkson. You're a massive star."
