During the latest episode of ‘American Idol,’ tensions ran high as contestants battled for their spot in the Top 10. Among them, Will Mosely showcased his country roots with a powerful rendition of Chris Stapleton’s “Starting Over.”

In the intense competition on Monday night, the final 12 contestants faced off, aiming to secure their place in the next stage of the season. The show revealed that the Top 12 would be performing songs that had reached No. 1 on Billboard’s charts in the past, with guidance from guest mentor Meghan Trainor.

Mosley’s performance drew high praise from judge Lionel Richie, who complimented the rising country singer’s transformation during the song.

“What I love about that performance is you went from zero to 100 in less than 2 seconds,” Richie exclaimed. “The song was right, the rhythm was right, and then your voice came in, and that was the end of the ball game. You did an amazing job.”

Since his audition on ‘American Idol,’ the Georgia Southern University graduate has been making significant waves in the music industry. Will Moseley’s original country song, “Gone For Good,” not only won over the judges during his audition but also landed him his first Billboard hit. The tune made a powerful entrance onto the Country Digital Song Sales chart, debuting at an impressive No. 13, as reported by Forbes.
