INSANE Vocals During Hollywood Duets Round from Just Sam and Sheniel Maisonet – American Idol 2020


As duet night draws to a close, there have been some exceptional performances, but it’s also been an exhausting ordeal for many competitors. Running on fumes a little bit. Who spent all night rehearsing their songs for their one shot in front of the judges and many were pushed to their limits. They don’t make it easy. Oh, I know it’s hard. Including duet partners, Just Sam and Sheniel Maisonet. Also, I don’t know. Am I singing it
in a completely different key because the key that I’ve been rehearsing it in is G minor. All right. So are you guys clear on the on the arrangement, then? No. Still not? It’s just a lot to do. That’s why. Have you seen Just Sam? After struggling through their first rehearsal, Sheniel finds herself without a partner as Just Sam reaches her breaking point. There’s a lot of tension and a lot of
nerves. Have you guys seen Just Sam? She was
like, “I need this to be good. I need this to be good.” And I was like, “I know, I know
you’re stressed.”. I hear everybody out there and I was just looking around at everyone and it just made me emotional because I’m like, I’m not doing enough. Just Sam? What’s wrong? I’m sad. You’re stressed. Don’t be stressed. You can’t, you can’t let these things get the best of you. We all want to do good here and you’re going to do good. I know she’s tired and we just have to like kind of like keep our hopes up and stay positive. I’m sorry. I mean, I just think what you need in these times is. Friends, you know, a friend that cares about you and somebody who’s there to tell you it’s OK, it’s gonna be OK. Sometimes that’s all you need. I feel so much better after that. So what happened with you guys? Basically, we just kind of surrendered to the stress. Which I don’t think is very good. I think sometimes just the body needs a breakdown. Well, let me say this to you, two, that everybody here with a partner is going through some sort of stress. They haven’t gone to their little fight yet. You guys got yours over with. And after a few hours of sleep, Just Sam and Sheniel, have one last rehearsal before facing the judges. At this stage in the competition, nobody can afford to miss. No, we can’t afford to mess up at all. If that performance was in front of the judges, I don’t think I would’ve made it through, she would have. But not me. This audition, it would change my life, my family’s life. It would change everything. As the performance draws near, Just Sam’s anxiety is overwhelming. How are you feeling? Feeling all right? My head is just still pounding. Yeah, your head is pounding? Yeah. I don’t feel okay, because I know that I’m going to mess up. Alright, gather your breath up. This audition. It’s super important to me. I have to I have to do it. I have to make it. I have to. You’re just getting better and better and better and you’re getting more and more, more, more confidence and you’re starting to believe, believe, believe, believe. You know, Sam, I couldn’t take my eyes off watching you perform. The first note too. But honestly, you’re giving us drama. You understand me to sing the song is one thing, to act the song. Give us what you’re actually feeling is everything. Thank you. Well, you girls are fighters. And you have fought your way to the next round. Congratulations. Oh my god, really? Both of you are going through! I don’t feel like this is real. I feel like I’m dreaming my head is pounding because I don’t think I even breathed up there. Do you want to go to dinner, hang out a couple more hours together? No! No! I don’t want to! Oh my God, this is life changing.

  1. Sam might have issues with self confidence off stage,but when she's on stage all that goes out the window and she shines.

  2. My anxiety and stage fright is exactly why I can't be a professional singer. But their performance was dope.

  3. I feel for Sam. Self sabotage is real shit, especially when you don’t believe that you deserve the things you…believe…you deserve. It’s a mindfuck disconnect. You is a incredible performer, with a spirit of solid gold. I hope she realizes it, and not get so attached to the idea of what will happen if she loses. You can’t miss what you never had darling.

  4. I don't struggle with it but I know anxiety isn't a joke. I'm glad Just Sam was able to still deliver a great performance with Sheniel.

  5. Titles the video "Insane Vocals" literally shows ZERO of the actual duet. You're channel is absolutely worthless without actually showing the contestants singing. I'd rather watch The Voice πŸ™„πŸ˜’

  6. Just Sam I’ve been there and at the time you are going through it ask yourself if its gonna take you to the top. You know the answer. Sounds so easy and sometimes it only needs one question dear Just Sam

  7. Wow! This is great TV. I love Just Sam and I now love the girl she sang with. Their voices were angelic. I cry Every time I hear Just Sam with heart warmth.

  8. Sheniel is a good friend. I hope just Sam can realize she’s a star! Girl you sing in front of thousands of people on the subway! YOU GOT THIS!!!

  9. i love how sheniel said that in those stressful times, having a genuine friend is what you need the most, not a competitor.

  10. stop f*cking crying all the god damn time. #just quit already. sick of seeing Just Sam girl being always like this.

  11. i love that they included "it was in me" from Avril Lavigne's recent album in the background. Such an underrated masterpiece!

  12. That’s not fair that they won’t post Vivian Hicks’s audition!! They don’t air her audition because she’s already famous?? Well, what about Nick Merico!! He’s famous singer and actor too!! But his audition aired !!! THATS NOT FAIRRRR. Her audition totally deserves to be aired or posted on YouTube.
    THIS AMERICAN IDOL SEASON IS HORRIBLE. smh

  13. Good video representing the pressure the contestants are under. Both good vocalist πŸ˜ŽπŸ€™πŸ‘πŸ‘

  14. How can Sam be so nervous when she literally sings in front of New Yorkers on A Full Subway Car? Come on girl get it together I think Sam is one of the best talents here!

  15. Just Sam is a pleasure to listen to; I couldn't keep my eyes off of her. Her vocals are rich and beautiful. They did compliment one another though.

  16. If she don’t get her emotions in check the judges may vote her in but once it comes to the viewers they will vote her out!

  17. I am happy for these two girls, but seriously, how is it that Idol auditions are still going on in the midst of social distancing due to Coronavirus??? I read somewhere that judge Katy Perry had tested positive!

  18. Can we just give Sheniel credit for being such a good person and supportive when she could’ve ditched Just Sam! Love them 😊

  19. What shitty editing! Building up the entire video about JustSam’s performance anxiety and then not even showing her sing. WTF???

  20. Realise that Sam comes from poverty and abandonment from her parent's. But, she IS ready and just needs the proper support! And because the judges realised that and are supporting her she is persevering! As the other singer with her said "sometimes you just need a friend". Her encouragement got them both through a ruff spot! So what if Sam cries and has some anxiety! She gets the job done and as she excels she will get better and better and more confident! Do y'all even know what it takes to sing on trains for money? She isn't weak by any definition! She's the underdog! Don't get it twisted! Sam is the GOAT in the making! Just wait! πŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ‘πŸ‘‘πŸ™ŒπŸ”‘πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†

  21. Where's the singing!? C'mon American Idol admins. Y'all can do better. The show is supposed to be about the singing. And to tell you that this video was a disappointment is an understatement. It was such a beautiful performance and you give us 10seconds of it!? Pathetic to try and add just drama for a viewers rating. Stick to the basic profile of the show and give us music. C'mon.

  22. I really admire Sheniel's attitude. When the host asked them what was going on…Sheniel used "we" stressed out insteaf of "she". That character will bring her a deserved respect…πŸ‘

  23. Please @americanIdol put the full presentation so that more people who do not have cable can see their wonderful presentation of the two ….. not seen on you tube complete …… please production ……. .the only thing they have put from @shenielofficial why? being that before the duets she sang … her audition did not put her either …… I see it as very unfair😒😒😒😒 I would like her fans and people from all over the world to see her effort and what she has been through and his mother, we already know the story of Sam they have put enough and repeatedly of her …. please ask them to put on their presentations … of Sheniel … as they did with other boys and girls and on repeated occasions … . ..it is very sad to see this … I want you to consider my request ……… @ katyperry @lionrichie @lukebryan …. GOD BLESS YOU πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’

  24. I so much love the way she says am sorry and embrace wow make me feel her struggle. God will take you through.
