Fifteen-year-old Tristan McIntosh keeps blowing us away.

While performing on the first live show of the final season of American Idol, McIntosh stood on stage in front of millions of people and brought her A-game.

Taking on Dan + Shay’s No. 1 hit song “Nothin’ Like You“, McIntosh showed off her vocal range and amazing stage presence.

It’s hard to believe that she’s only fifteen, and the judges agree!! Jennifer Lopez and guest judge Kelly Clarkson had to ask her again, “You’re only fifteen, right?”

 Keith Urban pointed out how vocally challenging the song is, and just taking on a song like that is gutsy.

While the judges weren’t all in agreement that it was her strongest performance yet, we’re sure she will be coming next week better than ever. 

Clarkson suggested she sing a Trisha Yearwood song. Perhaps “She’s In Love With The Boy”? Or “How Do I Live”? Or even “Walkaway Joe”? Tristan singing Trisha would be magical, no matter the song!

Watch her performance of “Nothin’ Like You” below.
