Mia Matthews Advances Into The Top 10 On American Idol

Country singer Mia Matthews delivered a stunning performance of Miranda Lambert’s “Over You” on Monday night’s (April 22) episode of American Idol.

The greater public first met Mia on a different show…The Voice.

Mia, her mother Tara, and her sister Jacy competed on The Voice in 2020 as the trio Worth the Wait. They joined Blake Shelton’s team and made it to the Top 17 before they were eliminated.

Both Mia and Jacy auditioned for the current season of American Idol. Mia performed “No Place That Far” by Sara Evans, while Jacy sang Kris Kristofferson’s “Help Me Make It Through the Night.”

The sisters received Golden Tickets to Hollywood. Jacy was sadly eliminated during Hollywood Week, but Mia advanced.

Mia has continued to excel on Idol. On April 22, she was revealed to be a member of the Top 10.
