Abi Carter Still Shocked She Is On ‘American Idol’

Gaining over 10,000 likes, fans praised Carter and her performance. “Definitely should be the next American Idol! I called it from the first time I heard her audition. Just like when I heard Carrie Underwood’s audition. We knew back then she would be the next American Idol too.” Another fan added, “You absolutely killed both performances last night. Over the past few weeks, I think you’ve really come into your own…you fully deserve to win this season.”

Having covered songs by Adele and Evanescence, Carter is still somewhat shocked she is on American Idol. She told the Desert Sun, “I shocked myself this past week. I was internally screaming the entire time, like, ‘Am I actually doing this right now? Is this really what’s going on? Am I the person on stage doing these movements?’ It seems like what my 12-year-old self dreamed that I would be. That was the music I listened to.”

With only a few episodes left, don’t miss American Idol, airing Sunday at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
