During season 12 of “American Idol,” Adam Sanders auditioned and made it to the top 50 during Hollywood week. But, after negative comments surfaced online, Sanders struggled. Now, Sanders is back as Ada Vox and “through all of the negativity I have managed to build myself up as a new person, a stronger person. I have recreated myself in ways that I could not have imagined.”
As soon as Ada walked into her audition Katy Perry exclaimed, “own the room. You better work it out. You better leave it all on the floor.”
By the time Ada explained that during the day she is a waitress and at night she’s a “professional part-time woman by night.” Katy was literally speechless. Ada did explain that she was on the show before as Adam Sanders and the judges checked out the before/after pictures with much enthusiasm.
Finally, Ada started to sing “House of the Rising Sun” and it was insane. Her range was also insane. She made it on to Hollywood.
