When it comes to contestants on “American Idol,” most are there to hone their craft and seek advice from judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan. However, a few hopeful Idols do have unique enough skill sets to impart some new learning to the established judges.
Brielle Rathbun is an 18-year-old choreographer from Johnson City, Tennessee, so the second she stepped into the room Perry had her offering up new options for Bryan’s go-to stage move— the hip thrust. Bryan could pull-off the new move, but the movements are a little exaggerated for his set. Probably.
By the time Rathbun actually sang the judges were smitten and she did get a ticket to Hollywood.
