Summit County’s Kaibrienne Richins wows judges, advances in ‘American Idol’ top 8

LOS ANGELES — In last night’s episode of “American Idol,” the top 10 hopefuls, including Summit County-raised Kaibrienne Richins, mentored by country music icon Shania Twain, performed tracks from their birth years.

During the live broadcast, the audience’s votes and a last-minute judges’ pick determined which contestants would advance to the top eight, and Richins made it through. She performed “Here Without You” by Three Doors Down and received high praise from judge Luke Bryan.

In the next episode on Monday, April 29, live voting will again determine who progresses to the top six, with the judges throwing an additional lifeline, selecting one more contestant to continue, rounding out the top seven.

How to vote

Fans looking to support their favorite singers can cast their votes in three ways:
1. Online at (account registration required).
2. Through the “American Idol” app, available for download via the App Store or Google Play Store.
3. Via text to “21523,” each contestant having a specific number to be used for voting.

Each method allows up to ten votes per contestant.
