American Idol Lucy Love has been pursuing her dream of becoming a successful musician since childhood.
Lucy Love, a 28-year-old resident of Holly Grove, Arkansas, recently passed her first audition on American Idol.
Love’s performance in the show’s 21st season premiere episode included renditions of “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” and “A Song for You”.
Love shared that she comes from one family of people who never had the chance to fulfill their dreams, and with no father in her life, her mother was in and out of her and her siblings’ lives.
However, Love explained that music is her refuge and the only area where she feels confident.
The American Idol judging panel, which consisted of Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, gave Love three yeses, allowing her to move on to Hollywood.
The 21st season of American Idol premiered on ABC on February 19, featuring a two-hour episode featuring 14 contestants, including Lucy Love, competing to advance to the next round.
Ryan Seacrest hosts the 21st season of American Idol.
The competition will also feature participants in the Showcase Rounds to qualify for the final 24.
The contestants perform live in front of an American audience and try to collect the maximum number of votes to win the competition.
Fans can watch new episodes of American Idol on ABC every Sunday at 8 p.m. ET.
The two-hour episodes will be available to stream on the network’s website and Hulu a day after the television premiere.
Who is Lucy Love?
Lucy Love is a single mother of two children aged three and two.
Lucy Love, a talented musician, has been composing songs since she was a child. She was passionate about singing, but admitted that she was only occasionally focused as a child.
Lucy struggled with focus as a teenager and dropped out of high school in the 10th grade. She then moved to Memphis and hung out with friends.
Finally, Lucy realized she had to do something meaningful with her life. She got her GED and enrolled at Arkansas Baptist College, where she received her bachelor’s degree in music.

Love will perform two songs during her audition, including Marvin Gaye’s “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” and another undisclosed song.
During a preview of the show, Katy Perry praised Love saying: “There’s a young woman named Lucy Love. She sings for her life.”
Love’s journey on American Idol has only just begun, and it’ll be interesting to see how she performs in future rounds of the competition.
Despite being rejected by American Idol several times, Lucy refused to give up on her dream.
