Keith Urban’s prediction was right: Nick Fradiani fans did drive the “American Idol” contestant’s “What Hurts the Most” up the iTunes chart.
While the lack of voting impact, let alone a bonus, gave it effectively no chance of performing the way a typical “The Voice” single does, it is currently the highest-charting of Wednesday’s five “Idol” recordings.
As of press time, Fradiani’s take on the Rascal Flatts hit was #81 on iTunes’ all-genre sales chart.
Rayvon Owen’s “Believe” currently follows at #142, while Clark Beckham’s contentious take on “Your Man” is sitting at #173.
At #257, “Empire State of Mind (Part II – Broken Down)” earns Jax the lowest position of the four remaining contestants.
Eliminated contestant Tyanna Jones, however, claims a dramatically lower position than that.
“Run the World (Girls),” which served as her final performance, is not presently within the Top 1500.
