Reed Grimm Moves, Drums Like Jagger on American Idol

by at . Comments

Reed Grimm kicked off the first live American Idol show with serious energy. Or serious drumming, we should say.

Indeed, the confident contestant didn't just show off his Jagger-like moves in this Adam Levine cover; he also demonstrated his versatility - drawing comparisons to Casey Abrams in the process - by moving around on stage and taking on a drum set at one point. It was different and entertaining, that's for sure.

Was it on par vocally with Phillips Phillips? No. But we expect Grimm to advance to the finals. Will you be voting for him?


I loved Reed Grimm. He has the whole pkg. as American Idol judges say. I voted for him, because I think he has everything an Idol should have. I was so disappointed that he was voted off. He can sing, dance, play, the piano, and drums, and had the looks as well. I can't believe they didn't let him continue. Reed if you ever see this; don't let this stop you from becomming that performer that you were meant to be. You've got it all, and there are many others out there that think the same way.
