Powerful, emotional, moving; Ava August knows her musical strengths and plays to them on the American Idol stage for her Top 24 solo! Performing the 2021 hit song “Driver’s License” by Olivia Rodrigo, Ava stuns the judges with her “old soul” vibe. At just 15-years-old, Ava is definitely a force to be reckoned with!
Speaking of forces to be reckoned with, Ava August was paired with the one-and-only Josh Groban for her duet partner, and what a pair the two of them made! Beautifully complementing each other’s voices on stage, Ava and Josh sang Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now,” giving us a duet performance that will be hard to beat!
