Grace picked “Elastic Heart” by Sia, “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, and “Into the Unknown” by Idina Menzel & Aurora (from Frozen II) as the songs to perform during Top 16, Top 12, and Top 10 rounds respectively.
As for her Top 7 performances, Grace sang “Fix You” by Coldplay and “When We Were Young” by Adele. Singing a duet with Willie Spence and the other two songs in Top 4, she reached the Top 3.
During the season finale, Grace performed “All By Myself” by Celine Dion and “I Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston. Despite giving it all, she couldn’t secure enough votes to win American Idol.
