When 14-year-old Vivian Hicks knew she killed it with her version of “Unsteady” by X Ambassadors

“I love the way that you said ‘Thank you’ before we clapped,” laughs singer-songwriter Shania Twain in the young singer’s audition clip. But hey, with a voice like hers, Vivian Hicks should be confident AF. Yes queen!


When Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine changed “Ain’t Easy” and producer Ryan Tedder was SHOOK

Tensions run high in the studio when Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine essentially rewrite “Ain’t Easy.” Scott Borchetta struggles to keep a straight face watching the exchange between the ambitious young artists and an unimpressed Ryan Tedder in the clip below. Awkward!


When The Static Shift transported us back to the ’70s with their psychedelic style

There’s no shortage of style on this season of The Launch though alternative rock trio The Static Shift took it to a whole new era. The band’s groovy aesthetic makes their audition clip below look straight from the ’70s. Rock on!


When Sariyah Hines brought Fergie to tears singing “Tennessee Whiskey”

Not many 15-year-olds can boast that their voice brings pop sensation Fergie to tears, but Sariyah Hines can. “We just went to church,” Borchetta exclaims following Hines’ performance in the clip below. Preach!


When Julia Michaels was flirty with Zack Lane and he didn’t know what to do

Nineteen-year-old singer songwriter Zack Lane wows the mentors with his voice but leaves them craving audience interaction. Borchetta tries to remedy this by pointing out Julia Michaels’ heart eyes for Lane, though the extra attention just leaves him blushing. Awwwww!


When Alessia Cara made a surprise appearance to mentor the young artists

On this especially young episode of The Launch Scott Borchetta enlists Grammy Award-winning Alessia Cara on set as a surprise mentor. The 21-year-old singerongwriter gives the teenage artists the 411 on what it’s like being a pop star.

Relive these moments and more this Saturday February 24 with a marathon of The Launch starting at 10am/7am ET on Much.
