BALTIMORE — A contestant from Baltimore is moving on to the top 24 on American Idol.

23-year-old Katyrah Love works as a homeless youth support facilitator.

Love belted out her rendition of Chaka Khan and Rufus' 'Sweet Thing' in Monday night's competition. Love said her voice was "iffy" before her performance, but that didn't stop her from giving her all.

The judges complimented Love on her personality and her voice, but claimed her last few performances were not "flawless". Despite the judges' critiques, Love moves on to the next round.

The 23-year-old shared her excitement on Instagram and said she's happy to represent Baltimore.

You can watch Katyrah Love's latest performance right here. American Idol airs right here on WMAR on Sunday and Monday nights at 8 pm.
