Grace Kinstler Performs Original Song ‘Love Someone’ on ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’
Grace Kinstler was chosen as the Encore performer on Live with Kelly and Ryan on Friday based on viewers’ votes. Grace placed third on American Idol this season, dazzling the audience with her original song “Love Someone.” It was only fitting that the 20-year-old singer from Illinois performed her single once again for America.

Kelly Ripa’s husband Mark Consuelos filled in for Ryan Seacrest during the show. Grace was accompanied by American Idol pianist Phredley Brown on the keys during this performance. This was a more stripped-back version of the song that really highlighted the range of Grace’s voice. She looked stunning in a grey bodycon dress.
After the performance, Ripa pointed out that Grace has one huge celebrity Instagram follower. Rapper Drake followed Grace on Instagram during her American Idol journey. Her boyfriend is the one who pointed this out to her and it is seriously so cool.
“I don’t know much about social media, I just know that that’s a very big deal,” Ripa said.
It has been an absolute whirlwind for Grace after American Idol wrapped up with a three-hour finale last week. She along with runner-up Willie Spence, and winner Chayce Beckham have all been doing a slew of interviews this week. Ripa asked Grace if she has managed to get any sleep since the finale.
“Not much sleeping but as people like to say in the industry you know I’m happy to be tired and working,” she replied.
