Heejun Han sings A Song for You by Leon Russell. Heejun....finally! Perfect song choice for him and a great performance. I love funny Heejun, but I love talented singer/artist Heejun even more. Loved his performance!
Hollie Cavanagh sings Jesus, Take the Wheel by Carrie Underwood. I'm not sure I liked it as much as Jennifer, but I liked it more than Randy and probably a little more than Steven.
DeAndre Brackensick sings Sometimes I Cry by Eric Benet and gets a standing "O" from the judges. I loved it! I was just typing my observation that he reminds me so much of his Purpleness when I heard Steven remark that he could give "Prince" a run for his money! lol! This is by far Deandre's best performance of the season. And I'm not just saying that because his performance reminded me of you know who. :)
Jessica Sanchez sings Sweet Dreams by Beyoncé. I'm a huge fan of Jessica and for the most part I thought she did a great job, but I don't know if it was her best performance of the season. I did like how she tried to make the song her own though.
Phillip Phillips sings Still Rainin by Jonny Lang and he simply nailed it! And what a cool compliment that Stevie Nicks gave to him and he deserves all the accolades. Love his soulful performance. Like Colton, I think he can record this song and it would be a hit! And he's cute too!
Joshua Ledet sings Without You by Mariah Carey and what a beautiful performance. I loved it.
Elise Testone sings Whole Lotta Love by Robert Plant and she blew the roof off with her performance. Finally, someone to rock it out! I would say that this is the best performance of the night and probably of the season. She can record this song and it would be a hit. I loved it! Well earned standing O. And I love the bell bottoms!
Here's how I rated tonight's performances: Elise Testone, Phillip Phillips, Deandre Brackensick, Colton Dixon, Joshua Ledet, Jessica Sanchez, Heejun Han, Skylar Laine and Hollie Cavanagh.
And here's how I rated tonight's Group performances: Colton/Phillip/Elise, Heejun/Deandre/Joshua and Hollie/Jessica/Skylar.
I thought that Stevie Nicks did a great job in mentoring the Idols tonight. All the idols did so well tonight and it's so hard to even think about one of them leaving tomorrow.
And that's my Recap. Keep on Rocking AI . . .
