After last week's shocker of Joshua, Jessica and Elise landing in the bottom three and Jessica facing elimination, I was really looking forward to tonight's show.
With the theme songs from Now and Then, the Idols performed two songs tonight. First up, the contestants sing a song from the year 2010 and on. And here's how it went:
Hollie Cavanah sings Adele's Rolling in the Deep and I thought it was her best performance in the competition. Like Randy, I also felt that this was the first time I had as JLO says "goosies".
Colton Dixon sings Lady Gaga's Bad Romance. I thought it was a step down from his past performances. :(
Joshua Ledet sings Fantasia's I Believe. Great performance. I loved Fantasia's performance a bit better, but I thought he did the song justice.
Next up, the contestants will tackle the soul classics:
Hollie Cavanagh sings Dusty Springfield's Son of A Preacher Man. I really enjoyed it. She looks so much more relaxed this week and did really well on both performances.
Colton Dixon sings Earth, Wind and Fire's September. Unlike the judges, I actually liked his performance. It was much better than his first performance, which the judges liked better. Go figure.
Elise Testone sings Marvyn Gaye's Let's Get It On. I love this song and I loved her performance. I think the judges were a little too tough on her. I really hope she doesn't land in the bottom as a result.
Jessica Sanchez sings Otis Redding's Try a Little Tenderness. I think I liked her first performance better. Sorry. :( But she is very talented and so I hope she still moves on.
Skylar Laine sings her version of Marvin Gaye's Heard it Through the Grapevine. I enjoyed her performance. She definitely brings her Country flair to each song and each genre that she tackles.
Joshua Ledit sings Sam Cooke's A Chance Is Gonna Come. Brilliant!
This week's elimination is going to be heartbreaking no matter who it is. But on the positive side, I think each of these contestants will definitely have Post Idol success to look forward to.
And now, I'm off to vote!
And that's my Recap. Keep on Rocking AI . . .
