Tonight the Idols perform songs from the current decade and guest mentor Akon joins Jimmy Iovine to help the Idols prepare for their performance.
And here's how the evening went:
Skylar Laine sings Didn't You Know How Much I Loved You by Kellie Pickler. Although I'm not familiar with this song, I really enjoyed her performance. It was a perfect song choice.
Colton Dixon sings Love the Way You Lie by Skylar Grey. I loved it.
Jessica Sanchez sings Stuttering by Jazmine Sullivan. Who? What? I had never heard of this artist or this song before. She totally nailed it! This song really demonstrates how good she really is. Love the staging, love the scanting, love the runs, loved her performance!
Joshua Ledet sings Runaway Baby by Bruno Mars. I loved his energy and his performance. The horns in the background was pretty cool too.
Hollie Cavanagh sings Perfect by Pink. Good for her. I thought she did a much better job tonight then last week. It was a great song choice.
Phillip Phillips sings Maroon 5's Give a Little More. I have to agree with the judges on this one. I enjoyed his performance as always and maybe that's the issue. There was no big wow factor, like in Jessica's performance.
Elise Testone sings You and I by Lady Gaga and I thought she did so much better than last week. I never noticed this before but I think she kind of looks like Mariah Carey. I agreed that playing the drums would have distracted her from her singing, but it would've been cool to show how multi-talented she really is.
And that's my Recap. Keep on Rocking AI . . .
