Last night’s episode of American Idol held some brilliant performances as well has “horrendous” ones. Everyone was required to sing a John Lennon and Paul McCartney song.See Also:
Syesha Mercado was the first to perform on Idol’s new stage. She sang “Got to Get You Into My Life.” Simon Cowell thought she looked nervous but loved the song choice. Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson agreed that the beginning of the song was rough and had pitch problems.
Next to perform was Chickezie who sang “She’s A Woman.” He put a sort of fiddle and rock twist on it and judges loved it.
Ramiele Malubay chooses “In My Life” and her performance is called “boring.” Jason Castro sings “If I Fell” and judges basically think he was OK, but not as good as last week. Carly Smithson sings “Come Together” and Simon says it is her first good song choice. The crowd loved it as did Paula and Randy.
David Cook’s rock version of “Eleanor Rigby” was called “brilliant” by Simon and Paula said there is “another horse in the race.”
Brooke White sings “Let It Be” while she plays the piano. She shows a lot of emotion and it paid off because all three judges thought it was heartfelt and Simon said it was one of the best performances of the night.
David Hernandez sang “I Saw Her Standing There,” but it didn’t really work for him. Judges thought too much was going on and he should have toned it down a little. Amanda Overmyer performed “You Cant Do That” and Simon said he couldn’t understand everything she said. Randy thought it was great.
Michael Johns performed “Across The Universe” and judges thought it was “sleepy.” Kristy Lee Cook’s country version of “Eight Days A Week” was called “horrendous” and was probably the worst performance of the night. Simon said she sounded like Dolly Parton on helium.
David Archuleta went last and sang “We Can Work It Out.” He forgot the lyrics at the beginning of the song but kept on singing. It was by far his worst performance of the season.
