American Idol

Wonders never cease on "American Idol." Last week rocker David Cook could do no wrong, fans were in a frenzy because they wanted to get rid of the hand-waving throng that stands in front of the stage, and dreadlocked hippie Jason Castro just couldn't seem to get it right although everyone knew he could.

That all changed Tuesday night, however, when Castro literally had the audience standing stock still with his rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." It was pleasant to see the audience not swaying during his song, fun to watch Castro play the ukulele, and even more wonderful to hear his pure voice.

The hand-waving and hand-clapping did return later, however, during the night's performances in which contestants sang inspirational songs. Unfortunately for David Cook, who has been getting hotter and hotter each week, his rendition of "Innocent" by Our Lady Peace failed to inspire the judges.

The songs the contestants sang, in hopes of inspiring America, included:

Michael Johns: ''Dream On,'' Aerosmith

Syesha Mercado: ''I Believe,'' Fantasia

Jason Castro: ''Somewhere Over the Rainbow,'' Israel ''Iz'' Kamakawiwo'ole

Kristy Lee Cook: ''Anyway,'' Martina McBride

David Cook: ''Innocent,'' Our Lady Peace

Carly Smithson: ''The Show Must Go On,'' Queen

David Archuleta: ''Angels,'' Robbie Williams

Brooke White: ''You've Got a Friend'' James Taylor
