The top 11 American Idol contestants sang songs from [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Elton John[/lastfm] last night and if you’re like Bubba, you might not have even realized they were John’s songs!
One week ago, Casey Abrams was in danger of going home but then last night he came out and sang Your Song:
This was Randy’s reaction:
So excited he did well! He also got his hair cut and trimmed his beard and looked SO good!!!
James Durbin also had a phenomenal performance with Saturday Night’s Alright:
It was like being at a concert and Jennifer agreed:
Haley came out and sang Benny and the Jets:
And what a comeback she made!
Scotty McCreery sang Country Comfort:
And Steven was a fan:
Naima went reggae with I’m Still Standing:
But it didn’t work for the judges:
Paul had a rough night too…He sang Rocket Man:
Steven had fun with his flowered suit again:
But the judges were telling him to push it more..
Pia sang yet ANOTHER ballad…Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me…And Steven went after Randy a little:
Lauren Alaina sang Candle In The Wind and it was beautiful! And the judges said Stefano FINALLY kept his eyes open and connected more with the audience when he sang Tiny Dancer…Thia Magia sang Daniel and it still failed to truly impress the judges. She really needs to loosen up and put some excitement into her performances…IMHO. And Jacob sang Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word and they loved the last note….It WAS amazing…Seriously. But not a huge fan of Jacob’s. Great voice, just not for this competition…
