On tonight’s (April 11) episode of ‘American Idol,’ the Top 7 brought songs from 2010 until today. While we did a double take at first because 2010 seems like, well, yesterday, it turns out quite a few great songs have been released in the past two years. With Akon coming
Last week we saw Phillip Phillips asserting his individual style, both musically and fashionably (remember the gray shirt Tommy Hilfiger wasn’t too keen on?) This week, that individuality paid off in a big way as the blue-eyed charmer took on Jonny Lang’s ‘Still Rainin” and garnered compliments every step of the way.
She’s the tiny girl with the giant voice that leaves everyone tilting their heads and asking, “Where does that come from?” On a night when many contestants have faced criticism, Hollie Cavanagh had to follow contestant Joshua Ledet, who got a three-judge standing ovation and left Jennifer Lopez exclaiming that it was the best thing she’s seen on ‘American Idol‘ — ever.
If you’re a 16-year-old in tonight’s episode of ‘American Idol,’ not only do you have the challenge of proving yourself despite your young age, you also have to sing a song from your 1995 birth year — a time when some of the biggest singing divas were at their peak. Tonight, Shannon Magrane took a bite out of the Mariah Carey / Boyz II Men collaboration ‘One Sweet Day,’ and after terrifying the judges with her choice, she pleasantly surprised them.
Audience favorite Phillip Phillips had a rough week to say the least. The young guitarist with the endearing voice was rushed to the hospital late last week for kidney stones. But, don’t worry America, that didn’t stop him from making it to his rehearsal to work with guest judges will.i.am and record label executive Jimmy Iovine and blow them both away.
Once the lights came up after Jessica Sanchez‘ mind-blowing performance of Whitney Houston‘s ‘I Will Always Love You,’ we were kind of wondering what unfortunate soul would have to follow. But when we saw that it was fan favorite Phillip Phillips, we knew he could hold his own. Phillips brought his acoustic guitar, his baby blue eyes and his musical soul to the stage tonight for Stevie Wonder‘s ‘Superstition,’ and the result was a stellar performance.
Favorite soulstress Elise Testone wields the power in her gravelly voice to wrap an entire audience into whatever she sings, but this week she struggled to sieze the moment and left judges feeling lukewarm. Testone, who wowed us last week with her take on Adele‘s ‘One and Only’ just couldn’t quite get there with late pop diva Whitney Houston‘s ‘I’m Your Baby Tonight.’
With only two girls left to perform, Jessica Sanchez took the ‘American Idol‘ stage tonight to chat first with Ryan Seacrest about the emotional week she’s had while losing her voice and having to visit the doctor. When asked how she thought her voice would hold up for her performance, the 16-year-old San Diego native was obviously apprehensive.
Staten Island’s Brielle Von Hugel just might be one of the youngest contestants on ‘American Idol‘ this season (she’s only 17), but girl proved tonight that she’s got the pipes it takes to become a frontronner in the competition.
