American Idol Performance of the Week: Michael Lynche

by at . Comments

On American Idol, he's known as "Big Mike."

This moniker, bestowed upon semifinalist Michael Lynche by Ryan Seacrest, refers to the former's massive stature. But it's also now appropriate for the impression made Lynche last night. It was BIG!

Belting out Kate Bush's "This Woman's Work," Lynch literally brought Kara DioGuardi to tears. She had to be comforted by Simon Cowell, while the crowd couldn't stop applauding.

Watch the performance below, and be warned Casey James: you're no longer the male favorite.
