Elise Testone Showers American Idol with "Whole Lotta Love"

by at . Comments

Elise Testone took on a major American Idol challenge last night.

The singer - who has been as up and down as any on season 11; in the bottom three on week; atop the rankings the following week - didn't shy away from Led Zepplin's "Whole Lotta Love" on an evening where finalists could choose their own track to cover.

Testone showed off her range on the track - described by Randy Jackson as "the hardest song in the world to sing" - rocking out and displaying impressive vocal maturity and stage presence. What did you think of the performance? Is it up par with Phillip Phillips for best of the night?

We post. You decide.

OMG! OMG! OMG!! That's all I could say for hours! I called evynoere I know that knows and loves real music, & can appreciates voice like hers. She has soul and sexyness, she can melt any any man away with her sulty voice! She is the entire package!! Wow! Musicians love her voice! Non-musicians will vote her off, that's basically how Idol works. Amy W. would not have won Idol, of course not! Elise doesn't need to win, she's already won! Thank you Lord for Elise! There is a GOD!!

I think Elise has an amazing voice, but I feel like every week she has a poor attitude. She should win with that voice,she just needs to realize she isn't going to get votes by arguing with the judges and always looking like someone just pee'd in her Cheerios.

This is AMAZING! I got this album for Christmas when I was 12 and this song blew me away - I never heard it done by anyone other than Robert Plant that sounded even remotely good. Tonight I was shocked - Elise just made this song her biotch! OUT-FREAKIN STANDING!!!! Elise just went to the top of my list! Josh is the most talented and Jessica may have the best chance overall and Phillip the most original but Elise won me over tonight!
ROCK ON Elise!!! YOU ARE MY IDOL!!!!
