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.
