American Idol Final 4 Review: California, There They Went!

by at . Comments

Note to American Idol: Who the heck is picking the weekly themes this season?!?

With the assignments growing more and more random, last night the final four finalists - Phillip Phillips, Hollie Cavanagh, Joshua Ledet and Jessica Sanchez - were tasked with singing on track by a California native band or artist; and one they wish they had written themselves.

Ummm... okay. Let's rundown the first set of performances and then let's vote on our favorite, shall we?

Phillip Phillips took on CCR and asked viewers one simply question: "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?" Well, have you?!?

Hollie Cavanagh went on a Journey via one of this group's all-time classics. Did she do justice to "Faithfully?"

We only have the audio for Joshua Ledet and his take on "You Raise Me Up," but it's easy enough to hear this man's talent, isn't it?

Jessica Sanchez wrapped up this portion of the evening with Etta James "Steal Away." What do you think of the cover?
