American Idol Performance Review: Great Britain, Great Performances?

by at . Comments

After traveling back to the 1960s for their first round of performances last night, the final five on American Idol traveled overseas.

They covered a slew of British pop songs, with Joshua Ledet once again leading the way and an interesting race to the bottom unfolding. Who will be eliminated this week? Watch the second set of Idol covers from this week and then vote on the best...

Hollie Cavanagh went all Leona Lewis on viewers, following up a version of "River Deep Mountain High" with this solid take on "Bleeding Love."

It was back to the guitar for Phillip Phillips for "Time of the Season." Compare this performance with his rendition of "The Letter" now.

Skylar Laine struggled a bit with her opening song, but did she make up for it with "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me? We think so.

Jessica Sanchez slowed it way down and told somebody out there: "You Are So Beautiful." It was an impressive follow-up to "Proud Mary."

But nothing could match Joshua Ledet on this night. Was "To Love Somebody" his best audition to date? Decide for yourself.



Im a 36 year old woman and Im very interested in tubal reerasvl. Although Im not quite sure of the exact procedure that was performed on me, I would love to have another child. My children are all teenagers now and I felt like I grew up with them as I raised them since I gave birth to my first child at the age of eighteen.I just want the opportunity to raise another child as an adult and enjoy being a mom with experiance. Also my fiance and I are yurning to have a child together.


so beautiful song


Phillip Phillips needs to get voted off. He is a rip off artist. Check out Dave Matthews version of Time of the Season. It is exactly the same. Phillip Phillips is choosing all these songs covered by DMB and copyng Dave's performance. Everyone else is original and they deserve to go through. The Judges obviously don't know he is ripping off Dave even if he is not doing a DMB song. I hope they get tuned in because the other contestants deserve to win over this poser. He is a pretender acting like he is an original.


Joshua has it in spades no pun intended but the public won't like his dis on stage last night


Hollie. Phillip. WOW. Rocked it. Made it their own. LOVED IT.


I thought Hollie was great last nite, and Jessica was fantastic...these 2 really stood out....I see Skylar or Phillips leaving tonite...both sucked....the finale at this point, i see both Hollie and Jessica.....

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

Paula Abdul [after Brooke White was eliminated on season seven]

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
