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.
