American Idol took a trip to the 1980s last night, as the remaining finalists might as well have broken out their neon tube socks and stonewashed jeans.

Forgive this broken-record-sounding statement, but: Phillip Phillips put on the best performance of any American Idol male last night.

The Dave Matthews wannabe nailed a version of Billy Joel's "Moving Out," sticking to his typical guitar use but adding almost a bit of anger to the cover. He definitely brought an edge to this slowed-down version of a classic.
