The top six on American Idol were given two tasks on last night’s performance show:

  1. Cover a Queen classic.
  2. Cover any song your heart your heart desires.

The latter option led to tracks made famous by artists such as Jim Hendrix, Miley Cyrus and Dave Matthews. Who came out on top? Whose second round performance makes him/her deserving of your vote? Watch them all now and then cast it…

Jessica Sanchez initiated the second round of performances with a take on Luther Vandross. She just wants to “Dance With My Father,” people.

Skylar Laine then followed up a terrific version of “The Show Must Go On” with a flawless cover of “Tattoos on This Town.” She’s our favorite at this point.

Hollie Cavanagh didn’t reach far back for her selection, honoring Miley Cyrus with the following rendition of “The Climb.”

Joshua Ledet made India Arie proud with a lovely performance of “Ready For Love.”

Elise Testone making like Hendrix? The finalist actually pulled it off well with this cover of  “Bold As Love.”

And, finally, in the least surprising choice of the night, Phillip Phillips emulated Dave Matthews with “The Stone.”
