Hollie Cavanagh Turns Up Her Tempo on American Idol

by at .

American Idol was chock full of surprises last night.

Fans were treated to Skylar Laine slowing things down for once and singing a beautiful rendition of "Wind Beneath My Wings" to close the show, while Hollie Cavanagh took to the stage prior and went in the opposite direction.

Mixing up a performance from her usual ballads, Cavanagh went with "What a Feeling" from Flashdance and shook her booty right in front of the judges' table at one point. It was a welcome change, although it came across as a bit forced. Hollie didn't seem comfortable in her fringed dress, moving and shaking instead of just... singing.

What did you think?
