On tonight’s episode of American Idol, all of the remaining contestants are taking on songs from this decade. Last week, we saw the elimination of DeAndre Brackensick, after sharing the bottom two with Elise Testone. If you’re unable to tune into tonight’s show, we are recapping it right here.
Left in the competition are Phillip Phillips, Joshua Ledet, Hollie Cavanagh, Jessica Sanchez, Skylar Laine, Elise Testone and Colton Dixon.
Tonight, Elise is performing Lady Gaga’s You & I and she’s got the coveted pimp spot. She’s already shown that she’s got the chops when she sang with Phillip earlier, so let’s hope she does well with this performance. Unfortunately, she tried to go for one of Gaga’s big notes and it fell flat.
WATCH THE VIDEO:
Randy: America, Elise is back! That was the perfect song for her. She needed a moment and got one tonight. Dope vocals right there. Beautiful.
Jennifer: She let go, but had control at the same time. She’s a closer.
Steven: She took a song that was effortless and turned it into genius. Beautiful.
Was this your favorite performance of the night so far? Does Elise have what it takes to become the next American Idol? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments below.
