On tonight’s elimination episode of “American Idol”, Hollie Cavanagh has been eliminated from the competition. After putting on a somewhat lackluster performance, it didn’t seem to be that much of a surprise that she would be going home tonight. In case you’ve missed the show, we’ve recapped it here.
On Wednesday night’s performance episode of the show, Hollie took on “Faithfully” by Journey for her “California Dreamin'” theme. Randy Jackson said that she did Steve Perry proud with her rendition of the hit song. Jennifer Lopez commented that she has grown and that she’s ready to share her gift with everybody. Steven Tyler said that he has watched her blossom and that her creativity has come around.
Afterward, she covered Bonnie Raitt’s hit song, “I Can’t Make You Love Me”. Steven said it’s how you say the words in a song as opposed to how you sing it, but felt that it fell a little short. Jennifer said that the song had too much vibrato and that her vocals went off on the song. Randy added that she needed a moment and there were no moments for him. He also said that it was the wrong song choice for Hollie.
In the end, America agreed with the judges and decided that it was time for Hollie’s journey on the show to come to an end. Did you agree with the results? Or do you feel that she should’ve been in the top three?
