For her second song of the evening on “American Idol”, Hollie Cavanagh is taking on “I Can’t Make You Love Me” by Bonnie Raitt. If you’re missing the show, you’re in luck, because we’re recapping it live at this link.
Left in the competition are Phillip Phillips, Joshua Ledet, Jessica Sanchez and Hollie Cavanagh. Who’s your favorite?
Steven Tyler said it’s not how you sing the song, but it’s how you say the words. He said it fell a little short. Jennifer Lopez said it’s easier to sing those songs if you’ve felt those things. She felt that Hollie brought emotion, but it had too much vibrato. Her vocal went off on this one. Randy Jackson said she’s a different singer than Bonnie Raitt and she needed a moment. There were no moments for him and it was the wrong song choice at the wrong moment.
