Tonight’s theme on American Idol is “Now & Then” and we’ll see the same seven competitors take on two songs. Last week, the judges saved Jessica Sanchez in a last minute use of their only save of the season. If you’ve missed last week’s elimination, you can read that recap here. Of course, tonight we are recapping the show LIVE at this link.
Left in the competition are Phillip Phillips, Joshua Ledet, Hollie Cavanagh, Jessica Sanchez, Skylar Laine, Elise Testone and Colton Dixon. There are no more saves, so the competition really has to bring it to avoid elimination.
On tonight’s show, Joshua Ledet is performing I Believe by Fantasia.
WATCH THE VIDEO:
It’s not a bad song choice for him. He’s got a lot of soul inside of him, so we can dig it.
Randy: He loved that he picked the song that he believed in. He’s one of the most gifted singers on this show. He pulled back with that song because the feeling and the lyric was something he believed in.
Jennifer: He leaves it all on the stage every time. It’s all of him. It’s amazing to watch and she feels blessed to watch.
Steven: It’s another song that’s a stepping stone for him to win the show.
