American Idol: Season 10, Episode 26 :: Top 8

After last week’s shocking elimination, the Top 8 on American Idol Season 10 realize that no one is safe. On April 13, 2011 they performed music from the movies, hoping to win America’s hearts.

First up was Paul MacDonald with Old Time Rock and Roll by Bob Seger. The judges agreed, he killed it again. He is improving his performance week after week.

Lauren Alaina improved upon the original version of The Climb by Miley Cyrus. Randy thought that she made the song sound like it was written for her. But J-Lo still wants to see her push further.

Stefano Langone stunned the judges with his beautiful rendition of End of the Road by Boyz II Men. Randy said it was his best vocal performance yet. But could the title of the song choice predict his future in the competition?

Scotty McCreery returned to his country roots with I Cross My Heart by George Strait. At first J-Lo worried that he chose the wrong song. But by the end, all she could say was “wow.”

Ignoring the advice from his mentor, Casey Abrams sang Nat King Cole’s Nature Boy. And he proved that by sticking to his jazzy sound, he’ll impress the judges. In the end, he received a standing ovation.

Haley Reinhart sang Call Me by Blondie. Even though she’s been improving with each performance, this week was a bit of a slump. Randy said the song sounded karaoke at the beginning and it didn’t showcase her voice.

Jacob Lusk knocked the socks off the judges with his performance of Bridge Over Troubled Water from the film Pursuit of Happiness. Randy said he believes every word when Jacob sings. This performance had perfect harmony, and it even gave J-Lo chills.

Finally, James Durbin also ignored his mentor’s advice by performing the first heavy metal song ever on the American Idol stage—Sammy Hagar’s Heavy Metal. The judges and the audience loved it, and Randy was glad that James stuck to his guns.

American Idol Season 10 :: Jacob Lusk Singing Bridge Over Troubled Water



Last night, Stefano was saved from elimination again as he stood next to Paul McDonald in the bottom two. Paul went out on a high note, performing a Rod Stewart song while high-fiving his goodbye to all his fellow contestants. And he ended the song with his trademark cheesy smile.
