American Idol: Season 10, Episode 32 :: Top 5

May 04, 2011

Last night, the Top 5 contestants on American Idol Season 10 performed two songs each—one current track, and another from their parents’ day. Episode 32 aired on May 4, 2011.

James Durbin took the stage first. He sang Closer to the Edge by 30 Seconds to Mars, and even though it sounded a little rough from home, the judges loved it. His second song, Without You by Harry Nilsson, had a few pitchy parts, but the judges agreed that the competition is his to lose.

Jacob Lusk struggled with his first song, No Air by Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown. The judges didn’t like that he chose a song with male and female parts. Randy doesn’t think this type of song is the right direction for him. Later, he redeemed himself with a tender rendition of Love Hurts by Nazareth.

Lauren Alaina had high energy with her first song, Flat on the Floor by Carrie Underwood. Randy said this genre is the perfect direction for her. She slowed it down for her second song with Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers. The judges were speechless, saying only that they had nothing to judge. It was that beautiful. However, they should have commented on her effort to hit higher notes. Which she totally pulled off. (Good job, Lauren!)

Scotty McCreery began the night with Gone by Montgomery Gentry. The judges loved his energetic and crowd pleasing performance. Later, he showed his tender side with Always on My Mind by Elvis Presley. J-Lo loved how comfortable he is on stage and they agreed that he’s a well-rounded performer.

Haley Reinhart took a risk with her first performance by choosing an unreleased Lady Gaga song. The judges thought she should have picked something that people know and can connect with. But she more than made up for it with her final performance of House of the Rising Sun by The Animals, which the judges said was the best performance of the night.
