This week on American Idol (Season 12, Week 10), the Top 9 performed songs by the Beatles. Read Kidzworld’s recap of the “Top 9 Performances,” which aired on March 20th, 2013 to discover what you missed.

This week, the season 12 top 9 honored the legendary Beatles by performing famous songs from the band's musical history. Nearly everyone did the Beatles proud, so much so that no singular person stood out. But before the performances began, Ryan Seacrest announced which eliminated contestant will be joining the top 10 on the American Idol tour. And the winner is...Aubrey Cleland!

The Great

Kree opened the show with a knock out performance that set the bar high for the contestants to come. The judges loved her distinct sound, and Nicki called her the whole package. Next up, Burnell sang "Let It Be" with such tenderness and perfection, he couldn't have chose a better song for him. Ironically, however, he'd never heard the song before this week! You'd never know it. Candice sang "Come Together," and didn't fail to impress. The judges loved seeing her rocker side. Angie stepped away form the piano to perform "Yesterday," showing off the range and Evanescence quality to her voice.

The Good

This was probably the least outstanding performance we've seen from Amber, though it was still good. She sang the lesser known song "She's Leaving Home." Devin was almost worthy of being in the great category this week. He adapted "The Long and Winding Road" to fit the pure sound he's becoming known for. Keith's only complaint was that Devin needs to find an emotional connection with the audience. It's not enough just to sing. Janelle had her best performance of the season when she sang "I Will," though it still wasn't as outstanding as some of the other girls' performances this week.

The Not So Good

Again, for the second straight week, Lazaro falls into this category. He's a good singer, and the fact that music helps him overcome a troublesome stutter makes him all the more loveable. But the truth is, his talent is not on par with the rest of the contestants. It will be sad to see him leave, but it will be even more heartbreaking to see him take the spot of someone more talented, like last week with Curtis. Lazaro sang "In My Life" and it was rough. All the judges agreed that he chose the wrong key to fit his voice. Paul Jolley also had a rough night singing "All The Lonely People." Nicki did not hold back in her criticism. She called his performance very safe and bland and forgettable.

Elimination

 Well, the results are in and once again Lazaro has been rescued from the bottom three...somehow. Clearly he has some die-hard fans. This week's bottom three was Amber Holcomb, Devin Velez and Paul Jolley. Of the three, the right contestant was sent home - Paul Jolley.
