American Idol paid tribute to Hollywood last night on movie night.
Top contenders included Lauren Alaina, Scotty McCreery, and James Durbin.
My favorite was Scotty. He sang “I Cross My Heart” by George Strait and it was the perfect song choice for him. Scotty claimed that he was going back to his roots with the choice, but we all know he never left. The country crooner took a few more risks vocally, including holding the last note, and the judges loved it. Randy said that we have seen a star born on the stage.
James also took a risk with a heavy metal pick. He ignored Jimmy and will.i.am’s advice and did the metal song that he wanted. At the end of the night, it turned out to be a-ok! The judges loved that he stuck to his guns and performed what he felt.
Who were your favorites last night?
