American Idol--Elton John Week

Posted on the 31 March 2011 by Thefriskyvirgin
Overall, I'd say the contestants had another strong night. There were some disappointments (Rocket Man, anyone? One of my absolute favorite Elton John songs, and poor Paul just didn't do it justice--I think he has a very unique voice/vibe, but...not for Rocket Man).
Highlights, in no particular order:
Pia: Once again, she nailed it with Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me.  She showed so much emotion this week--it was really powerful. Although, I bet Benny and The Jets would have been a great fit for her, and it would have broken the ballad trend.
Scotty: With Country Comfort, he brought that country swagger yet again, and reaffirmed that he will be a future country artist.
Casey: Goosebumps. Welcome back, Casey. He made Your Song, his song. (He made me cry last week--so glad they saved him). 
Jacob: Singing Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word, Jacob held back a bit, but I really thought it worked for this song.
Lauren: She did a beautiful job with Candle In The Wind. One of her strongest weeks.
Who did you like? Who do you think might be in trouble this week? Remember, TWO contestants will go home tomorrow night.
