WKEF-TV ABC 22 News :: News - Good Morning - Idol Chatter: Final 4 Perform

Idol Chatter: Final 4 Perform

The Top 4 contestants all had to sing 3 songs last night.  But it was the final category of the night (Make-Up Songs) where they all really got it right.
And one contestant gave us the wow moment that we have been waiting for all season.

Jena definitely had the top song of the night (and one that ranks at the top of all American Idol performances throughout the 13 seasons).  She sang Elvis'  "Can't Help Falling In Love".  She recreated it, and the vocals were absolutely amazing!  So beautiful and so heartfelt--hard to believe she's only 17.

Caleb had two great rock songs early on, but it was his final song- Paul McCartney's "Maybe I'm Amazed" that really put his great night over the top.  We always hear him belting out big loud rock songs (and we love that about him)....but this soft ballad let us see a totally different side.  It took him to a whole new level.

Jessica struggled her first two songs- as she has for weeks.  But we have been waiting all season for her to pick the perfect song, and at the end of the night- she did!   She sang Lady GaGa's "You and I" and had the moment that she needed if she has any chance of staying in this competition.  Strong vocals, perfect arrangement and finally looked natural as she moved on the stage.  Instead of going after a rock vibe, she seemed totally at home with a more country feel.  And whether she planned it or it just came out that way--the country fans don't have a contestant in this for the first time...and she might just appeal to that huge group.  

Alex continued to do the same exact thing he's done the entire season.  He stuck with his more subtle, heartfelt performances- but it's really hard for him to really stand out when there were such dynamic performances from the three other competitors.  His best of the night was "Yellow" by Coldplay. 

Someone will be eliminated one week shy of the hometown visits- Who will it be? 
Tune in tonight to see who's headed home!
