On tonight’s show Idol producer, Nigel Lithgoe announced on Twitter that the contestants first song would be from bands or singers from California and second, songs “I wish I had written” (or FREE choice).
The contestants remaining in the competition are: Phillip Phillips; Jessica Sanchez; Joshua Ledet and Hollie Cavanagh.
Hollie Cavanagh is confident and she chooses to sing one of her favorite songs, “I Can’t Make You Laugh Me” By Bonnie Raitt. Jimmy does not want Hollie to over sing this; when she is in the song, she can pull it off and she has to do magnificent tonight.
Judges Comments: Randy: “It’s a great song, but it was wrong for you, you need things that are going to give you a moment, it didn’t do it for me”. Jennifer: “It’s easier to sing this kind of song when you have had your heart broken, but you are trying to make everyone love you – there was too much shaking in your vocals. I felt it could have been your best performance, but it didn’t happen for me”. Steven: “This song is all about how you can feel the song and I found it fell short.
