For Round 2 Phillip Phillips performed ‘In The Midnight Hour’ by Wilson Picket’ tonight on American Idol the Top 7. It is the same group as last week after the judges saved Jessica Sanchez with their only save last week. This week each contestant will be on the American Idol stage twice, the theme for this week is Now and Then. We are getting awfully close, can you imagine how much stress the contestants are feeling?
The “singers” had to pick a #1 hit song from 2000-2012 and then sing an older soul song. The mentor for tonight’s show is Jimmy Levine.

Judges Comments: Jennifer said, “You make me want to get up there and do that little step with you, it’s a feeling and it’s the soul, it’s great.” Steven said, “Everybody loves you because of who you are, brilliantly awkward.” Randy said, “Exactly what you need is exactly what you have, you let the song breath, you show emotion every time, I love it.”
