Just in case you missed tonight’s show we have you covered and you can read our full and detailed recap here!
On last week’s episode Malaya sang “Ain’t No Way” by Aretha Franklin and Harry loved her rendition saying, “You are doing everything right, you’re entertaining, you’re performing, you’re doing all of those things right. I’m going to give you the same advice I gave you last week, you have access to so many music coaches, this incredible band, and Ricky. Get them to teach you notes, there’s 12 notes, learn them all. You can get there, you can do it. I wouldn’t waste my time telling you if I didn’t think you could do it. And keep doing what you have been doing, that was great.”
Season 7 winner of American Idol, David Cook mentored the hopeful Idols tonight to help them bring their best performances so they make it through another week. On the next live results show airing Thursday, one contestant will be sent home.
