Jason Castro easily put on the best performance of all finalists during inspirational song week. He chose "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."
Added:
Kristy Lee Cook - yes, Kristy Lee Cook - received props from all the judges for her rendition of Martina McBride's "Anyway." Even Simon Cowell loved it.
Added:
For her rendition of Queen's "The Show Must Go On," Carly Smithson received the worst reviews of any performer on inspirational night. The Irish singer must step up her game.
Added:
David Archuleta sang the Robbie Williams song "Angels" during inspiration week on Idol. Makes sense. Millions of girls think he's an angel himself.
Added:
After singing "You've Got a Friend," Brooke White may needs a few million of those. She could be next to get voted off the show.
Added:
David Cook has a message for fans: Give Back. It's the same message American Idol itself gives its viewers throughout the Idol Gives Back special.
Added:
David Cook and his musical instrument of choice. The man knows how to play a guitar.
Added:
The American Idol finalists gather around Ramiele Malubay as she sings her farewell song. She was voted off after Dolly Parton night.
Added:
Syesha Mercado belted out "I Will Always Love You" on Dolly Parton night. She's no Whitney Houston, but this was a solid version.
Added:
After Dolly Parton night, seen here, it might be time for Ramiele Malubay to go home. She's a great singer, don't get us wrong, but her performances don't excite us.
Added:
Michael Johns is gonna make it hard for David Cook or David Archuleta to win American Idol. He's been consistently strong throughout the series.
Added:
This is the best Kristy Lee Cook has ever looked. It's after she sung a Dolly Parton song that, sadly, once again wasn't done all that well.
