Ladies and gentlemen, presenting your season eight winner on American Idol: Lil Rounds!
Okay, that might be a bit premature. But just a bit.
The 23-year old mother of three blew viewers away last night with her rendition of Mary J. Blige's “Be Without You." Watch it for yourself:

It's safe to assume that Lil Rounds will have her ticket punched for the finals when results are announced tonight.
Who will join her there? Our best guesss are:

- And Scott MacIntyre. Dude is legally blind! He oozed with emotion and talent during performance of “Mandolin Rain” by Bruce Hornsby.
Still, Lil Rounds stole the show. Here's a photo of her during last night's performance:
