Lil Rounds Makes Big Impression on American Idol

at . Comments

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:

  • Jorge Nunez, who broke down in tears and could only think/speak in Spanish after receiving universal praise from the judges for “Don’t Let the Sun go Down on Me” by Elton John;
  • 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:
