Something took hold of the American Idol stage last night. It seemed that all the American Idol contestants brought on their top game last night. I mean I was genuinely moved by the performances. I still love my favorites Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips. However, I am also a growing fan of Colton Dixon , Elise Testone and Deandre Brackensick.
It was amazing night that for me turned Season 11 around and now has fully brought the Idol magic back. It must be because of the influence of guest music artist coach, Stevie Nicks. This competition is tight in many ways with the talent now showing up strongly. Now it is going to require every nuance coupled with a strong and memorable performance , for contestants to stand out above the pack.
If this momentum keeps up it will be one of the most exciting and strong Idol seasons ever.
“Sanchez gave yet another perfectly calibrated performance with Beyonce‘s “Sweet Dreams,” balancing restraint and power. Everything from her voice to her dress to the red door she walked through seemed polished and tour-ready.” LA TIMES
