Scotty McCreery Countrified Stevie Wonder on Idol [Video]
American Idol travelled back to Motown. The era that broke racial barriers and influenced all types of music. From Rock & Pop to Rhythm & Blues. But Motown and Country? Scotty McCreery took on Stevie Wonder’s “From Once In My Life,” proving Motown and Country do mix.
Casey Abrams opened the show with unique spin on Marvin Gaye’s “Heard It Through the Grapevine.” Soulful Jacob Lusk got the judges on their feet and Steven Tyler to come up on stage after his version of Marvin Gaye’s “You’re All I Need To Get By.” Naima Adedapo, who has been in the bottom 3 the last few weeks threw some crazy dance moves into Martha and the Vandellas’ “Dancing in the Streets.” And rocker James Durbin brought his falsetto to Stevie Wonder’s “Living for the City.”
So who will go home tonight? If it was based on last night’s performances alone, I’d have to say Stefano Langone who failed to connect with Lionel Richie’s “Hello.” But he’s cute and the ladies love him. 16 year old Thia Megia could be in danger too. She finally sang an upbeat song with “Heat Wave,” but was it good enough?
Sugarland will perform on tonight’s show before one more goes home. Tune into FOX at 8 to see who gets the boot
