You gonna let it all hang out, flat-bottomed Ryan? Tonight the Top 6 American Idol finalists sang a Queen song and then a song of their choice. I’m working on my full recap now, but my first impressions are….coming up, after the break!

I LOVED:

Hollie Cavanagh, “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus

Joshua Ledet, “Ready For Love” by India.Arie

Skylar Laine, “The Show Must Go On” by Queen

Elise Testone, “Bold As Love” by Jimi Hendrix

THESE WERE GOOD:

Jessica Sanchez, “Dance With My Father” by Luther Vandross

Phillip Phillips, “The Stone” by Dave Matthews Band

Elise Testone, “I Want It All” by Queen

Hollie Cavanagh, “Save Me” by Queen

THESE WERE JUST OKAY FOR ME. FOR YOU?

Joshua Ledet, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” by Queen

Skylar Laine, “Tattoos On This Town” by Jason Aldean

Jessica Sanchez, “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen
