‘American Idol’ Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll Week: Top Nine Songs
“American Idol” was a great show last night with the Top 9 Contestants performing songs that shaped Rock and Roll. I have to admit they all did an awesome job. I know that each year it is said that this is the best crop of talent in American Idol yet. I have watched “American Idol” since the beginning, and I have to admit this is one of the better groups of talent on “American Idol.” So what did the contestants sing last night? Read on to find out.
Scotty McCreery: The country boy showed off a bit of rockabilly flavor with Elvis Presley‘s ‘That’s All Right,’ which was certainly one of the night’s most entertaining and energetic performances. We still can’t believe that Scotty is a teen. He’s such an old soul.
Paul McDonald: It’s a bold move to play with Johnny Cash‘s iconic, uber-cool ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ but McDonald embraced the song, injecting it with energy we’ve yet to see from him. Hands down, this high octane was his best performance overall and one of the best of the evening.
