This day I saw him as an Idol. Best ever. Love you.
This should be in the top ten.
Next to Fantasia's Summertime, it ws probbly the most emotionl performance ever, and next to Kelly's Natural Woman, it probably was the most powerful vocal ever. If anybody underestimated the young contestants on the show, they didn't anymore. - ilovekelly75V1 Comment
The song has been remade many times by many different highly accomplished artists, and Elliott knew what he would be compared to, and he stepped up to the plate, and delivered the performance of a lifetime. - ilovekelly75
To hard to pick just one. He was great every single time.
Will always love James
He was awesome in every performance
Love to hear him sing and I am 64
Added to the fact that singing a song with no background music in front of 35 million people isn't exactly the easiest thing in the world to do, it was also sung technically perfect, with great vocals, and an unbelieveable amount of emotion behind it. America had no choice but to send him to the final two after this. - ilovekelly75
Melinda chose a simple ballad, and her pure voice shone through. She became the top contender after that performance. - ilovekelly75
I love the fact that she wrote her own song and she had the guts to perform it in front of everyone. We know Angie, we know her voice is phenomenon but just seeing her songwriting talent was heartwarming because I just love it when singers write their own songs.
What separates her from the rest of the American Idol Contenders is that she has the ability to write great songs. This one caught everyone by surprise! - drummer
BEST SONG OF THE SEASON... HELL, BEST SONG OF THE ENTIRE SHOW!
The way she sings it with so much meaning and with that epic voice of hers :') PROUD to call myself a Jena fan, I don't care if she didn't win (SHE SHOULD HAVE), I'll always listen to her music, she inspires me, THANK YOU JENA, I LOVE YOU
This is the performance, by far, of season 13. It is just so beautiful and Jena's voice just complements to the meaning of the song
I am in SHOCK. I just can't believe this. This is the best performance idol has seen in that season. Her range. I can't even...
The best performance everV1 Comment
From the start, I was amazed. Every run, heck, every note was amazing! Especially at the end, when she sang that last 'me' it blew me away, to the other side of the room. - boeingrules
