'American Idol's Top 9 eleventh-season finalists take the stage, sing


By Reality TV World staff, 03/29/2012 

American Idol became American Ovation during Wednesday night's live performance show, which featured the competition's Top 9 eleventh-season finalists taking the stage and singing songs previously performed by their personal musical idols.

Five of the competition's nine remaining finalists received standing ovations from American Idol judges Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson following their solo performances.

"What a night, I think we had a record five standing ovations from our judges tonight!" American Idol host Ryan Seacrest noted as he wrapped up the performance show, which also included three trio performances by the finalists.

Seacrest then asked Tyler, Lopez and Jackson to reveal who the night's strongest and weakest performers had been, however the Idol judges refused to play along.

"Man, I don't know, they were all so good tonight Ryan.  You just said it, we stood up five times," Jackson replied.  "I mean there were some performances that weren't quite on par, but it's hard to say -- America's got its work cut out for it."

"I think tonight was like a magical mystery tour of over-the-top talent and emotion.  It's so hard," Tyler said.  "Again, some of you it wasn't your best, but you know, you're all so good.  Just keep this up, please."

"Like I said, there were so many standout moments for me, I just couldn't sit in my chair.  It's was crazy!" added Lopez.

Deandre Brackensick  Heejun Han, Joshua Ledet, Phillip Phillips, and Elise Testone were the five finalists who received standing ovations from the judges.

While they didn't earn standing o's, the four other Top 9 finalists -- Hollie Cavanagh, Colton Dixon, Skylar Laine, and Jessica Sanchez -- also received positive comments from Tyler, Lopez and Jackson for their performances.

Assuming the judges do not opt to use "The Judges' Save," the Idol finalist who received the fewest home-viewer votes following last night's broadcast will be eliminated from the competition during Thursday night's live results show.
