VIDEO: AMERICAN IDOL Takes on Show Tunes - Watch Performances from DREAMGIRLS, LION KING & More
It was a dramatic night on last night's AMERICAN IDOL as finalist Qaasim Middleton was saved from elimination after the judges - Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. - unanimously agreed to use the save when it was revealed that he received the lowest number of votes. Middleton will continue in the competition as he takes the stage with the remaining finalists next week.
The theme of last night's show was music from the movies, and several of the contestants chose to take on tunes from films which went on to be adapted to the Broadway stage (or vice versa!). Below, check out the performances including:
Tyanna Jones performs "Circle of Life" from THE LION KING
Adanna Duru takes on "Love You I Do" from DREAMGIRLS
Quentin Alexander brings a different take on "You're the One That I Want" from GREASE
Maddie Walker gives her take on "Let's Hear It for the Boy" from FOOTLOOSE
Jax shares her sweet performance of "Grow Old With You" from THE WEDDING SINGER
During the show, legendary musician, producer and this week's mentor, Nile Rodgers, premiered a sneak peak of his new single "I'll Be There." The full-length music video will be available tomorrow, Friday, March 20, at 10:00 AM ET, exclusively on Facebook. The video stars Karlie Kloss, and will be available on Rodgers' Official Facebook page.
