A "21-century music" American Idol theme given first seven lucky to get contemporary Wednesday: While Haley Reinhart covered Adele, Stefano Langone has Ne-Yo sang Alain and Lauren Sara Evans. Jacob Lusk paid tribute to the anniversary of the late Luther Vandross. James Durbin had the most spectacular performance of the night, with a drum lifting body Muse. But not everyone was covered 80 new Scotty McCreery, John Anderson hit Swingin '. The highlight of the night? Casey Abrams Jennifer Lopez with a final kiss amazing performance. Is this the kiss of death? To find out Thursday night (8 pm ET / PT, Fox).
Classification is difficult for me tonight. I am able to argue for more singers in some places more or less. I also like shows with the most points also had some problems and the worst of them had a good time.
James Durbin, Uprising
Lauren Alaina, Born to Fly
Jacob Lusk, Dance With My Father
Casey Abrams, Harder to Breathe
