American Idol Recap

Stevie Nicks was the "American Idol" guest mentor for the Top 9.

20-year-old rocker Colton Dixon, of Murfreesboro, Tenn., sang an emotional version of Lifehouse's "Everything," which he called his favorite worship song, and spunky 18-year-old country rocker Skylar Laine of Brandon, Miss., performed Miranda Lambert's "Gunpowder and Lead."

Randy Jackson told Skyler, "You are a powerhouse singer."

Randy and Steven Tyler weren't impressed by the song choice from 18-year-old singer Hollie Cavanaugh of McKinney, Texas. Hollie sang "Idol" champion Carrie Underwood's "Jesus, Take the Wheel" to mixed results. Jackson noted her pitch problems, and Tyler claimed that it didn't show off her vocal range.

Elise Testone, the 28-year-old teacher from Charleston, S.C., performed Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love," while Joshua Ledet, the 19-year-old student from Westlake, La., delivered Badfinger's "Without You".

Jennifer Lopez told Elise, "You made everybody get up. It was crazy."

16-year-old student Jessica Sanchez of San Diego impressed the judges with Beyonce's "Sweet Dreams"; 21-year-old pawn shop worker Phillip Phillips of Leesburg, Ga., sang Jonny Lang's "Still Rainin'''; and 17-year-old student Deandre Brackensick of San Jose, Calif., performed Eric Benet's "Sometimes I Cry."

Heejun Han, the goofy 22-year-old nonprofit organizer from New York, delivered a serious take on Leon Russell's "A Song for You."

Phil Phillips
Janet, Randy Jackson has mentioned a few times that Philip Philips reminds him of Dave Matthews. Don't make such dumb comments like he won't be a fave unless someone says he is like Dave Matthews. He is great regardless.
