Erika tells HollywoodLife.com she regrets never getting her ‘moment’ in the competition.
American Idol viewers were stunned March 22 when Erika Van Pelt was eliminated, despite a beautiful performance of “New York State Of Mind” the night before. And even though she tried her best to sing for her life, the judges denied her their one save. HollywoodLife.com was backstage after the show, when Erika revealed how she really felt about being voted out of the competition.
It was a mixed bag of performances March 14 on ‘American Idol’! Some contestants had their strongest night yet, while others — including favorites Heejun Han and Jessica Sanchez — failed to impress. Who do YOU think is going home?
It was “Year They Were Born” night on American Idol March 14, which meant each of the top 12 contestants had to choose a song from their birth year. For some, this was a blessing — but for others (especially those born in 1995), it was a complete and utter nightmare. However, no one had as painful of a night as Jermaine Jones, who was disqualified from the competition due to four outstanding arrests. Oh, the drama!
The top 13 contestants took on Whitney Houston and Stevie Wonder songs on ‘American Idol’ March 7 and did a surprisingly good job. Who do YOU think will get the boot?
Stevie Wonder and Whitney Houston songs are notoriously difficult for singers, so I wasn’t too optimistic heading into tonight’s American Idol. However, these top 13 singers are so talented, no one crashed and burned too badly. In fact, one incredible singer — Jessica Sanchez — even brought all three judges to their feet after her flawless rendition of “I Will Always Love You.”
