What a terrific show last evening! It always seems to me that the music of Lennon and McCartney brings out the very best in all the singers. Many of these singers have worked extremely hard to prepare for this show and their hard work paid off.
There were so many wonderful performances but I thought two or three were stand-outs. Alas, you will have to wait for my Top 9 Vocal Masterclass article to view my personal preferences, but, for now, I congratulate all the singers for pulling together to produce a showstopper of an evening. The best yet!
And can I tell you how excited I am to see and hear the extremely talented David Archuleta perform his extraordinary version of John Lennon’s “Imagine” during this evening’s Results Show telecast?
Seems to me that he and/or David Cook would be ideal mentors for this show. During Season 7, these guys knew how to select songs and, more important, how to deliver the goods with sincere passion and artistry.
Hope to comment further this evening as the show unfolds and don’t forget to add your opinions as well. You can start now or come back later!

UPDATE #2: David Archuleta just sang the heart and soul out of “Imagine”. Gorgeous. He showed everyone how it’s really done. What a prodigy! And what a gift!
