"American Idol" - Top 8 Performance Show - April 13, 2011
Ryan notes that JLo has been named the "World's Most Beautiful Woman" by People magazine.
In the audience: Hank Azaria, Rob Reiner, Elvira
Theme: Songs from the movies
Contestant: Paul McDonald. Will.i.am thinks he should slide in like Tom Cruise. Jimmy thinks there should be beatboxing in the middle. Will thinks this is wrong, the opposite of what the song is about. They had a great time rehearsing so Jimmy hopes Paul brings that.
Song: "Old Time Rock 'n Roll," Bob Seger
Performance: Paul skips down the stairs in his fancy suit and then shimmies around the judges' table. It's a very energetic performance. He rocks a tambourine during the sax solo. Paul's voice just seem suited to the song, not big enough in some way. But, he had fun as did the audience.
Steven: Steven wants to borrow his suit and he loves his crazy, wild abandon.
JLo: Thinks he's going a little further each time and getting more polished. She thinks he killed it.
