Amber Holcomb – What About Love – American Idol… by IdolxMuzic

“American Idol” took on rock ‘n roll for the Top 7 theme and Amber Holcomb decided to try on some Heart for size — and she absolutely nailed “What About Love?” It was a superb vocal, our favorite of the night.

The judges agreed.

“Wow. Great, great song choice … key change was killer. I thought that was really great, baby,” says Keith. Nicki adds, “I just really don’t even know where to begin … the first line of the song just completely melted me. You believed what you were singing.”

And Randy echoes our thoughts exactly with, “What I love is you didn’t lose Amber in there … you really found yourself in there. I can still hear the little Houston-isms in there, the Whitney-isms.”

So good. Will you be voting for Amber, “Idol” fans?
