Amber Holcomb – Shes Leaving Home – American… by IdolxMuzic

For Beatles night on “American Idol,” Amber Holcomb made a bold choice by picking a fairly obscure number by the legendary group — “She’s Leaving Home,” from “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”

But Amber absolutely slayed it. We thought it was one of the strongest vocals of the night. The judges weren’t as gushing as we thought they would be, though.

Randy says, “It started a little slow and unsure for me, but by the time you hit the second chorus and got into those power notes, there’s my Amber.” And Mariah adds, “For someone to perform it in such a fearless way, I just thought that was really fantastic … you got there. I was really with you.”

Keith says, “You came out and made it sound as fresh as if it was just written this week, so I thought that was beautiful,” which we definitely agree with.

What did you think, “Idol” fans?
