hollie jesus idol 'American Idol': Carrie Underwood 'honored' Hollie Cavanagh chose 'Jesus Take the Wheel'For songs by their personal idols week on “American Idol,” Hollie Cavanaugh chose “Idol” winner Carrie Underwood‘s hit “Jesus Take the Wheel.” While we didn’t think it was Hollie’s strongest effort, it still was pretty solid. And guess who else liked it? Carrie herself.

Carrie tweets, “You were amazing tonight! You meant every word…made me teary-eyed. I’m honored you picked my song to sing!”

Aww, isn’t that nice of her? We heart Carrie. The judges were not as complimentary. Jennifer praised Hollie’s emotions, but neither Steven nor Randy were super-excited about the song choice. What did you you think, “Idol” fans? Will Hollie get your vote this week?

In case you missed it, listen below.
