michael lynche eleanor rigby american idol 'American Idol': 'Eleanor Rigby' gets R&B twist from Michael LyncheDid you miss Michael Lynche‘s smooth spin on “Eleanor Rigby” during the “American Idol” Top 9?

We’ve got you covered. The judges were split — Simon Cowell compared it to something you’d see in a musical, which is pretty confounding to us.

It sounded like an R&B song, not like something out of “Oklahoma.” Randy then got off on a weird “Glee” tangent and Kara and Ellen could only sit there and shake their heads.

For our part, we liked it. It wasn’t Big Mike’s best performance to date but it was solid. And it was the most interesting take we’ve heard on that song, to be sure. What do you guys think? Was it good enough to keep Mike in the competition?

Also, the mentor next week is Adam Lambert. Could the theme be something more rock-y and if so, will Mike rock the house or will he again bring everything to his world, as he told us at the Top 12 party? Guess we’ll have to wait and see! Check out our full recap of the “American Idol” Top 9 here. How do you think they fared on the Beatles week?
