Hollie Cavanagh gave arguably the best performance during Whitney Houston week on “American Idol.” She chose “All the Man that I Need,” which is no easy feat (not that there are easy Whitney songs, but some are harder than others).

We had goosebumps from almost the first note. Her quiet verse, the big chorus, the key change and then the quiet ending – absolutely gorgeous. This little sprite of a girl has the biggest voice, it’s so surprising when it comes out at you.

The judges also loved it, Jimmy Iovine and Mary J. Blige loved it. Did you love it? Will Hollie be getting your votes Wednesday night?
