Janelle Arthur – I Will – American Idol 12 (Top 9) by IdolxMuzic

Janelle Arthur has been a bit hit and miss on “American Idol” this season. She really has had some weird song choices at times. Luckily on Beatles night, she nailed her song choice and gave what is probably her best performance so far on the show with “I Will.”

It was a beautiful vocal, so restrained. It actually sounded like a current country hit, which is no easy feat with Beatles music. The judges loved it too.

“You know who you are, you’re pure, you’re true and I thought that was really, really beautiful,” says Keith Urban. Nicki Minaj adds, “Can we renew our vows tonight? … You look like a beautiful swan goddess. That performance just made me fall so much more deeply obsessed with you.”

Randy says, “You know what? I think Janelle’s back … I think that’s one of the best performances of the night” and Mariah calls it “a beautiful, elegant performance.”

What did you think, “Idol” fans?
