Nick Boddington – Top 10 Boys – American Idol 12 by IdolxMuzic

For his “American Idol” Top 10 men performance, Nick Boddington got back behind the piano for “Iris” by the Goo Goo Dolls — and it totally worked for him. We loved the small changes he made to the melody line and his tone and tenderness.

“Perfect. What a perfect song for you. I love you playing the piano and singing … there’s a vulnerability about your tone. I feel it every time you sing,” says Keith Urban. Mariah Carey adds, “I was happy to see you at the piano … you really kicked in at the end. You really got to that place where you were strong, you were confident.”

What do you think, “Idol” fans? Is it enough to make Nick one of the Top 10 finalists?
