Here are the Top 9 Performances of American Idol Season 11. The number before each performer's name is the order of my ranking them based on their total performance. My personal rating you can find below each video.
Jessica Sanchez singing "Sweet Dreams" is undeniably the best performance in this lot! She made the song into a ballad which is deliciously good! I love DeAndre Brackensick's style with his powerful falceto singing "Sometimes I Cry" making it in my Top 2. On my 3rd spot is Colton Dixon's rendition of a worship song entitled "Everything." I felt his love and passion for God. It's deep within him. I was moved by his performance. Joshua Ledet's "Without You," is my 4th favorite. He gave the song a different approach - with a little of his "screaming" technique.
1. Jessica Sanchez - Sweet Dreams (Top 9)
3. Colton Dixon - Everything (Top 9)
Comment from YouTube: I completely disagree with what Jimmy said on the show Thursday. When Colton got emotional it did not ruin his performance. It enhanced it. That's what you want to_ see from a performer. You want to see them be passionate about what they're doing and you want to feel it. When Colton said it was his favorite worship song that made him my favorite because he isn't afraid to stand up for God on national television and the world needs someone like him right now. (by )
