Episode Recap

First up is Taylor Hicks. He'll start with "Jail House Rock" and here he comes to boogie on down the stage!! Randy begins by saying he is in his element. Great way to start off the show. Paula says he looks fantastic, is original and was phenomenal. Simon reminds us there are 4 people left. In the real world, it was a terrible impersonation of Elvis. The dancing was hideous, it was karaoke with a capital K.

Up next is Chris Daughtry. He'll be singing "Suspicious Minds." He makes his way on stage to do his Elvis!! Randy says it was a tender moment for Chris. Wasn't best vocal, but kind of nice. Paula says you forget how great that song is and then you hear Chris sing it. See you in the finals, she says. Simon said that worked, it was very well.

Now it's time for Elliott Yamin. He'll be singing "If I Can Dream" and here he comes to show is softer side!! Randy says he was worried when he heard Elliott was going to do that, but it was hot, he made it his own. Paula says it was his best vocal performance the entire season. Simon says he came into the show tonight as an under dog, he chose a song not many people know, but so far, it was the best.

Up now is Katharine McPhee! She'll start tonight by singing "Hound Dog" with a little mix of "I'm All Shook Up" in there. And here she comes on stage now!!! The McFever!! Randy says she had a good time with it, she did her thing, but something happened in the middle. She missed a part of the song, but covered it up. Paula said it was really fun. Simon says it reminded him of a desperate manic audition. Wasn't a great performance overall.

Time for another go around with 1 more performance from each of the top 4!



Taylor is up again for his second time tonight. This time he'll be doing "In The Ghetto" and he makes his way on stage to do his crazy little thing. Randy says it was the right key, the right song, this is the kind of record he should make, it was hot. Paula gushes over him and Simon says the first performance was silly, and this was the perfect song for him. He sung his way into the semi finals.

Chris is up again and he's doing "A Little Less Conversation" and here he is to do his thing! Randy says once again something good happened. It was the right key, it was hot! Paula gushes and Simon says the first song was stronger. Up until the end it was a flat performance, wasn't like him. Just ok.

Finally, it's time for Katharine's final performance of the night. This time she's doing "Can't Help Falling In Love" and she hit's the stage to take me away! Randy says it was better than the first, she ran out of a little air, pitchy, but it was alright. Paula doesn't gush this time. Surprise, Surprise. Simon says it wasn't her best night, song started off beautifully, but it was so over the top, it was too much. She didn't choose the right song, it was too much.
