Our Favorite American Idol Performances from Disney Night [WATCH]
We have our top 8!
It was my favorite theme night on 'American Idol' this week! The remaining 10 contestants all sang Disney songs, and there were some fantastic performances. Unfortunately, two people did go home last night, with the judges choosing not to use their one save of the season. Both Uché and Dimitrius were cut, which wasn't too surprising considering they were both saved by judges last week. Uché has consistently been one of my favorites this season, so I was sad to see him go, even though I wasn't a huge fan of his performance this week. On the other hand, I thought Dimitirus did really well with his cover of "You'll Be in My Heart," one of my favorite Disney songs EVER.
My favorite singer this week was actually a surprise to me! Wade Cota did "You've Got a Friend in Me" from Toy Story and his voice was absolutely PERFECT for the song:
And, per usual, Madison VanDenburg KILLED IT. Her rendition of "How Far I'll Go" from Moana was flawless. She is one of the most consistent singers in the competition right now, in my opinion.
You know who else shocked me this week, aside from Wade? Walker Burroughs! He did (arguably) one of the saddest Disney songs ever, "When She Loved Me" from Toy Story 2, and it had me so emotional!
And finally, I thought Alyssa Raghu really brought her A-game this week with "Colors of the Wind" from Pocahontas. She hit some pretty impressive notes that we haven't heard her try before:
Oh! And how could we forget about our own Maddie Poppe?! She returned with her boyfriend Caleb Hutchinson for "A Whole New World" and it was pretty adorable:
Since the results were revealed during last night's episode, tonight ABC will air a two-hour special called American Idol: Meet Your Finalists. According to ABC, it will include "new, never-before-seen songs, stories, performances and footage from the show, as well as a look back at this season's favorite moments so far."
