While Adam Lambert was definitely the hyped-up performance on Wednesday’s “American Idol” elimination show, we also got treated to a song from Season 7’s Brooke White and “If I Can Dream’s” Justin Gaston (more widely known as Miley Cyrus‘ ex-boyfriend).
White and Gaston sang a duet to Elvis Presley‘s “If I Can Dream” (clever, “Idol”). Gaston is one of the featured aspiring talents on the web show “If I Can Dream” — so getting a spot on “American Idol” must have been quite a dream come true for the 21-year-old model.
As for the song they sang, “If I Can Dream” was a highlight from Presley’s 1968 Christmas special for NBC — often referred to as his “Comeback Special.”
White started at the piano and then moved over to sing side-by-side with Gaston on his
guitar. Overall it was a pretty solid performance, with
White getting slightly higher marks over Gaston for vocals and performance.
What did YOU think of their performance? Do you plan to download it on iTunes?
