katie stevens let it be 'American Idol': 'Let It Be' lets Katie Stevens shineKatie Stevens gave her best performance to date on “Let It Be” during Beatles week on “American Idol.”

The judges keep trying to stuff her into the “young” box. Young and current are not synonymous. Katie’s “Let It Be” sounded like it came from a seasoned performer and we mean that in a good way. It was emotional, with lilting higher notes that were gorgeous and pure. It was her best performance yet on the show and while it sounded current, it certainly didn’t sound young.

The way she changed the melody was a masterclass in how to take a classic song and make it your own without completely destroying what people liked about it in the first place. Also, she wasn’t “country” at all, as Simon Cowell tried to say. Was that his giant ego just trying to take credit for her success? Because that was Kara’s pop-R&B all the way.

How do you think Katie did? And how do you think she’ll fare next week with Adam Lambert as the guest mentor? Something tells us she’s a Glambert fan!
