Hollie Cavanagh has desperately needed a big week on “American Idol” and she finally got one with Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.” It seemed like a risky choice, but then Hollie busted out her huge pipes, she was on pitch and she displayed an emotion that she hasn’t yet shown on the show.
The judges were over the moon. “I am so happy right now! You did it,” says J.Lo. Steven Tyler sums it up perfectly with, “You finally did what all America was waiting for you to do … I can’t judge it, it was perfect. It was beautiful.” And Randy Jackson adds, “You’ve arrived, Hollie. Very well done.”
What did you think, “Idol” fans? Did Hollie do Adele justice? Will she be getting your votes tonight? We’ll post video as soon as we have it, for now audio is below in case you missed it.
