Katie Stevens of 'American Idol' performs on Lennon & McCartney Night
Singer: Katie Stevens
Song: "Let It Be"
Monkeys As Critics' Take: Katie Stevens has been invited to prom five times. She says she'll make her decision based on who has voted for her the most. Katie's a hoot. I like her more than many previous "Idol" Robo-Teens. And she's now found her way into a string of serviceable middle-of-the-pack performances. Then again, she's also been in the Bottom Three in consecutive weeks, so maybe she needs to step it up a tiny bit? There are a few bigger notes in this one and she pulls them off. This performance also is low-energy, but it's many times better than what Aaron did as a vocal.
Randy, Ellen, Kara and Simon Say: Randy calls it Katie's best performance ever. Ellen says there's no way Katie will be in the Bottom Three again and calls it "amazing." Kara is proud of Katie tonight. Simon tells Katie that she got it right and he claims that what Katie did was a country version. The other judges are confused by Simon's claim, especially Kara, who bellows "Let it Be" tunelessly in Simon's ear. Somebody's been drinking from Paula's cup. I'm guessing we're gonna see extravagant praise for all three women this week and probably over-the-top insulting of the six men, because the "Idol" producers really can't afford for a fourth consecutive female to go home.
