Fil-am Thia Megia sings “(Love Is Like a) Heat Wave” by Martha and the Vandellas on the American Idol Top 11 performance night. The theme for this week is Motown.
This is the first time that Thia performed an up-tempo song and the judges liked it.
Here’s what the judges said about her performance:
Steven Tyler: “You’ve taken a step out, I love it.”
Jennifer Lopez: “I need you to dig even deeper each week. Part of performing is acting and you have to bring that every time. Now I know you got it in you.”
Randy Jackson: “This new thing is a good thing. You can really sing. Happy to see you take a step up this week. You took a chance tonight. You can really sing. You moved up a notch tonight. Push!”
