Lauren Alaina sang “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus during the American Idol Top 8 performance night.
Here are the judges’ thoughts:
Randy Jackson said “The Lauren we first saw in Nashville is roaring back. You made that sound like it was written for you. Amazing.”
Steven Tyler said “I love what you bring to a song. You move me beyond tears.”
Jennifer Lopez said “I loved hearing you sing that. I loved the tear in your voice. You sang it so beautifully. You are getting plenty of votes on your own.”
CD thought the performance could have been perfect if she doesn’t sound like she’s running out of breath on the climax of the song.
