This is one of the most popular singing contests in U.S.A.

A “music from the 21st century” theme gave American Idol’s top seven the chance to get contemporary Wednesday: So Haley Reinhart covered Adele, Stefano Langone did Ne-Yo and Lauren Alaina sang Sara Evans. Jacob Lusk paid birthday tribute to the late Luther Vandross. James Durbin had the night’s most theatrical performance, bringing a drum corps to Muse’s Uprising. But not everybody stayed new: Scotty McCreery covered John Anderson’s ’80s hit Swingin’. Highlight of the night? Casey Abrams surprising Jennifer Lopez with a performance-ending kiss. Is it the kiss of death? Find out Thursday night (8 ET/PT, Fox).
American Idol April 20, 2011 – Rankings are tough for me tonight. I could make arguments for several singers to be a couple of places higher or lower. I also think the performances with the highest points also had some problems, and the worst ones had some good moments.

- Lauren Alaina, Born to Fly
- Jacob Lusk, Dance With My Father
- Casey Abrams, Harder to Breathe
- Scotty McCreery, Swingin’
