American Idol Episode Recap: The Top 9 Perform Season 9

American Idol's top 9 take on Lennon-McCartney songbook, and despite the use of some odd backing instruments (a didgeridoo and bagpipes for The Beatles?), the performances were mostly solid. Thanks to the show's two-hour running time, there was plenty of filler and lots of unnecessary bickering from the judges' table. But even so, there were some standout performances. So, who hit the right notes and who fell flat? Let's find out.

Aaron Kelly, "The Long and Winding Road"

Yoda, as his fellow singers like to call him, again invited the David Archuleta comparison by singing a song Archie covered back in Season 7. As usual, Aaron sang it well, but he was slightly boring. And Kara was right: This performance felt just like every other performance he's done this season. He promises to bring the tempo next week, but I am not sure he will still be around.

Judging the Judges: B+ Randy didn't like the sleepy arrangement, which Ellen called "the long and winding song." Kara said Aaron's yet to be great.
