Carrie Underwood and Coldplay made appearances on "American Idol" elimination night in a week that's dedicated to British music. This marked for the umpteenth time the 2005 "Idol" winner performed on the singing competition, but it became the first time ever the Chris Martin-fronted band sang on the show.
Wearing a white one-shoulder long dress, Underwood catered audience on the Thursday night, May 3 episode with the title track of her new album "Blown Away". Coldplay, meanwhile, rocked the stage with their two singles "Paradise" and "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall", which are taken from their latest CD "Mylo Xyloto".
Next week, the four remaining contestants Hollie Cavanagh, Jessica Sanchez, Joshua Ledet and Phillip Phillips will be back for a California Dreamin'-themed performance show. Judge Jennifer Lopez will perform her new single "Dance Again" on the result night, and 2008 "Idol" winner David Cook will return to the show to debut his fresh track "The Last Song I'll Write for You".
