AceShowbiz - The top 10 of "American Idol" season 17 returned to stage on Sunday, April 21. The singers hit the stage on the Disney Night, giving their best in hopes of earning America's votes which would send them to the Top 8.
Kicking off the night was Uche, who looked confident while belting out "Eye to Eye" from "The Goofy Movie". He drove the crowd wild with his epic dance moves as he interacted with the audience. Judge Katy Perry, who painted her body purple as she dressed as Ursula in the episode, said that she wasn't super impressed with his vocal in the performance. Meanwhile, others noted that it might be better for him to choose a more well-known song.
Laci Kaye Booth then followed it up with a performance of "I See the Light" from "Tangled". Lionel Richie loved her song choice while Luke Bryan praised her by saying that she turned into a princess that night.
Alejandro Aranda, meanwhile, sang "Remember Me" from "Coco". He put a spin in the performance as he sang it in his own arrangement of the track and it earned him praises from the judges. Lionel was impressed by his artistry, with Katy telling him that "this is just the beginning" of his career.
Up next was Alyssa Raghu, who hit the stage to sing a rendition of "Colors of the Wind" from "Pocahontas". After nearly being eliminated last week, she successfully redeemed herself with the performance as Katy told her that it was "beautiful and elegant."
Wade Cota made the judges raise from their feet after singing a rendition of "You Got a Friend in Me" from "Toy Story". Dimitrius Graham later took the stage to sing "You'll Be in My Heart" from "Tarzan". He also earned a standing ovation from the judges in addition to a hug from Katy.
Singing "When She Loved Me" from "Toy Story 2" was Walker Burroughs. Mentor Rebel Wilson helped him fix a pitchy note, resulting in a beautiful performance. As for Madison VanDenburg, she performed "How Far I'll Go" from "Moana". She awed everyone when she flawlessly hit her big final note. "You surpassed any version [of that song] I ever heard," Luke raved.
Laine Hardy opted to sing "Oo-De-Lally" from "Robin Hood" as he played guitar for the performance. Rounding out the night was Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon, who sang "candle on the Water" from "Pete's Dragon".
It was time to hear the results. Moving on to the next round were Laine, Madison, Alejandro, Jeremiah, Walker, Laci, Wade, and Alyssa. The judges had one save one of the eliminated singers, Dimitrius and Uche, but they opted not to use it.
