SHARE Inspirational week for the final 8 performers

Michael Johns is first up with Aerosmith’s “Dream On.”

He’s wearing an ascot. That’s a look that American guys can never get away with, least they hear some silly “Scooby Doo” reference.

Randy Jackson says this is one of the important weeks. He thought it was a pretty good song choice, but felt there were pitch problems. “This is about being the best singer, not finding the person following his dreams.”

Paula Abdul thinks it was a perfect song choice. “You sound as good as you look.”

Simon Cowell thought it was a very good performance. “I don’t like it when you do an impersonation of a rock star. I thought it was a little bit wannabe-ish.”

Aren’t all “Idol” contestants wannabes? That’s why they’re on the show.
