The judges, producers and singers each got to pick one song. The singers will perform all three tonight.
Abdul picked “And So It Goes” by Billy Joel for David Archuleta. It’s moody and slow. Archuleta sings half of it with his eyes closed (something he needs to pay attention to and not do).
“Billy Joel thing works well on you. Would have loved to see you at the piano playing it,” Randy Jackson said.
“I really felt you were a storyteller tonight,” Abdul said.
“It was good, I don’t think it was outstanding,” Cowell said.
