“American Idol’s” final eight tackled songs Wednesday from the ’80s, a decade judge Steven Tyler confessed wasn’t his best “because I wasn’t really all there for it.”

Someone who seemed right at home during the era of big hair and stonewashed jeans was DeAndre Brackensick, who had one of his best shows yet. DeAndre sang DeBarge, and DeJudges liked it a lot, with Jennifer Lopez calling him her “little shining star.”

After being in the bottom three last week, Skylar Laine brought her A game with the Bette Midler ballad “Wind Beneath My Wings.”

The night’s biggest plaudits went to Joshua Ledet and Jessica Sanchez. The talented teens nailed it both individually and during their duet, “Knew You Were Waiting (For Me).” Randy Jackson called it one of the best performances in “Idol” history, and Lopez speculated that they might be looking at this season’s top two finalists.
