Top 6 Whaaat?! (Said in a Randy Jackson tone).

Last night's show was a Carole King sing along. Ms. King has an incredible songbook and the Idols tore down the house with some of them.

I was really impressed with three people -- James, Haley and Casey. Each of their performances was unique.

James got my vote, last night, singing "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow." It was beautiful and J.Lo said it best: He is consistent every week. The arrangement of this piece was just amazing! I really liked hearing his tone by itself at the beginning. It was heartfelt and really showed the sensitivity of his voice.

The Casey/Haley duet was my favorite of all the duets because it was believable. They have a great chemistry compared to the other four. Casey is just so musical. He's only 20 and seems like a veteran in this competition. He got a lot of help from the musicians on stage, bringing the energy out in full force. I really enjoyed how bluesy this rendition was. It fit his voice perfectly.

Haley was my second favorite last night. She sang "Beautiful," and the arrangement shares the same word. It was BEAUTIFUL! The band was killing it for her and she was right there with them. I wish they had ended the show on this note.

All in all, it was a great night! Three amazing performers and three great performances. It's getting close to the finale now and these contestants really need to push it to the limit.

Love and happiness,
