American Idol 2013: Janelle Arthur Performs ‘I Will’

AI12-janelle-arthur-I-will

Country gal (am I really using the word gal?) Janelle Arthur closed out the night last night on American Idol 2013 with her version of Beatles ballad I Will.

Anyone who knows American Idol, knows the last spot is called the “pimp spot” so it must’ve been good. It was pretty good. But was it pimp spot worthy? Nah. Candice Glover, Angie Miller and Kree Harrison had much better performances. But when you’re trying to make a girl win your show, you have to put one of the less popular ones in the pimp spot so that she can edge out one of the guys.

OK, enough of me calling out Idol’s calculated measures this season. So let’s get to Janelle’s performance. It was sweet and tender and twangy. Have a listen and let us know what you think.

What did you think of her performance of I Will? Does Janelle Arthur have what it takes to become the next American Idol?
