After Carrie Underwood's update on how "Idol Gives Back" is fighting against malaria, it's time for a Gokey song.
His tune of choice? "You Are So Beautiful," which Taylor Hicks also coincidentally sang at the Top 3 stage.
Never miss a local story.
Big surpise. Another sappy ballad from Danny Gokey. He takes the stage sitting down, paired with an acoustic guitarist and a string quartet. These notes are a nice departure from the spastic stuff he offered in "Dance Little Sister," but it's still nothing amazing to me. Midway through, Danny enters gospel mode, going back into those big, raspy notes we've seen from him throughout this season. It doesn't do much for me, but his fans will probably eat it up.
Randy: "You are here because you can really, really, really sing."
Kara: "That was stunning."
Paula: "You left all of us breathless."
Simon: "I would call that a vocal master class."
