Dalton Rapattoni “Eleanor Rigby” “American Idol” Video: Watch Top 6 Performance And Duet!
Dalton Rapattoni performed “Eleanor Rigby” for his Top 6 performance on Thursday’s “American Idol.” Watch below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, Rapattoni has widely been considered one of the frontrunners during the “Idol” farewell season, in part because of the way he reinvents songs to have a pop-punk flavor. Last week, however, he faltered, with the judges not feeling his typical uniqueness. This time around, Rapattoni had the chance to make a comeback, and he had to do so using a song from the so-called “American Idol Song Book.”
The aspiring star chose The Beatles classic “Eleanor Rigby,” which was memorably performed by “American Idol” winner David Cook during season seven. Now on season 15, Rapattoni made his own mark with the track. Harry Connick, Jr. called it a great performance and “a great song choice,” adding, “You pushed it as high as you could.” Keith Urban expressed that “like a good waffle iron, you made an impression.” And Jennifer Lopez exclaimed, “You nailed it, and it was awesome.” She further told Rapattoni, “You impressed everybody.”
Earlier in the two-hour broadcast, Rapattoni paired up with MacKenzie Bourg for a duet of the Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way,” but the judges weren’t happy with the song choice. Check out the two performance clips below!
