Dalton Rapattoni “Rebel Yell” “American Idol” Video: Watch Top 24 Performance!
Dalton Rapattoni gave a “tremendous” performance of “Rebel Yell” during Wednesday’s “American Idol.” Watch below!
As Gossip Cop reported, Rapattoni was welcomed into the season 15 Top 24 earlier this month, with the judges praising the unconventional twists he puts on songs. Now with hopes of making it into the Top 14, he continued to show his punk side with Billy Idol’s “Rebel Yell.” The 20-year-old vocal coach had Jennifer Lopez bouncing in her seat, Keith Urban singing along with a smile, and Harry Connick, Jr., well, staring intently.
Lopez couldn’t stop screaming afterward at first, and the exclaimed, “Dalton! You know, I don’t care about anything except that made me feel something. First of all, you’re pretty as can be. I can’t with him.” She added more seriously, “Beyond that, it was a great performance… I loved it.”
Connick told Rapattoni, “It was absolutely a phenomenal performance. It was a great interpretation of that song. You sang the lyrics. It was powerful. I thought it was absolutely tremendous.”
And Urban said to the aspiring star, “You never disappoint. That’s what I love about you. I know you’re gonna do something with a song that we know, but you’re gonna make it — you’re gonna Dalton-ize it… I love that you got your own genre. It’s very cool.”
It will be revealed on Thursday’s results show who from Rapattoni’s group of 12 will join last week’s safe contestants to make up the Top 14. With five at risk of elimination, he’ll have to be among the seven who make the cut. Gossip Cop will have full video of his performance shortly, but check out the clip below in the meantime!
