Dalton Rapattoni Hey There Delilah American Idol Video


Dalton Rapattoni sang “Hey There Delilah” for his “American Idol” Top 10 performance on Thursday. Check out the video below!

As Gossip Cop reported, Rapattoni was cut a huge break on Wednesday when the judges chose him to automatically go from the Top 14 to the Top 10 without having to perform. He was one of only four contestants who were given that advantage, while all the remaining singers had to compete for the six final slots. It was a huge vote of confidence from the panel, but that’s where their power ended.

On Thursday, Rapattoni had to sing for American for the first time. It also marked the first time in the competition he and his fellow aspiring stars had to sing live. For the big moment, punk rocker went with “Hey There Delilah” by the Plain White Ts.

Keith Urban said afterwards, “You come out with such confidence… It was like electric barnyard.” Jennifer Lopez laughed about the last remark, before saying, “You have a lot of heart.” She added, “You did a really good job.” Kelly Clarkson expressed, “You are so comfortable on stage,” noting how it seems “like home for you.” She further said, “I love every time you sing.” And Hary Connick, Jr. told Rapattoni he was “batting 1,000.”

Rapattoni will find out next week if tonight’s performance scored him enough votes go on to the season 15 Top 8. Check out the video below pf Dalton Rapattoni singing “Hey There Delilah”!
