American Idol: Which Favorite ‘Underwhelmed’ The Judges

By Radar Staff

Phillip Phillips has impressed this season, and his blend of his old school aura and youth led judge Steven Tyler to brand him a “Steve McQueen, Johnny Cash kind of guy.”

Unfortunately, Phillips’ take on Maroon 5’s Give a Little More left judges Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson wanting … well, a little more.

“It was a little bit underwhelming for the Phillip Phillips that I love — it wasn’t everything that I know that you can give us.,” J.Lo told the 21-year-old pawn shop employee.

Jackson pointed out the Georgia native underwhelmed at a time he could least afford to, telling him, “I don’t know if it was that ‘Wow’ kind of a moment.”

It wasn’t all gloom and doom for the remaining seven Wednesday: Colton Dixon‘s soul-drenched rendition of Eminem‘s Love the Way You Lie had Tyler telling him he was studio-ready; Joshua Ledet‘s frenetic take on Bruno Mars‘s Runaway Baby earned him the coveted standing O from the judges; and Elise Testone delivered a solid version of Lady Gaga‘s You and I that had Jackson proclaiming, “America, Elise is back!”

Someone’s getting eliminated when American Idol’s 11th season continues Thursday at 8/7c on Fox.
