Tim Urban is singing "I Can't Help Falling In Love" on "American Idol," one of my fave Elvis songs. Adam Lambert calls it "pretty," pushes him to go falsetto at the end. Hmmm, looking forward to this, which is odd since I don't like Tim.

This is good, just pure, his vocal and the acoustic guitar. A bit rushed, but some nice tenderness there. And he just soars on the lyrics, his earnest-sound works really well here.

His audience is gonna love this. even though he doesn't do the falsetto at the end, which he totally should have. Would've made this one of the best performances this season, as it is his best.

Randy "actually likes it," Ellen "really enjoyed it," Kara says her favorite Tim performance ever, authentic and current. Simon says you've "gone from zero to hero in two weeks." 

I wonder if this'll be a turning point for Tim. He should've listened to Adam, though.
