Elise Testone at home with Billy Joel, gets judges to stand on 'American Idol'

Elise Testone wants to sing Billy Joel's "Vienna" on "American Idol," mentor Jimmy Iovine says he's worried about her singing a song nobody will know. Guest mentor Diddy is willing to try and help her work it out.

Song fits her well, her tone is perfect for it; smokey and kinetic. She's a bit limited because the song's not that strong, but you can totally imagine her performing this in a club somewhere, and she's putting her all into it.

Judges give her a standing ovation; I think some of that though is they've been rooting for her to stick around and want to give her a boost with the voters.

"You were beautiful," gushes Steven Tyler. "I'm so happy for you," says Jennifer Lopez, who loved her confidence and personality in addition to her voice.

Randy Jackson claims she had a "moment" with her vocals tonight, calls it "unbelievable."
