Erika Van Pelt gets complimented on her look on 'American Idol'

Erika Van Pelt singing Bryan Adams' "Heaven" next on "American Idol," mentor Jimmy Iovine says simply, "you sound great girl."

She doesn't seem quite at ease at the start, a bit too intense, with an almost frozen smile. Loosening up as she sings; problem is she doesn't really have an identity for me.

Everyone needs a shorthand moniker -- girl with the big voice, country girl, alternative guy. Not sure what hers is yet. Performance was fine, but not memorable.

"I think you were too busy, all over it," says Steven Tyler. Jennifer Lopez agrees, and didn't like the arrangement but says "you look amazing tonight, the best you've looked."

Hmm, the kiss of death to compliment them on their looks. "I kind of liked it, for me it was an 8 out of 10," says Randy Jacskon. Warns her not to try to do too much with a classic song.
