Erika Van Pelt singing next on "American Idol," doing Heart's "What About Love." Smart pick, it's an appealing song and fits her strong, no-nonsense voice.
Earnest tone with some intensity; putting her all into the performance, and has total command of the stage. Not blowing me away, but a good start for her.
"There's something magical about having the confidence you just had," says Steven Tyler. Jennifer Lopez wanted to see even more power, "let loose!" Randy Jackson liked how she showed some restraint, compares her to Adele.
