Hollie Cavanagh turns in 'beautiful and intimate' performance on 'American Idol'

Hollie Cavanagh, whose family is British, is singing Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Love" as the five "American Idol" finalists do songs from the UK.

It's slow, emotional and compelling -- she's such a strong vocalist. Sits on the piano the whole time; problem is not sure it'll be that memorable by the end of the night, not a song a lot of Americans know.

"I loved it, I loved it, I loved it," says Steven Tyler. "You nailed it, and I don't even know that song."

Jennifer Lopez thought it was "beautiful and intimate." Good summary.

Randy Jackson says, "I thought it was unbelievable," calls her a dark horse to win it since she's "peaking now at the right time."

I've always liked her vocally, but she doesn't have the fan base to win this.
