Video: Contestant Elise Testone Rocks 'American Idol' with Led Zeppelin's 'Whole Lotta Love'
Sagging ratings? Trot out the Led Zeppelin!
American Idol, which has been catching some flack this season -- its 11th -- for its lower-than-usual ratings and a panel of judges (including Aerosmith's Steven Tyler) who refuse to say anything even remotely useful, critical or mean to the contestants, got slightly more interesting last night when contestant Elise Testone belted out Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love."
She actually did an awesome job -- although, was she supposed to sing over the guitar solo? People should never sing over guitar solos ...
Testone got a standing ovation from the panel, which also includes Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson.
“I wasn’t sure if you were going to pull that off,” Tyler said. “Nobody can pull that song off. You made Robert Plant proud tonight, girl.”
