The American Idol Season 9 Top 7 finalists, who were mentored by singer/songwriter Alicia Keys, had to be inspired by their song choices to inspire us during the live show dedicated to inspirational songs on Tuesday (April 20). Aaron Kelly chose of one of the cheesiest most predictable inspirational songs, R. Kellyâ€™s â€œI Believe I Can Flyâ€ (watch video below).
Aaron apparently has been singing this song since the tender age of 5. We really wish he hadnâ€™t chosen that songâ€¦ the song is too big, too iconic and that performance was just so completely boring yet kind of good. Seriously! I love Aaron! The judges pretty much loved it. Simon Cowell concluded that it was a good performance but “in the real world, if we’d heard that on the radio, I would have turned it off in ten seconds.” Thatâ€™s my point!
