The American Idol Season 9 Top 5 finalists, who were mentored by actor/musician Harry Connick, Jr., tackled some songs from Frank Sinatraâ€™s musical repertoire in a night dedicated to â€˜The Voiceâ€™ on Tuesday (May 4). Aaron Kelly dared to sing one of the most iconic and beautiful songs of Sinatraâ€™s songbook, â€œFly Me To The Moonâ€ (watch video below).
Aaron delivered a good performance. Randy Jackson and Ellen DeGeneres loved it. But both Kara DioGuardi and Simon Cowell thought Aaron lacked charisma and the confidence necessary to perform such a big song. Simon also said Aaronâ€™s vocals were a bit â€œcornyâ€ and this time, we knew exactly what he meant.
