Platt, who goes simply by Mara Justine on the rebooted show, sang "Run To You", from 1992's "The Bodyguard" soundtrack - a mammoth and challenging ballad - and was almost flawless in her version, leaving "Idol" judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie dumbfounded as she sang. After the performance, Perry was literally on her knees and said, "Wig flew!" Luke Bryan praised Vox for "bringing the house down" and Ritchie said Vox is "a force to be reckoned with". All three judges then spontaneously walked over to a crying Marcio and gave him a group hug.
Below is all the information you need to watch American Idol online and live Sunday to see the rest of the solo performances.
Garrett Jacobs was just O.K. with his performance of Shawn Mendes' "Treat You Better". Bryan gave him a backhanded compliment by saying, "You're not the best singer, but you're such a dadgum heartthrob". But Katy called his performance "a rocky road", and Lionel said he wasn't concentrating on his vocals. Perry called her "infectious", while Richie said she was giving "look, sound and attitude, all three in one package". Caleb, who revealed that he'd lost 70 pounds, sang Thomas Rhett's smash hit "Die a Happy Man". Luke called her, "one of the best singers we have", while Katy advised her to own her talent and, "jump into the stardust". Bryan admitted, "You didn't have me, until tonight".
