Logically, Michael J. Woodward isn’t likely to be your final pick on “American Idol,” but his Disney night performance of “Beauty and the Beast” is any indication, this kid has a lot of tricks left up his sleeve.
At first, I shuddered at the thought of someone singing a Celine Dion tune that isn’t named Celine Dion, but Michael squelched that when we worked his way through the song to hold a note for 11 seconds halfway through. The only person more surprised than me at this was Lionel Richie. Well, Katy Perry was also in shock.
Michael made it to the Top 7.
