American Idol: Recap of Top 3 performance show

The Top 3 -- made up of Crystal Bowersox, Lee DeWyze and Casey James -- performed last night and we finally got "the moment" of the season.

Last year, it was Adam Lambert's performance of "Mad World" that earned a rare-as-hen's-teeth standing ovation from judge Simon Cowell. This year, Simon's only standing ovation of the year (so far) was reserved for Lee's superb version of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah", a song performed earlier this season by Tim Urban and a few years ago by Jason Castro. Lee was incredible.

I honestly can't see Casey surviving this week, but stranger things have happened. If the populous state of Texas was voting all night, perhaps we're in for a surprise! I hope not, but you never know. It's time for Casey to go.

Who will make it into next week's final? Tune in to Fox tonight at 10 p.m. Atlantic / 9 p.m. Eastern!
