American Idol Top 11: Vote for the Best and Worst Performances from 'Motown Night'

Golden oldies were front and center tonight as the American Idol Top 11 tackled songs from the Motown Records vaults. Indeed, not only were the compositions in question two or three times the age of most contestants, but the majority had already been performed (sometimes quite memorably) by previous Idol contestants.

That said, there wasn’t a single train wreck performance in the bunch — a vast improvement over last week’s Songs from the Year You Were Born — setting us up for what’s likely to be the first genuinely suspenseful results show of the Season 10 finals. Check out the full set list below, then head to our polls to vote for your favorite and least favorite performances. I’ll be back in the wee small hours of the morning with my full episode recap [UPDATE: Full recap is now live, so click here to read it]; follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV for an up-to-the-second alert when that exhaustive descent into Idol minutiae gets published. And do head to the comments section to sound off on what you saw! (p.s. Can we get a slow clap for Jennifer Lopez’s incisive, constructive critiques? JAY-LOW! JAY-LOW! JAY-LOW!)
