Kris Allen vs. Jason Castro! Archie vs. Taylor! The Idol Bracket Tourney Rages On!

Round 2 of TVLine.com’s American Idol All-Time Greatest Performance Bracket Tournament continues today with a series of performances so memorable, all you need are the song titles to know which contestants sang ’em: “Heartless” vs. “Hallelujah”; “Imagine” vs “Living for the City”; “It’s All Wrong But It’s All Right” vs. “I Walk the Line.”

Every day around 1:00 p.m. ET over the next few weeks, we’ll launch a new set of duels to the death that will have you joyously reliving your favorite Idol moments and weeping into your clenched fists over the fact that you have to choose between ’em.
