Dalton Rapattoni Gets J-Lo Screaming His Name With ‘Rebel Yell’ on American Idol 2016 (VIDEO)
Dalton Rapattoni wowed the judges with his performance of “Rebel Yell” by Billy Idol on the American Idol 2016 Top 24 Semi-Final #2 on Wednesday, February 17, 2016!
I LOVE this arrangement. It keeps the rock spirit of the original song, but the tempo is slowed to make it more of a dirge than a song of rebellion. This is easily the best performance of the night. Dalton has the look, the sound, and the artistry of a winner, in my opinion. J-Lo screams Dalton’s name as loud as the girls in the audience. This is insane! She notes how he’s pretty as can be, before adding that it was a great performance, because…well, it was. For his part, Harry thought it was powerful, and praises Dalton for interpreting the lyrics, calling it “absolutely tremendous”. Keith loves how he “Daltonizes” every song, saying it’s like he has his own genre. That’s actually a pretty great way of putting it. Watch the video below:
