Let the fan wars begin! Actually, on second thought…I’m just going to enjoy this super fun mashup of two American Idol performances posted by the official YouTube channel.
Season 7 winner David Cook performed The Beatles iconic tune, “Eleanor Rigby” for the Lennon-McCartney themed Top 12. Season 15 2nd runner-up, Dalton Rapattoni sang it at Top 6 for the American Idol All Time Song Book theme as a homage to David’s cover.
Check out the edit below. Both alums responded to the clip on twitter:
@AmericanIdol @DaltonRapattoni Dalton wins the hairstyle battle, for sure. He killed that performance, as well.
