Tuesday night was contestants’ choice on Idol, allowing the singers to pick any song they want as long as it was a popular download on iTunes. They also, as usual, got to pick their outfit with the help of the Idol stylists.
Allison Iraheta, 16, picked No Doubt‘s “Don’t Speak,” which got her decent reviews from the judges, and a decidedly pop-punk ensemble of spiky pink hair, a ruffled pink and white dress, black leggings and white shoes.
“What are you wearing?” asked Randy Jackson. “I don’t get this ensemble tonight.”
Kara DioGuardi told her, “You don’t need to dress the part, you are rock,” adding that her outfit was, “a little distracting.”
While Paula Abdul had nothing but praise for Allison’s performance, Simon Cowell said she looked “like something out of The Addams Family.”
