Burnell Taylor Performs "Let It Be" on American Idol

New Orleans native Burnell Taylor is blossoming into a big star.  He proved his worthiness last night (March 20) by taking on the Beatles classic "Let It Be."  Burnell confessed he wasn't familar with the Beatles music and based on the top nine performances, the same could be said for most of the finalists.

Burnell's rendition of "Let It Be" clearly put him in the top tier of performers based on the celebrity judges.

Judges comments: Keith: He comes from such a soulful place. Nicki: He didn’t sing the song, he caressed it. He was delicate with it. She felt like she was in church. Randy: He didn’t know it and look at what he did to it. He made it his own. Mariah: He gave a genuine, heartfelt performance and he is always consistent.

Peep the video below and let us know what you thought of his performance?
