American Idol Instant Recap: Dalton Rapattoni, “Everybody Wants To Rule the World”
For a dude who’s gotten this far turning songs into 80s-sounding synth hits, giving Dalton an 80s synth hit was quite the mindfuck. Don’t know if it messed with his head or what, but it was not the right song. (this is the part every Dalton fan will go nuts over and think I’m “hating” on him.)
My theory has always been you win American Idol in the Top 3 and that was not an American Idol-winning performance. He had such a great start with his first performance, but that set him back a bit. If Trent comes through, Dalton could see the MacKenzie voters head in that direction.
