It was “Now and Then” week on American Idol, which means the contestants chose one song from 2000 or later, and one soul song from the past. While it was nice to see the Idol-ers dig into some classic soul tracks for the “Then” half, the “Now” portion really brought out some stellar performances.

Watch all the performances from the Top 7 below!
