For her first song on the American Idol 2013 Top 5 performance night, Janelle Arthur performed Vince Gill's "When I Call Your Name," a song that used to soothe her when she was a baby.
Nicki Minaj says her “little marshmallow” needs to stay on the guitar like tonight because she tends to oversing when she doesn’t have it. She loves her tone tonight though and it was like being at her concert. Randy Jackson thinks she did a really great job and she is back where she belongs tonight. Mariah Carey says she really believed her tonight and Janelle was singing with her whole heart. She says Janelle needs to keep positive and not let any negativity get to her. Keith Urban agrees with Nicki that Janelle’s voice is beautiful, but he didn’t hear the emotion in the song and says she was thinking too much. Mariah yells out, “Maybe it’s a girl thing, but you brought me to tears!”
