Nick Boddington performs the Goo Goo Dolls' “Iris” in American Idol 2013 guys semi-finals.
Keith Urban says there were some issues, he was nervous in certain spots, but it was beautiful tonight and he really feels it when Nick sings. Nicki Minaj says this is her favorite song of all time and she wishes he might have kept to the melody a bit more. She says it is good he went back to the piano and this performance was true to him. Randy Jackson says he doesn’t think it was Nick’s best performance, but he is happy Nick made the song his own. He thinks it was a good, solid performance. Mariah Carey was also happy to see Nick back at the piano. She says he really kicked in at the end and hopes the voters will consider all his performances.
