Thanks to gwenkiky for the link, on tonight’s edition of American Idol, contestant Allison Iraheta covered “Don’t Speak,” and did a pretty good job, considering she did flub the words “It looks as though you’re headling low…” hmm, anyways. Her outfit was kind of out-there, but overall it was okay. Thanks to rickey.org, you can check out the video (
hopefully one on YouTube shows up quick!) or download the mp3 of the performance below.

Tuesday night was contestantsâ€™ choice on Idol, allowing the singers to pick any song they want as long as it was a popular download on iTunes. They also, as usual, got to pick their outfit with the help of the Idol stylists.
Allison Iraheta, 16, picked No Doubtâ€™s â€œDonâ€™t Speak,â€ which got her decent reviews from the judges, and a decidedly pop-punk ensemble of spiky pink hair, a ruffled pink and white dress, black leggings and white shoes.
â€œWhat are you wearing?â€ asked Randy Jackson. â€œI donâ€™t get this ensemble tonight.â€
Kara DioGuardi told her, â€œYou donâ€™t need to dress the part, you are [rock],â€ adding that her outfit was, â€œa little distracting.â€
While Paula Abdul had nothing but praise for Allisonâ€™s performance, Simon Cowell said she looked â€œlike something out of The Addams Family.â€
