Hollie Cavanagh exceeded expectations on American Idol, as she made it to the top four and went out on a high note, delivering a stirring performance of “The Climb.”  During her exit song, Cavanagh moved across the stage to thank her fellow Idols Joshua Ledet (visibly teary during Cavanagh’s elimination), Jessica Sanchez, and Phillip Phillips, as well as the judges.

Reserved during the early rounds of the competition, Cavanagh’s confidence grew over the past several weeks.  Unfortunately, it was her uneven rendition of Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” which eventually sent her home.

Cavanagh remained upbeat, as she expressed her anticipation for the future.  “I’m so excited for the tour and even for the finale,” says Cavanagh.  “All of us will be back together, we’ll all be singing with each other.   And the tour is going to be just crazy.  All ten of us together, it’s going to be a lot of fun and a great show.”
