Idol: Tim Urban has “All My Loving”


Tim Urban looked like one of the Beatles on American Idol last night and he actually impressed the judges with his solid performance of “All My Loving.” He had plenty of reasons to smile after he was finished and he just might find himself in the top 8!

Simon Cowell, who had once remarked that Tim did not even deserve to be in the top 24 (he replaced someone at the last minute) said of Tim’s performance: “I thought you did really well tonight with that song. I really do. What I liked about it was is that there were no gimmicks. It was just the right thing to do, you and the guitar. You didn’t try to over sing it. It really suited your voice.”

Simon was impressed with Tim’s courage to take on the relentless criticism “like a man.” “You have put it in the right context,” Simon also told Tim. “You’ve been given a great opportunity. And if you have to take a few barbs along the way … so what? This is a shortcut to fame, and you’ve handled yourself very, very well. And I’m very, very proud of you.”
