Vincent Powell Mesmerizes With Lenny Williams’ ‘Cause I Love You’ on ‘American Idol’


The soul singing is back on ‘American Idol’, folks and we’ve got Vincent Powell to thank.

Paying homage to the Motown glory days, Powell’s rendition of Lenny Williams’ classic ‘Cause I Love’ was flawless. This was one of those performances where there would be panties thrown on the stage, as Nicki Minaj would say.

The best part of this set — Powell’s singing aside — were the reactions in the audience and from the judges. Contestant Zoanette Johnson was in the background going nuts, Nicki was blushing and Randy Jackson looking like he was at a D’Angelo show were just a few signs that Powell commanded the stage.

Nicki admitted that his vocals hit her somewhere –where exactly, we’ll let you ponder that. Her remarks proved that he was making it through to the top 20.
