Gospel shows out on Americal Idol

We don’t get to see this often, but last night a contestant on American Idol performed a Gospel song. In an effort to get voted into the top 13 as a judge’s wild card, Stefano Langone performed “I Need You Now” by Smokie Norful.

I thought his performance was outstanding. It apppears that people around the country thought the same thing too. Shortly after the song was over, “Smokie Norful” started trending on Twitter. Here are some of the comments people posted on Twitter:

“I Need You Now by Smokie Norful. Thank you Stefano Langone for introducing it.”

“Stefano from #americanidol almost brought me to tears when he sung “I need you now” by. Smokie Norful”

“Personal Bookmark: Smokie Norful. Never heard of him before this episode of American Idol.”

I said this on Twitter last night and I’ll say it again. No matter what happens in this competition, I’m sure that Stefano Langone will be offered a record deal from a Christian/Gospel label.

I’m not sure what this exposure will do for Smokie Norful. I’m sure that many people went and downloaded “I Need You Now” off of iTunes. No matter what happens it was a pretty enjoyable experience, even if it was for one night.
