Seventeen-year-old channeling Olivia Newton-John

Seventeen-year-old Alaina Whittaker, the youngest contestant and apparently another Fox favorite, is trying to sing Olivia Newton-John's "Hopelessly Devoted" from "Grease."

It may be a bit too much for her. It is not an easy song to do, and Alaina missed some of the early notes, but is closing the song well.

I have no idea how the judges will go on this one.

Not the right song, Randy Jackson said. "It wasn't my favorite for you."

Paula liked it (of course). "I didn't think it was as bad as you did," she said.

Simon Cowell said, "It's almost as if your grandmother prepared you for this audition," describing her as "old fashioned, but also called her "one of the dark horses of the competition."
