Hollie Cavanagh soared after climbing an uphill battle on American Idol Wednesday.
Aptly performing “The Climb,” by Miley Cyrus, Cavanagh won not only a standing ovation but, a “Hollie is back” from Randy Jackson.
“Now that’s the Hollie we love,” said Jackson. “Hollie is back. That was beautiful. Perfect song for you.”
Following a tough performance of “Save Me” earlier on, Cavanagh had vowed to step it up when she returned to the stage. That fact was not lost on Jennifer Lopez.
“That was stepping it up,” said Lopez. “It was perfect for you. The emotion. The notes. The belting.”

Steven Tyler agreed.
“You sing a song like it’s going out of style,” said Tyler. “Good for you.”
With that said, do you think Hollie will make it into the top 5 ?
Hollie Cavanagh, along with the remainder of the top 5, will face elimination when American Idol returns.
American Idol, the results show, airs Thursday night at 8pm on FOX.
