Martina McBride is not new to the American Idol stage. It's just been a few years!
Last time Martina appeared on Idol, she was a mentor on Season Six when Jordin Sparks was on the show! She returned this past season as a mentor and she performed "Over The Rainbow."
The song is an Academy Award-winning ballad written for the 1939 movie "Wizard of Oz." Originally sung by Judy Garland, the song has been covered by numerous artists, but has gone down in history as the number one "Song of the Century" in a list complied by the Recording industry Association of America.
Watch her beautiful, stripped down version of the iconic song below!
Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true
Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me
Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow. Why then, oh, why can't I?
If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow why, oh, why can't I?
