I think it was Entertainment Tonight where I heard all of that.
He had also rearranged songs including "You Keep Me Hangin' On" and "You Give Love a Bad Name".
The groundbreaking performance was later ranked #6 in top 20 all-time greatest American Idol performances on Several original versions of songs Lewis performed re-entered Billboard Hot Digital Songs chart shortly after the show.
Lewis' first performance on-stage, "Somewhere Only We Know" by Keane, re-entered the chart at #26 (#19 on Hot Digital Tracks chart); "Time of the Season", a The Zombies' hit in 1968, reached #67; Ryan Adams’s “When the Stars Go Blue” hit #39 (#37 on Hot Digital Tracks chart); Bon Jovi's "You Give Love a Bad Name" shot up to #29; "This Love" and "She Will Be Loved" by Maroon 5 jumped to #41 and #45 respectively.
Jon Bon Jovi, the lead singer of the band who also coached the contestants that week, noted that Lewis' rendition was "rolling the dice".
Cowell even predicted that 50% of the audience "would absolutely hate it" but another half would love it.

Randy Jackson believed that it was the most original performance ever on the show.Being a member of the a cappella group Kickshaw for four years after graduating from high school in 1999, Lewis worked with the group on a 10-track album titled Put It In the Microphone but he quit the group in 2002 to become a solo musician going by the stage name Bshorty, which was basically inspired by the nicknames of the members of 311 and "aggressive inline-skate videos during the 1990s", "doing drum and bass shows, and conscious hip hop shows, singer-songwriter stuff, and electronica and hip hop".He made connections with various musicians by performing regularly in many venues in Seattle such as Nectar Lounge in Fremont, Sea Monster Lounge, Lo-Fi Performance Gallery, Jet Deck in Everett (now in Mill Creek) and hosted shows like The Digital Lounge shows at To ST.Although Lewis' first performance in the semi-final weeks, "Somewhere Only We Know", was pure singing and inspired judges to make comments about his contemporary vibe, his signature performance on the show was probably "You Give Love a Bad Name" by Bon Jovi.The memorable performance received a standing ovation from the audience and Paula Abdul, who commented "that brought down the house".Before Idol, he was working on a solo album with a number of tracks finished.
