Teen Covers SOUNDGARDEN's "Black Hole Sun" on American Idol & We're Not Crying

We've written about American Idol contestant Casey Bishop previously, and she continues to kick ass on the show. She caught our attention with her incredible cover of Motley Crue's "Live Wire" and her latest performance has us reaching for the tissues.

Bishop, who is only 16, covered the Soundgarden classic "Black Hole Sun" (damn I feel old just calling that a classic). Anyway, she did an incredible job worth highlighting. It's awesome to see rock being properly represented on mainstream music television. She even dueted with Incubus' Brandon Boyd recently.

One of the judges, Lionel Richie compared her to Janis Joplin, which is an awesome compliment. Watch the incredible performance below.
