Revisiting the heyday of department stores and five-and-dimes

Danny Gokey sings with Lionel Richie

The usually understated Lionel Richie and the gravelly tone of Danny Gokey didn't seem like it would mesh. It did, though. Like some of the other "Idol" performances, Gokey showed a lot of reverence for the "All Night Long" hitmaker, but also threw a bit of himself in there when he could. Overall, not as harmonic as Allison Iraheta and Cyndi Lauper, but well done.
