Beside singing their second single from their album 'The Circle' on the May 12 show, the band also shared about how they manage to continue having the success they've had over several decades.
Bon Jovi have taken the stage of "American Idol" on Wednesday night, May 12. The band, which were formed in 1983, performed "Superman Tonight", the second single from their eleventh studio album, "The Circle".
After finishing their "Superman Tonight", the show's host Ryan Seacrest congratulated them on their status as number one touring band in the world and number one album. The host further asked them about how they manage to continue their success year after year. Lead singer Jon Bon Jovi said, "You know, hard work and good luck. Good friends who have put us in the right places."
"We're humbled. We've crossed generations at this point," Bon Jovi later shared. "It's really great. The sky's the limit. The harder we work, the luckier we get - that's pretty much the way it is."
During the night, Michael "Big Mike" Lynche, the "American Idol" contestant who won American hearts when his wife gave birth to their first child during early audition rounds, was voted off the show. His performance of Michael Jackson's "Will You Be There" on Tuesday, May 11 failed to impress the judges.
Three contestants who remain on "American Idol" are Crystal Bowersox, Lee DeWyze and Casey James. Bowersox, DeWyze and James, who will compete for a place in the finale on May 25, are set to visit their hometowns and their fans next week.
