It's the guys turn to take the American Idol stage, although I'm not looking forward to the Idol judge's critiques. They've got it set in their mind that a girl will win. Which is fine, but let's judge honestly, okay?
Keith - I love you did that song and that suited your voice. You showed good control.
Nicki - I think I would be willing to stay. I liked it.
Randy - I like it more than I liked it last week. My problem was it never left first gear. It laid there flat.
Mariah - I actually liked this a lot.
Keith - why did you choose that song? I love your voice and your spirit, but that wasn't the best song for what you do well.
Nicki - you were billing yourself tonight. You got your mojo back. But she didn't like it.
Randy - you sound like you're straining.
Mariah - I was like, I enjoyed your ballads.
Keith - you have a huge range, but something just feels not truly genuine.
Nicki - where's my little baby at, Charlie? What happened? I don't want to see the ponytail or the earring. I told you in Hollywood, don't change!
Randy - I'm worried for you. The front part was terrible. At the end, you went to a scream. It didn't all connect at all. I didn't get it.
Mariah - you've already gotten a nice earful from everybody, so... I think you add diversity to the group.
Keith - the song choice was perfect. I love you playing the piano and singing. I think you were really nervous in spots, but I saw through that.
Nicki - I felt it was pretty, and that was your comfort zone. I don't know if that's going to get billions of votes.
Randy - I don't know if that was your best performance. Who are you really?
Mariah - I was happy to see you at the piano. I feel like you really kicked in at the end. Mumbling as she does.
Keith - just in the nick of time. I believed those lyrics. It's beautiful. Your voice is recognizable. Loved it!
Nicki - what did you do differently from the first time? I love you. You're one of a kind. I'm glad we found you.
Randy - you grabbed someone's attention with your first note. Love that song.
Mariah - so you did it again. It was a tearful moment. So proud of you.
Keith -what sort of artist do you see yourself as? I still feel like you can ease it in more. You keep underestimating what you can do.
Nicki - what a very odd comment, Keith. Is he believable? Keith said there were moments, no. I thought it was a solid performance. Complimented Keith's critique.
Randy - the beginning was amazing, but you changed your tone and it wasn't pleasant.
Mariah - I couldn't even decipher her words. She talked about Jimmy, Keith, the crowd... Ugh!
Keith -that was really good tonight. I love the way you connect with you.
Nicki - is your favorite color pink? Yes. I loved it, I love you. It's like you have an album out already.
Randy - I think this guy believes he's in it to win it and I think he is!! You can see his whole heart light up!
Mariah - again, trying to decipher. There's a place where you're singing... this song was a bit low. Or something. But you hit it dead on.
Keith - I believe you can fly. You just ooze everything good and holy.
Nicki - the bar.. this is bigger than American Idol. When you make people feel like they can fly, that's bigger than American Idol.
Randy - that's exactly who you are. The competition started right here.
Mariah - thank you for that performance.
Keith - very beginning was shaky, but then the camera moved away.
Nicki - congratulations.
Randy - you're tone is a tone I really like.
Mariah - that performance was incredible.
Keith - I feel tonight that nerves got on top of your talent.
Nicki - I love that song, but you were excited from the last performance. Your voice didn't come alive in that song.
Randy - this wasn't your best performance. You over shot it.
Mariah - I hope America sees it too.
The last few Idol performances got robbed. As usual, American Idol ran out of time. But that could have been planned.
