American idol still suspense me in terms of reality show. this one is totally a hit.
Danny Gokey – Dance Little Sister Dance by Terence Trent D’Arby
Randy Jackson: The way to jump it off tonight. Sounded good. That was dope for me.
Kara DioGuardi: This keeps you in his money spot but the dancing was a little to gyrating for me.
Paula Abdul: I think you did really good. You let that magic part of your voice carry on.
Simon Cowell: Vocally very very good. My problem was the toy saxophone solo in the middle. I think it was the wrong song.
Randy Jackson: I know that right now it is about who is going to win this thing. This is the kind of artist you can be. Nice, very nice.
Kara DioGuardi: It was a confident performance but at this stage you have to be hitting it out of the park. I wanted you to make it more your own. Take more chances.
Paula Abdul: That song sits in the right place with your voice. There was a bum note there that was loud but I am proud of you.
Simon Cowell: It was the original but not quite as good.
Randy Jackson: You are still in the zone. You have been hot since day 1. Unbelievable vocals. You are a really talented guy.
Kara DioGuardi: You are an amazing strategist. You can change up the melodies and make it unbelievable. You did your own version.
Paula Abdul: It was one brilliant song and one brilliant performance.
Simon Cowell: I thought that was a brilliant song choice. You worked out what you wanted to do with it and it was a brilliant performance.
Randy Jackson: You showed you are here because you can really really sing. Mad vocals.
Kara DioGuardi: Everything you didn’t do in the first performance you did here. Stunning.
Paula Abdul: You left all of us breathless. You infused your own thing into it. You nailed it.
Simon Cowell: I wouldn’t have done the same arrangement. This is a singing competition and I would call that a vocal masterclass.
Randy Jackson: This is gonna be one of the toughest voting nights. I like that version better than the original. You are in it to win it.
Kara DioGuardi: Why didn’t you do that with Apologize. That was brave. Perfect, the tone, the pitch.
Paula Abdul: You sang a song about Simon Cowell. This is what keeps you relevant.
Simon Cowell: I had written you out of the competition but that has changed after that performance.
Randy Jackson: You are one of the best we have ever had on this stage. You should make a rock album. You are a rock star.
Kara DioGuardi: Amazing. We will see you at the finals.
Paula Abdul: You set the bar so high in the sky. We will be seeing you next week and many years after that.
Simon Cowell: It is very easy to assume you will sail through to the final.
