I loved his performance last night except for the way that he held the mic. That was distracting and irritating. I wanted to tell him to hold the mic up to his mouth.
Unless someone like you cares a lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.

Maybe the way he holds the mic has to do with the fact that he kind of sings out of the corner of his mouth. I don't know. It really doesn't bother me. I'm not a huge country fan, but I absolutely love this kid and would love to see him in the final 2 with James

First time Scotty has really show me something ... best performance.
I gotta get this off my chest: while the kid has a really nice voice, he adds nothing - and I mean NOTHING - fresh to the genre of country music. Everything he does just sounds stale to me... like a really talented kid rehashing a lot of country music that's already been done and polished. Which is what he's truly all about, no?
Add to this that he's kinda funny-looking (and let's face it, he is) and his over-the-top mugging while he's performing.
Likeable I can understand. But the next American Idol? Really?
Coach Ken: "Kid, you make this kick and you die a legend."
Curt: "Can I pee first?"
He is young and just finding his way. His mannerisms will probably change as he gets feedback. Unfortunately he is not getting anything constructive from the judges. I don't like country music so I can't comment beyond this. He will have a successful career whether he wins or not.
