Hollie: best performance ever on first song/back to ordinary on second song.
Phillip: best performance ever on first song/good enough on poor choice for second song.
Colton: I didn't like either song choice, but he performed okay.
Jessica: She's a little pro, but now a little lost. Second song got screamy -- a first for her.
Skylar: did well with first song, although not my fave/reverted to screamy on second song which she hadn't done in weeks.
Joshua: Joshua needs to sing spiritual songs ... that's his niche. Wish he'd dial back his wailing to about 90% max.
Elise: Girl is a great singer, but not a star. Defeatist/victim attitude, arguing against the input instead of receiving it like Colton did tonight.
- Philip poked his head out as a contender for the first time tonight, but pulled back on second song.
- I think Elise leaves, but more for her attitude than her great voice.
