Nick Merico is the first to perform and he sings the heavy-hitting ballad, “When I Was Your Man” by Bruno Mars. Guess what, he advances to the Top 20. Next up is Makayla Brownlee, who hums “More Hearts Than Mine” by Ingrid Andress. Makayla gets appreciation from the judges for her fighting spirit, despite her heart condition, but unfortunately, she does not proceed to the next round.
DeWayne Crocker Jr. sings “Old Town Road” by Lil’ Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus, with a reggae twist. Yes, the judges love his risk-taking skills and give him a go-ahead! Camryn Leigh Smith performs a gospel song, “Break Every Chain” by Tasha Cobbs Leonard. But her voice fails to connect with the judges and she is sent back home. Next we meet Devon Alexander, Jordan Jones, and Geena. Well, all of them are evicted.
Louis Knight sings “Castle on the Hill” by Ed Sheeran and he is selected to go to the next stage because the judges see so much potential in him. Francisco Martin delivers a fantastic rendition of “Fallen” by Harry Styles and earns a spot in the Top 20. Jovin Webb sings “You Are the Best Thing” by Ray Lomontagne and he is also given a go ahead! Faith Becnel hums “Ain’t Nobody” by Rufus and Chaka Khan and yes, moves forward to be in the Top 20.
Amber Fiedler is next and she performs to “Good Kisser” by Lake Street Dive. Her performance is really off and she is asked to leave. Just Sam sings “Como La Flor” by Selena and just because of her huge transformation, she makes it to the Top 20. Jonny West sings “You Found Me” by The Fray, and well, he manages to stay in the contest. Finally, Dillon James is the last performer for the week.
