For Hollie Cavanagh:

Steven

“It’s the first time I really heard you step out and use your blues… “The Steven sang a phrase of the song. “ You showed me you got it in you. Thank you lord, thank you,” he continued.

Jennifer

“I could really feel you attacking the song…it was a different type of Hollie out here tonight…I really felt the energy… It was really good.”

Randy

“Jennifer do you love it? You guys love it.  I love it too…very nice, very nice. You got to do like this; nobody’s watching.”

For Phillip Phillips

Randy

“We’ve got 5 people up, maybe didn’t have as much melody in the chorus…”

Randy

“We were talking about it here. I don’t know the original song…is he singing the same melody…you’re so compelling to watch I just want to stand up on my feet and start clapping…”

Steven

“Bad news, I miss the melody. The good news is you got away with it. You should be so proud.”

For Skylar Laine

Jennifer

“It’s amazing, it really is. It’s just like you attack every single song. Each week we’re seeing how much comfortable your feeling, and that’s what it takes.”

Steven

“You love music and music loves you. Your dress, everything, your voice. I love it. I love it.”

Randy

“You are born to be on the stage, so America get ready… another great performance from you…”You’re so comfortable.  You’re so in your element…”

For Jessica Sanchez

Jennifer

“You’re so grown up there it’s crazy…You are a little of Tina and a little of Beyonce…good job.” And as an afterthought, “I like seeing you throw your hair around.”

Steven

“You did it again…you screamed it… and it still sounded great.”

Randy

”This performance was barely okay for me…the thing that pulled it off is your voice.”

To which Jennifer protested saying they could not compare Jessica, 16, with Tina Turner’s professional performance.

For Joshua Ledet, here are the comments in this post.

All in all, Joshua, Jessica, Skylar, and Hollie earned great comments from the AI 2012 judges. Phillip earned good comments as well, but not as enthusiastic as the rest.

  1. I DON’T KNOW WHO MAKES THE FINAL DECISION ON WHO IS ELIMATED, BUT I THINK THEY SHOULD BE ELIMATED. YOUR JUDGEMENT IS WRONG. COLTON & SKYLAR SHOULD STILL BE THERE. GET RID OF PHILLIP PHILLIPS, HIS SONGS DON’T SOUND GOOD, HIS ACTIONS WHEN HE SINGS(MAKES NOISES) SICK. IF HE DOESN’T GO THIS NEXT WEEK, I AM TURNING TO ANOTHER PROGRAM AND NOT WATCH AM IDOL AGAIN. ALSO HAVE RANDY STOP SAYING DUDE ALL THE TIME, ITS GETTING OLD.

  2. Los que hablan mal de phillips, creo que tienen que ir al fonoaudiologo y hacerce revisar los oidos, este muchacho tiene presencia y ademas una voz original, no imitita a ningun cantante, no creo que sea mejor que jhosua, que en mi opinión tendría que ganar este certamen, pero phillips es, uno de los finalistas….
