The them this week is Soul/R&B. Usher is the mentor.
Michael Lynche sang “Ready for Love” by India Arie. I loved this performance. Mike kept it simple with tender vocals and acoustic guitar. He was so completely in his element, and he connected with the song. Randy said Mike is in the zone and he's loving every performance. He said it wasn't an exciting performance, but it's good to pull it back every now and then. Ellen said it was beautiful and she loved it. Kara said Mike did an incredible job mastering the intention behind the song. Simon said this was the first time he's taken Mike seriously in this competition. He called Mike's performance terrific and believable.
My favorites of the night were Andrew, Lee, and Crystal (with Casey and Mike following closely).
I think Tim, Didi, and Katie will be in the bottom three.
Tomorrow night Usher will perform, as well as Diddy and season two winner, Ruben Studdard.
