Just Sam/Francisco Martin - these two can do no wrong tbh...
 

Kimmy Gabriela/Makayla Phillips - prefer kimmy's ariana cover, feel like makayla was holding back

Dillon James/Louis Knight/Cyniah Elise/Grace Leer - they were safe, didn't move the dial in either direction imo

 

Sophia James/Julia Gargano - they would normally be a couple spots higher, but these two took a step back

 

Olivia Ximines - i thought she would fumble bc she's very performance driven but i don't think she did

Lauren Spencer-Smith/Jonny West/Nick Merico - did what they were supposed to do


DeWayne Crocker Jr./Franklin Boone/Aliana Jester - A for effort

Arthur Gunn/Faith Becnel/Jovin Webb - whatever they were trying to do did not translate well at all

I think you merged my second thread which was just to be ranking the Top 20 overall after the show. I created one for their performances and then individually, but noticed both were merged together.

I mean, I did? You didn't say anything about Hey There Delilah also not having Nick (which I just noticed), and he's one of my favourites. If I was going to intentionally leave anything blank, it would've been I Believe. 🙂 Also my name has two Ts. 😘

I was underwhlemed with the performances, pretty much all of them...having them perform at home just didn't have the same impact and I didn't think many of them were good at first listen...so I had to change my mind numerous times and listen to them again and again...

 

Francisco

Lauren

Samantha

Makayla

Jonny

Julia 

Grace

Sophia

Faith 

Dillon

Olivia

Kimmy

Arthur

Nick

Cyniah

Jovin

Dewayne

Aliana

Franklin

Louis

 

 

This is what I ended up with....

I'm thrown for a loop...some of my the people that I didn't think I like, I did actually like and some people I don't like, but I like today...

 

Rankings to come...

Same, same. I don't know if it was because I had such low expectations for him, but Nick really blew me away, and the same goes for Aliana.

 

Meanwhile, Jonny was nothing short of rancid tonight. Why is he going so far out of his lane on a night where half the contestants are getting cut?

I keep changing my mind on what I think is good and what's not...I liked Makayla, Francisco and Lauren and maybe a few others, but about 15 of these people I can't decide if I liked their performances or not...i think that the format didn't do them any favors though...it just didn't have the same impact in my opinion...it was just YouTube covers on a TV screen...just very underwhelming...

With a Little Help From My Friends - Casey Abrams, Kree Harrison, Wade Cota, Jovin Webb (Jovin was disappointing, Kree was OK, and Wade was Wade...)

Everybody Wants to Rule the World - Rayvon Owen, Dalton Rapattoni, Franklin Boone (Franklin was underrated and didn't care for the other two)

Run to You - Angela Peel, Jasmine Trias, Mara Justine, Aliana Jester (just liked her more than the other three)

Hey There Delilah - Ju’Not Joyner, Sam Woolf, Dalton Rapattoni, Nick Merico (too bad he was a bit of a douche post-idol)

Mamma Knows Best - Sarina-Joi Crowe, Stephany Negrete, Lauren Spencer-Smith (Loved Stephany, liked Lauren, but Sarina did their thang)

Warrior - Briana Oakley, Cyniah Elise (by default)

Teenage Dream - Nick Fradiani, Francisco Martin (sounded more appropriate from an 18 year old than a then 29 year old)

Human - Jessica Meuse, JAX, Julia Gargano (Julia was disappointing and JAX was JAX...)

Cry - Mandisa, Grace Leer (Grace was good, Mandisa was better)

I Believe - Diana DeGarmo, Fantasia, LaKisha Jones, Syesha Mercado, Joshua Ledet, Curtis Finch, Jr., Just Sam (Fantasia owns this song)

What a Wonderful World - George Huff, Anwar Robinson, Chris Daughtry, Jonny West (toss up between George and Anwar, but had to give it to the latter)

I'm not going to do the Who Sang It Best comparison, instead just ranking the Top 20:

 

1.  Lauren Spencer-Smith - “Mamma Knows Best” (Jessie J) -- I really should have voted for her instead of Olivia and Cyniah.  She was excellent and should make it to the Top 10.

2.  Kimmy Gabriela - “Leave Me Lonely” (Ariana Grande & Macy Gray) -- I also should have voted for her instead of Olivia and Cyniah, but I didn't realize she'd do as well as she did.  I'm glad she didn't do "All I Ask" as this suited her so well.  She improved her performance skills and I love the home set design.

3.  Just Sam - “I Believe” (Fantasia) -- she's still my favorite and this was good enough to get her to the Top 10, but I would not have advised her to choose a coronation single by Fantasia.  It's just begging for comparisons and more often than not, you're going to wind up on the losing end.

4.  Jonny West - “What a Wonderful World” (Louis Armstrong) -- I love this song and this performance was so enjoyable.

5.  Francisco Martin - “Teenage Dream” (Katy Perry / Darren Criss) -- quite enjoyable and the remote setting helped him deal with his nerves.

6.  Sophia James - “Burning” (Maggie Rogers) -- she's really come into her own ever since Hawaii.  This was really sassy.

7.  Julia Gargano - “Human” (Christina Perri) -- started off a bit slow but she picked up enough steam by the end to get her past Arthur!

8.  Arthur Gunn - “Lovin Machine” (Wynonie Harris) -- this wasn't really my cup of tea, but it was good enough and I liked the set design.

9.  Louis Knight - “If the World Was Ending” (JP Saxe & Julia Michaels) -- nice recovery from Hawaii.  Especially since I feel it was good enough to get him in the Top10.

10.  Franklin Boone - “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” (Tears for Fears) -- I thought this was his best performance but I'm not sure it was enough for him to move on.

11.  Dillon James - “Let It Be Me” (Ray LaMontagne) -- I put him behind Franklin mainly because I liked Franklin's performance more.

12.  Grace Leer - “Cry” (Faith Hill) -- she started off slow but improved by the end.  Alas, I think Dillon beat her in the end.

13.  Aliana Jester - “Run to You” (Whitney Houston) -- lovely performance but I have to dock points for taking on a Whitney Houston classic.

14.  Cyniah Elise - “Warrior” (Demi Lovato) -- better than Makayla and Olivia but not as good as Lauren, Kimmy or even Aliana.

15. Makayla Phillips - “Greedy” (Ariana Grande) -- fine enough performance but it just didn't really excite me.

16.  Faith Becnel - “River” (Bishop Briggs) -- her best performance to date but too little, too late.

17.  Jovin Webb - “With a Little Help From My Friends” (The Beatles / Joe Cocker) -- I love the background setting but the remote setting hurt his ability to deliver

18.  Olivia Ximines - “bad guy” (Billie Eilish) -- she performed it as well as she could but the remote setting really hurt her.  Pity, as she's my second favorite.

19.  DeWayne Crocker, Jr. - “I Got You (I Feel Good)” (James Brown) -- I enjoyed it but the judges were right that DeWayne was too smooth for this song.  Not good enough.

20.  Nick Merico - “Hey There Delilah” (Plain White Ts) -- pleasant enough and maybe his best vocal but nowhere near good enough to move on.
