01 Danny Gokey sang "Dance Little Sister" made famous by Teerence Trent D'Arby (Paula's choice)-- I liked the song in the respect that it allowed Danny to stay in that comfortable part of his voice. However, I didn't really like the song itself.
02 Kris Allen sang "Apologize" made famous by OneRepublic (Randy and Kara's choice)-- I love that song, and more importantly I love that song on Kris. His vocals were so strong throughout this performance. I agree with what Simon said, Kara cannot criticize Kris for singing a song that she chose for him to sing. If she wanted him to do the song on guitar she should have told him that.
03 Adam Lambert sang "One" made famous by U2 (Simon's choice)-- I love this song, just like Simon, it is one of my faves, but Adam totally butchered it.
01 Danny sang "You Are So Beautiful" made famous by Joe Cocker-- I love the arrangement and I think Danny did an awesome job. His voice was just beautiful and I love that he infused a gospel style into the song. Simon called the vocals, a "vocal masterclass".
02 Kris sang "Heartless" made famous by Kanye West-- Kris isn't just bold like Kara said, but he is so so clever. And I agree with Randy, I did like his version better than Kanye's; this was hot and what Kris basically did was put himself back in the running for the finals. Although, I was not one of the people that thought he ever went away.
03 Adam sang "Cryin" made famous by Aerosmith-- Steven Tyler rules and I am predicting Danny and Kris for the finals!
