I pray that America truly understands how challenging and tough it is to do and play the guitar like you just played it. It is.
It’s just in your voice man. This is the best you have sang in this competition. Your first performance and right down was amazing.
I want you to understand something. Singing all the folk songs is great and you’ve done a great job in making that connection. But watching you sing your songs is everything. Because it’s instant identity, man.
I know when the first two notes of everything, it’s you. And your story, if i may say so, your story has already gone to the top. As far as I’m concerned, you’ve got a career for a very long time
First of all, that was the best you have ever sang on this show.
Second of all, how wonderfully interesting will it be when you change American Idol by winning American Idol.
