7. Astro Last week: #9
He’s good at what he does, but who likes this kid?! I’m stumped.
6. Marcus Canty Last week: #5
He doesn’t have the vocal chops of Melanie, Josh, or Drew — and landed in the bottom three last week despite a terrifically maudlin Thanksgiving moment with his mom. The boy can sell it.
5. Chris Rene Last week: #6
Mentor/coach L.A. Reid sang along to Chris’ original song! Well, a few words of it anyway. One and a half for sure.
4. Rachel Crow Last week: #4
I think this 13-year-old angel from heaven (according to Paula) is wildly hit or miss, but her boundless energy will serve her well with this week’s Michael Jackson theme.
3. Drew Last week: #2
Ha! Drew on Michael Jackson week. I can’t wait. I’m guessing she’ll keep it slow. This 15-year-old’s arch-nemesis L.A. Reid is gonna freak out!
2. Melanie Amaro Last week: #3
Last week Melanie busted out more personality than we’d ever expected from her, along with her Virgin Islands accent. She’s always been terrific; now we know she’s definitely not meek or boring.
1. Josh Krajcik Last week: #1
Josh killed it on ”Wild Horses” last week, and the spotlight on his relationship with his daughter Rowan should work tremendously in his favor. No human or beast could drag this papa bear away!
