Country Queen, the group that includes both a drill sergeant and a borderline drag queen, is finally up. They're doing "More Than Words," and the other country guy in the group, Lee Pritchard, is less than on top of the words. JDA (pronounced Jada), the one with the glitter, doesn't do much better. Joel Weyman manages to get through his part, but Trevor Blakney is a total train wreck, pacing back and forth while alternately warbling and huffing into the mic while the judges just wait for it all to be over. Mariah cuts Trevor and Lee, but JDA and Joel are still in it. Trevor takes it hard, going outside and weeping over the barricades about how he's never failed before in his life. Let's just hope the Army will take him back after this.
DKSK is made up of the four youngest guys in the competition. One of them is David Leathers, Jr., the last male to be eliminated from the Vegas round last year. I guess he's no longer billing himself as Mr. Steal Your Girlfriend after that. Also in this group is Kayden Stephenson, the kid with cystic fibrosis. They're doing "The Longest Time," complete with an ambitious key change. Alas, there are some lyrical issues, particularly with Kayden, which is a problem with a harmony song like this one. Kayden begs for a second chance, but David Leathers and Sanni M'Maurura, the kid with the parents from Africa, are going on. Don't feel bad about forgetting the lyrics, Kayden; your voice wasn't that great either. That kicks off a montage of ejections, including Griffin Peterson; Clifton Duffin, whose parents first got to hear him sing at his audition; and still Kayden, who promises to be back next year.
