Ryan's voice-over guides us through last night's performances. Randy's "song choice" memo was obviously the theme of the night. It's stupidly couched as Randy being unexpectedly harsh when it was actually the most sense I've heard him make in several weeks. Simon also gets painted as the meanie, as his slap-downs of Kellie, Lisa, and Bucky are grouped together. Lisa (vocally) and Taylor (sartorially) took on Kelly and Clay and were defeated soundly. Interestingly, the "good performances" are shown to be Katharine and Elliott, but not Paris. Bucky and Chris "stuck to their roots," and Ryan tells us the results were mixed, though from Simon's perspective neither were all that good. Paris is painted as the mixed review girl, which is too bad because she really needed to give a great performance this week to stay out of the bottom three and she did. I just wish she'd have gotten more credit from Simon for it.
