Robin says that the song makes him feel like going to the club, and he felt the connection when she looked in John's eyes. And then he talks about how he feels when he looks in John's eyes. Shut up, Robin. Jennifer thought it was sophisticated. Kelly loved their smooth tone. So where do they rank? She moved up to four, bumping Jason down to last place. I don't know if the judges got crazy and excited with the first singer, J Rome, or what, but he was not better than everyone we've seen so far, and yet he's still in first place.
Jennifer auditions one dude named John (too many Johns on this show) who sings a hymn and makes her cry, and he's from her hometown. I just realized that every time the pro asks the amateur to be on the show, they yell out, "Let's DU-ET!" That's cheesy.
John and Jennifer are singing "Stay." John also sounds a little like Vince Gill. I don't know why I think everyone sounds like Vince Gill tonight. Something about his tone. This guy needs a makeover, though. He looks like the guy that had a crush on Malcolm's mom on Malcolm in the Middle. He's got a great voice, though. I don't feel any chemistry between them, even though Jennifer is singing the hell out of this song.
Quddus notes that they seemed like the only two in the room. Kelly tells John that he sounds like an angel, and she's crying. John thinks his voice is crystal clear and blends with Jennifer's well. Robin thought it was great that he held his own with Jennifer. So where's the rank? He has moved into third place. I'm still mad that Olivia is so far down the board.
Robin decides that for his second partner, he wanted to choose a gospel singer. There's a really boring audition sequence and then he picks a lady named Alexis, who joins him on stage to sing "Magic." It's not my favorite song, but she's pretty good. Her voice is great, but she looks a little nervous. Robin sings over her a few times, which he should watch, if he wants her to advance. It seems like the pro should be spotlighting the best of the amateur, right?
Kelly says that she seemed happy up there and her voice was beautiful. John thought her voice was clear as a bell. Jennifer thought she was fantastic and got the crowd involved. It's a good sign when they talk about how good her voice was. She ends up in third place. I still don't think the first two were the best two, but whatever. I don't even know how eliminations happen.
