The next contestant who is safe is Alyson Gilbert. Get out! Old Crazy Eyes made it through after all. In the mentoring video segment, John Rich doesn't think that Alyson understand the artistry of being a singer. You know, like the subtlety of delivering a lyric such as, "I'm a thoroughbred, that's what she said, in the back of my truck bed." Alyson wants to break out of the pageant mold, and John Rich thinks the way to do this is by giving her a song with no range. That song is "Every Breath You Take." Vocally she actually sounds pretty good, and she closes her eyes a lot, which helps. The chord ends on a spooky minor chord, like she's singing about having an asthma attack on Halloween. She gives a big smile when it's over, because she knows she done good. Jeffrey Steele says he's seen two different people on two different weeks. Jewel thinks it's much improved from last week, and tells her to take some cues from Reba McEntire's stage presence. And speaking of Reba, there's really not a wrong time to link to this video, is there? Reba will blow a bitch up. John Rich commends Alyson on a great job.
