The next group is pretty blonde-heavy, composed of Dani Knights (don't know her), teenage country singer Skyelor Anderson, 59-year-old Dorian Gray imitator Leroy Bell, Chelsea Musick (oh, just give it to her now, for God's sake, with that name), Ben Rue (I may or may not remember him), Paige Ogle and Cari Fletcher. Steve reminds us that Cari got "mixed reviews," which is a polite way of saying Simon thought she was cute but boring. We're about to see how they do on "Desperado," a song that is older than the median age of this group. Dani interviews that she wants to be a country star with her God-given talent, so we'll see how that works out. They all pose together on risers and keep getting interviewed in clips through the first part of the song, and we pick up on Paige Ogle singing. Leroy's voice sounds great other than a few pitch issues, and then Dani gets up and walks away with the song, almost literally. There's a weird edit, and then Cari and Skyelor each sing a few lines like today was the first time they heard it, which it probably was. Once they're offstage, most of the judges liked Dani the most, but Simon's favorite was Paige. Her last name's Ogle, how can she not be? It's like an invitation right there. There were also singers in that group they didn't like, but we're not getting any names yet.
The next group only has one person we've ever seen before: Brian Bradley, the "Stop Looking at My Moms" kid, who's stuck with unknowns Tinuke Oyefule, Jennifay Joy Nichols, Lauren Ashley and Tatiana "Reina" Williams. Obviously he's happy they've been given a Jay-Z song, "Wishing on a Star," and we see him rapping for the vocal coach, while the ladies beatbox. The coach tells him to stay invested in the song even when he's not performing, which is good advice, although I'm not entirely surprised the kid needs it. Other people in the group are not rappers, and it shows. Also, there's a D-bag trio in this group Steve didn't even bother to mention. But Reina seems to be stepping up to the rapping. And indeed, when they perform and it starts to look like it's Brian's number; Reina totally upstages him by both singing and rapping in her dude-voice while he forgets words. Lauren Ashley, whoever she is, seems unable to stay on one note for the second chorus, and then Jennifay Joy Nichols treats the judges to the spectacle of a girl in a sundress and cowboy boots attempting to rap. Actually, that's probably the best outfit she could have worn for this; it's like shouting "I DON'T RAP" without actually having to say it. Once they're done, the judges don't seem entirely impressed, but they all agree that Brian's not ready for the big time yet.
