Casey James, who's tight with his mom and his singing family, is singing "It's All Over Now." Up there with his guitar, wearing burgundy shirt and jeans, his voice isn't sounding great. And odd, not really rocking on this,it's a bit restrained. It's an OK performance, butforgetting it already.

Randy says this is who you are, loved it. Ellen says most women's hearts are racing just looking at you, but "for people like me... blondes... I thought it was fantastic." Kara says tonight, you're a rock star, likes the blues and soul aspect of it. She says it's the best performance they've seen from him.

Simon says it was like an audtion performance, and that he's not using the stage, not doing something incredible, and he needs to push himself.
