Aaron Kelly is 'like a cupcake' on 'American Idol'

Aaron Kelly's "Ain't No Sunshine" has Usher calling it "Incredible." Usher works with him on making the words personal to the audience. Says he has a shot "at winning even, if he plays his cards right."

Husky start, sincere. We've had some great performances tonight, so Aaron is paling a bit by comparison, but still pretty good. Just not as dominant as some of the others, not the same urgency.

One odd side note: as the season goes on I think he's looking more and more like 'Chicken Little," Kevin Covais.

Randy says not bad, "just alright." Ellen pretends he's 11, and then just says good job. Kara says she liked it, Simon says in comparison to some of the others, "like a cupcake."
