Kendra Chantelle going for "Georgia on my Mind" to stay on "American Idol." I think it's a mistake, but we'll see. Mmmm, forgettable beginning, but oh, so sweeet on the chorus.
Part of it is the brilliance of the song, but she also goes big and lets it all spool out, with an interesting tone. Whoa, gets the audience on its feet. Nice, and a bit unexpected.
Randy Jackson said he didn't know where it was going, but she rocked it at the end.
Jovany Barreto is up next, doing "Angel," his old standby. Very sincere, and he goes big too, but it feels a bit formulaic. It's not the most consistent performance and I lose interest after a while.
He won't get picked to go on. Jennifer Lopez just says, "You did a good job baby, you did all you could do."
