Alex Preston sang, “Say Something” by A Great Big World this week for his America’s request song choice. The week each of the finalists chose two songs to perform from the many thousands of requests tweeted to them over the past few weeks. Did you see Alex’s song “Sweater Weather?” If you missed it we have the video, right here. The Top 5 will really have to bring their A game tonight to stay around for another week, we expect a higher level of performances as the contestant pool diminishes as we head towards the May finale. Did you watch tonight’s performance show? Just in case you missed tonight’s show we have you covered and you can read our full and detailed recap here!
On last week’s episode Alex sang “Always On My Mind” by Willie Nelson and Jennifer loved his rendition saying, “You know it is hard to go up there and hit the bullseye every single time. For me that was really beautiful. Right here was the perfect balance of Alex and a great beautiful song that everyone loves.”
On the next live results show airing Thursday, one contestant will be sent home. The show airs at a new time and a shorter show duration just 1/2 hour. There will be no judges save this week the only one of the season was already used.
