Judges comments on tonight’s performance: Jennifer-“Part of enjoying the show is watching the transformation. I’m a little bit confused because you were so country last week and now you’re like, Elton John, I don’t know. It was a good vocal performance, but I’m not sure it suited who you are.” Harry – “The thing about Elton is when he did it he really pounded the piano, it kinda just felt like a walk through the song, it didn’t really have a purpose to me. I never really know if we have heard the real Ben, confused is the word that comes to mind like Jen said.” Keith-“Confused is the right word. What I’m struggling with is during the auditions you have an easy, effortless, believable sound to you. I’m just not sure who you are as an artist.”
On the next live results show tune in to find out who will be sent home. Plus, multi-talented musician, singer, songwriter and the newest judge on AMERICAN IDOL XIII, Harry Connick, Jr., will perform a medley, and singer/songwriter Mali Music also will perform his new single, “Beautiful.”
