On tonight’s show it is British Week and the remaining 5 contestants will sing two songs one from British origins and another from the 60s. Tonight there will also be group performances, one duet and one trio.
Hollie says she chose “River Deep, Mountain High” because people want her to come out of her shell more. I was surprised the song was actually pretty good!
Judges Comments: Randy gives Hollie a standing ovation. Steven Tyler loved seeing Hollie sing the blues. The first time I really heard you step out. He thanks the Lord. Jennifer Lopez thought it was a different type of Hollie and she could really feel the energy. Randy loved it too. “You’ve gotta do it like there’s nobody watching,” Randy says. He tells her to be less self- conscious.
