Judges Comments: Steven: he has nothing much to say. You love music and music loves you. J-Lo: lots of praise for Skylar’s enthusiasm from J-Lo – “It’s like you attack every single song,” Randy: he says CCR should be proud… is he nuts, does he think the great CCR cares about this talent show? When Randy and Skylar are footnotes CCR will still be an important entry.
