Tonight Savion is playing Train’s “Soul Sister.” Savior gets the audience rocking, afterward the judges praise Savion’s style. Jennifer warns him not to get too caught up with the audience, he needs to start looking in to the camera and “touching hearts at home” so that he can get votes. Keith Urban wasn’t a fan of Savion’s song choice, he doesn’t think that it displayed all of his talents.
Mark Andrew takes the American Idol stage next performing “The Weight” by The Band. Harry Connick Jr. praises Mark and says that he “is in the zone” much more than any of the remaining contestants.

Clark Beckham takes the American Idol stage next and performs a soulful rendition of “When A Man Loves A Woman.” Afterwards Jennifer raves over Clark’s performance and says that he gave her “gooseys all day.” Harry agrees that Clark is “talented to withstand some really good critiques that will accompany the praise he receives.” Keith Urban keeps it light and shots “Nashville Representing! That was killer!”
Rayvon Owen performs Nick Jonas’s song “Jealous” next for the American Idol judges. Harry Connick praises Rayvon and says that his performance was “likable and a great song choice.” Jennifer reminds Rayvon that he needs to work the cameras and not just the live audience, because it is the viewers at home that are going to be voting for him. Jennifer tells Rayvon that his song could have used a “little more attitude especially during that song.” Keith Urban praises Rayvon’s voice and his falsetto, but agrees with Jennifer that he could have used a “little more edge.”
American Idol’s youngest competitor, 15 year old Daniel Seavey, he sings Jason Mraz’s hit song “I’m Yours.” Keith raves that he loves the way Daniel looked, and it was “interesting hearing his voice tackles that song and the really high notes.” Jennifer reminds Daniel that he is “beyond adorable” but he needs to make sure the song matches that. Harry laughs that he feels sorry for America tonight because there is some serious talent performing on the American Idol stage tonight.
Riley Bria is up next, he performs “Homeboy” by Eric Church. Jennifer gushes that Riley is the “perfect combination of sweet and edge.” Harry says that he can’t help but notice that Riley reminds him so much of Keith, he is going to start calling him “Keith Suburban.” Keith praises Riley for choosing to do an Eric Church song and gushes that “it was really cool.”
New Orleans native Quentin Alexander takes the American Idol stage next and performs a rendition of “I Put A Spell On You.” Harry Connick Jr. says that he “really hopes America gives Quentin a chance to stay on board because there is a real artist in there.” Jennifer gushes that Quentin’s performance was on of his best yet.
