On tonight’s episode Jax sang “Empire State of Mind” by Alicia Keys and Jay Z and this is what the judges said about his rendition: Jennifer comments first, “I feel like you really mean business now, you’re like I need to be looked at as a serious artist. Was this the best song? I don’t know, I wasn’t feeling it as much. But, I do see Jax that you really have potential to take the whole thing. You really need to be careful with the songs that you choose from now on.” Harry adds, “I really dug out, you have a really unique tone to your voice. Is your voice hoarse tonight? Know what I loved about that? You just sang through it and nobody cared and you killed it and it was great.” Keith closes with, “I loved the song for you and your voice was in a beautiful register when you sat at the piano. Even when you aren’t feeling 100% like tonight you still powered through. I thought it was really great Jax.”
