Jessica Sanchez sings the Mariah Carey hit My All and she sings it very gently especially in those hardest part to hit the higher notes. Judge Jennifer Lopez who selected the song for her said “I could tell in the middle of it that it was hard but you did it so beautifully”.

Nobody predicted that he can sing that kind of songs as it turns out a big transformation. Steven commented he can be the next Bruce Springsteen.

The second performance was the contestant's choice as Joshua Ledet sings John Lennon's Imagine. This time Joshua haven't use his style as he almost scream in very song he sings.

The song can be hard for a less talented singer but Jessica impressed the singer-composer of the song no other than Steven Tyler. Tyler was so pleased as he said,” You just took a great songs and made it greater”. Phillip Phillips sings Matchbox 20's Disease but the judges doesn't impress well. Jennifer Lopez said,” I didn't feel like it was the wow performance. I'm sorry baby”. The crowd booed after they hear the comment but Rnady Jackson agreed to Lopez.
