Last night made for a very interesting sudden death match for the boys and
Paul Jolly was the first up and he started the night off with a subtle bang. Taking the bold move of singing a
Next up, Johnny Keiser. Nicki's "love" interest that apparently never gave Nicki a straight answer to her "do you have a girlfriend" question back during the auditions, so tonight she asks again and Johnny lets Nicky and America know that he's single. After a lot of flirting, the overall tone of the judges was that the performance overall was "just ok."
Now it's JDA. We love JDA! Singing and performing "Rumor Has It" JDA worked the stage in a full face of make up, a strappy black dress and stilettos! After JDA's performance, the judges gave him "at home in Vegas," "original," "work it girl!," and "award-winning performance."
To each, JDA responds "I'm representing for the gays!" He could so open up for Lady Ga Ga on a world tour and I'd be the first in line to buy tickets.
Kevin Harris AKA Butta, gave us a sultry rendition of
Devin took a huge risk, not only by singing
Calling the boys diverse would be an understatement. After Devin we got the opportunity to listen to the half-Chinese, half-Mexican pop star. Nicki wants to have his babies. Elijah, watching and listening to his performance you could simply picture his music videos and teenage girls screaming during concerts, certain that Elijah is a sure thing for the next round.

Keith Urban said it best tonight: "If

Curtis Fitz Jr. Our church boy brought it again. This time a

Curtis is up first and gets told "you know damned well you're through!" (That would be a yes.)
JDA. No. I scream in total shock! No? No, Ericka ... JDA is a no.
With split votes, Jimmy Iovine is needed for the tie breaker that will seal Paul's fate.
Admitting that he too felt that Paul over sang his song, but because he recognized that there is a fact a great voice in there. Paul gets a yes.
Charlie. Of course he's a YES!
Johnny and Devin are our final two boys; one stays, one goes. Devin stays and Johnny goes.
And there we have our five survivors of sudden death. Looking ahead to next week, seems the best were saved for last and we're in for a great two nights of more sudden death rounds.
