All in all, it was a horrible night for Group 1. Here's a rundown of the LIVE performances...
1) Jackie Tohn sounded tone deaf! Her performance was like bad karaoke. From the vocals to the outfit, everything was wretched. Her performance in those leather pants, like Olivia Newton-John in Grease, was a bad choice. It made her look like a Sandra Dee wannabe. According to Simon, Jackie "played the clown," and she performed something silly, rather than good.
2) I'm officially in love with Ricky Braddy! He performed beautifully, like a true American Idol. There was a great tone to his voice as well. Ricky has not been featured in the show throughout the past three weeks, but Ricky Braddy is shining now!
3) Alexis Grace is another favorite! It's hard to sing Aretha Franklin, but this girl has soul! There were a couple spots that needed work, but I love her and her new look. This girl is movin' up in the competition!
4) Brent Keith is a country boy with a heart of gold. I love watching him! He could totally move forward with a career in country music. I think he could have chosen a better song to show more range as a vocalist. I know this guy has more soul than what he's showing. Simon was right when he said Brent's song/performance was "forgettable."
5) Stevie Wright... I don't know what happened to this girl! Nerves must have gotten the best of her because this was awful - which is surprising because she sounded great in her audition.

6) Anoop Desai - I'm still lovin' Anoop Dog! He has lots of soul. Paula said he has a "Brian McKnight feel" to him, and I completely agree.
7) Casey Carlson was awful! She tried to sing the Police! Not to mention, her cheesy facial expressions didn't help. I loved her outfit though, but this was another bad karaoke song!
8) Michael Sarver is the good ole boy! He sounded pretty good tonight. To me, he's on the same level as Brent Keith.
