2. Casey James Hold On, Im Coming by Sam & Dave For the first time I believe in all of Caseys performances, there was more of his voice than him playing the guitar. While I am normally not a fan of his, I enjoyed his performance this week. But as my step mom said continuously, He is eye candy! Well duh. That is the only reason he is on the show. Caseys future is as one heck of a lead guitarist, but not as a bland wannabe rockstar. Wait, does Nickleback need a singer? It was one of Caseys better performances, but to me it was like the Detroit Lions having a good season. Sure it does not happen every often and it was nice. But how good is having a 9-7 performance only once in a while? That is what Caseys performance was to me. The 2000 Detroit Lions, about time something decent materialized. Back to mediocrity next week though.
Taking a cue from the judges’ advice to push himself, Casey has chosen Huey Lewis & the News’ The Power of Love. Meeting Miley, Casey contributes the funniest moment of the night: “I’m a big fan. Of … your dad’s.” CAPTIONBy Michael Becker/FOX The Power of Love is absolutely a non-intuitive choice, but it’s absolutely the right choice for Casey. Huey Lewis, it turns out, is the perfect reference point for Casey’s sweet but slightly rough voice and smiling stage presence. He’s got great guitar tone — the mix is much better than last week — and he gets good lighting. Strong all the way around. Randy, however, wasn’t a fan of the song choice but says Casey did it well. Ellen parrots Randy but adds that it was the best vocal of the night. Kara gushes. “It just gets better and better and better.” Simon says it’s not personal, but he doesn’t know what Kara’s hearing, saying the song was old-fashioned 25 years ago. “It was like watching and listening to an ’80s cover band. … Maybe it’s just me. I’m English.” For clarification, Ryan asks if he deserves to advance. “Yes! Yes!” Randy replies. Video Rating: 4 / 5

Up second: Didi Benami (Play With Fire) This is one of my favorite Didi performances to date. She brought interesting nuances to this classic. Randy: You on fire tonight. Ellen: You lost your way but got your way back you made the word fire two syllables, which was great! Kara: What I liked was an intensity you attacked the songs with. You got dark. Theres something very compelling with the sweetness of your voice and the eeriness of the song. Simon: Very cool choice of song. I thought youd lose it 30 seconds in. Thats what nerve does on this big stage. But Ive been a fan of yours the last two or three weeks. A very solid, not brilliant performance. Video Rating: 0 / 5

Aaron Kelly I Dont Want To Miss A Thing: Not sure if Aaron was actually good or just a welcome change from the complete trainwrecks that proceeded him, but finally! No more gagging! His performance wasnt perfect — Aaron was fighting laryngitis and tonsillitis — but his slight country twist to Aerosmiths monster love ballad showed that he knows who he wants to be musically. All of the judges complimented the vocals, but Simon felt Aaron was making himself old fashioned. Should we even bother talking about Ryan saying to vote for David Archuleta here? I didnt think so OK, just one second. The gagging was back. Suck it, Ryan! Moving on! Video Rating: 4 / 5
