  • Jennifer Lopez said : That was beautiful. This was very well suited for your voice.
  • Randy Jackson said : I liked that it was a very relaxed side of you. It was still very safe. I don’t know how that’s going to help you.
  • Steven Tyler : When you find the right song, the voice appears. You sang a great Elton John song well.
