Joshua Ledet. How could he have trouble with Stevie Wonder? He didn't.

Elise Testone. Did a suprisingly good job after all the confusion.

Jermaine Jones. Who's going to knock him off his feet? Not bad for a giant. But it's hard to generate excitement with a voice that ponderous.

Erika Van Pelt. Well, her voice finally got out from her chest. And she sounded really good.

Colton Dixon. I can't believe he did that with his thin young rocker voice. But it really worked.

Shannon Magrane. That's way too much heavy lifting for one so young and lightweight. But a good try.

DeAndre Brackensick. Definitely the most Stevie-like. Moves really well too.

Skylar Laine. She needed Dolly as a mentor for the right way for a country girl to sing Whitney.

Heejun Han. That song requires tension on the long notes, which he cannot provide. So it was nice enough.

Hollie Cavanagh. Nice belting, but quite not enough sparkle.

Jeremy Rosado. Going for power was a big mistake. And he started way too high for him. Not good.

Jessica Sanchez. Finally, a girl who can actually sing Whitney.

Phillip Phillips. He's really smart. He knows that song is half instrumental, so he brought all kinds of musicians on stage with him, and you could actually hear them.

I'm surprised to not hear "Saving All My Love for You." Shannon should have chosen it.
