8 Perform – Scotty
| Intro | Paul | Lauren | Stefano | Casey | Haley | Jacob | James |
My first comment is that whomsoever decided to populate the stage and consequently your rendition with all that extraneous commotion and vocal pollution doesn't get the point of this competition. Not only was that a tremendous song choice for you, but Randy and I finally agree, Scott, you are a truly rare talent. I cannot say you've got pop star talent, but you've got more stage presence than our previous country idol winners added together, with all due respect to Carrie Underwood and Taylor Hicks. You're a little like a time warp, but you are brilliant.
What if Ryan asked Simon, "Can anybody beat Scotty?"
That's a stupid question, Ryan, come on. Of course, someone can beat him. Anyone still in the competition can beat him if they do the right things. If the panel of judges would give the others something to work with to grow. Scotty is great. He's a baby Andy Williams or George Straight all in one package. But, is he vulnerable, sure, he could trip up next week trying to do what everyone tells him and that's break out and do something off the cuff. It could hurt him to deviate too much from his comfort zone.
