"Aw Naw" baby, such a terrible song choice and at the start of the song... he was flat. He seems like he was chanting more than singing? Such a waste to a great voice!

Two performances so far and this show makes The Voice looks like a true great singing competition and this... a karaoke singoff.

WHY, OH WHY. I feel like running away after hearing this performance. These contestants need to know how to pick the right songs!

This is, obviously not Malaya.

I was gonna be skeptical about this song choice... In the end, I did think she pulled it off but it was not the greatest song choice. Why did she pick this song out of so many available Kelly Clarkson song choices? She couldn't hit 2 high notes and other than that, her tone still rings well in my ears.

Will she win? No.

Will she be eliminated tomorrow? Maybe.

He was on tune through out and he did sing his heart out. But I just didn't like the song choice. You can't just stand there with a guitar and sing such an upbeat song like this. :(

Did I like it? No.

Will he still be around tomorrow? Yes.

That's 3/3 guitar players for the guys so far.

At least he did seem like he's enjoying himself on the stage. He needs to pronounce his words better and tone down the band at the back. I did, am convince so far based on 5 performances, that this is the type of record he can make.

But I'm still not impressed.

Such a mild song choice that only picked up in the last 10 seconds? I think it was a wrong song choice, but nevertheless.. a really good tone, marketable and distinct voice.

She needs to work on her stage presence.

I think it was a mediocre performance and similar to the style of song she sang last week. She has a really good tone, and I am convinced this is her and the type of records she wants to make...

But such a wrong choice! Doesn't show her nice vocals at all.

She did pull off the song, but did they key of the song change too much to fit her range? I didn't like this version as compared to the original. Plus, she needs to control her breath and stop breathing into the mic.

I'm sold that this is him. I enjoyed the front part, then hated the middle arrangement... before he ended the song greatly.

He won't be going home tomorrow night.

I liked it. It was honest, it was sincere and she sang right on tune. I think this is her best performance of the season so far... and looking at things so far, this might well become the best performance of the night for me.

I think she has a strong fan base? Even though her performance was mediocre last week, she still managed to make it into the Top 5 girls.

It was a "lazy" and weird song choice. Did her voice fit the tune? Yes. Am I impressed? No.

She can't continue to be like this if she wants to win.

5/5 guitar guys so far. Awesome. WGWG all the way! #smellmysarcasm

That aside, it was a good song. He was on tune, but I am not impressed. Yet again. I can do without hearing this performance.

I honestly think I have a problem with his attitude.. but yet I look forward to his singing each week because he's the only guy in the whole group whom I reckon knows who he is and has a genuinely good voice.

I liked the performance and think that it is only fitting he closed the show tonight.

It's not surprising because honestly, she doesn't know which song choices to showcase her talent.
