 Here are the contestant performances in the order of appearance.

 1] Janice who plays the American Idol game everyday and wins.  NO

7] Derek Hilton – NO

I liked her because she sang with emotion and has a good voice.

 I liked his voice and he received a YES. (Randy voted no).

19] Katie Stevens comes from a large family and is close to her grandmother who has Alzheimer’s.  Katie is 16 years old.
When she started singing I immediately thought “Great voice!  WOW!”
Simon said, “Yes”.  Victories said, “I like you presence.”  Kara said, “For 16 years old you have “it”. That was amazing.”  Randy said, “Yes, you have a natural talent.”

20] Joshua Blaylock – YES
The judges all joked with Joshua about being to “nice” and needed to be more assertive, which he played along with.

21] Justin Williams who found out he had cancer and went through six months of “kimo”.  He is now cancer free and said that this would be a dream come true.
I thought Justin has a very good voice with great range and looks like a rock star.
Simon said, “Yes.”  Kara said, “You will be remembered.”  Victoria said, “Nice voice and presence.”  Randy said, “Liked it.”

22] Norberto G. – NO  (Forgot lyrics)

I like his voice.  Simon said, “Good, but boring. No.”  Victoria said, “Not boring. Yes.”  Kara said, “Not boring. Yes.”  Randy said, “Yes”
YES. (He made his dad proud).

24] Leah Laurniel — YES
This was a “wow” for me.  I agreed with Randy when he said, “That was best I heard today.”

I have nothing else to report except see you for tomorrow night’s show.
