"American Idol" - Top 8 Male Semifinalists - March 10, 2010
Ryan calls Kara Simon's binky. He doesn't understand what that means.
Contestant #1:Lee Dewyze
Song: "Fireflies," Owl City
Performance: I'm not sure this light pop song goes with his rock voice and intense face but then he smiles and it feels a little better. Weird.
Randy: Thinks it was a strange song choice and there were some pitch problems, but he thinks he made it work.
Ellen: She liked that made it rock a bit. She says friends of hers have crushes on him. And he's adorable.
Kara: She says he looked confident and that there's a star bubbling there. She thought he made it better by stripping away the production gloss. A solid job, not his best, but solid.
Simon: He says there's nothing to rave about, no moment, but he likes his progress. He thinks he's better than the version of the song that he just did.
He says he's absorbing the criticism and tried to do something a bit different with the song.
Contestant #2: Alex Lambert
