Alexa, Riker Lynch, Ni/Co and Jordan Smith are all in the next round, along with Allen Stone.
Puerto Rico: Christian Pagan with Loko–He did a great job and once again gave a ton of Ricky Martin vibes. It was a fun, exciting performance and I will definitely be adding this song to my workout playlist.
North Carolina: Jason Morgan with Right in the Middle–This song is making me cry so much tonight. I don’t know if it is because I am having a crappy day or what, but it is hitting me right in the feels.
Kansas: Broderick Jones with Tell Me--WOW. He reminds me of a baby Usher with his voice and personality. I absolutely adore him and smiled throughout his entire performance.
New York: Enisa with Green Light--I love the energy she brings into each and every performance. She just has something that makes her stand out and I am glad she has another chance to show it off to America!
