Last up, it's Danny Gokey. Seriously. Did this guy really need the money spot? Producers have already pushed him so hard on us.
He goes for "Hero," bolstering his good-guy image. It's good vocal, very soulful. Probably my favorite male vocal of the night -- or at least tied for No. 1 with Anoop -- but I'm still not entirely sold on Danny.
His vocals are good, no doubt, but I haven't really seen him separate himself from the pack with anything other than an emotional back story.
Randy: "That was blazing hot."
Kara: "That was incredible."
Paula: "I have two words with a hyphen: sold-out arenas."
Simon: "It wasn't fantastic, it was good."
