Here's blind Scott MacIntyre, who takes the stage sans piano to sing "Mandolin Rain."
It's an odd song choice, one I think judges would normally criticize. It'll be interesting to see if they hold back at all. It's a nice performance of a ballad, and even though it borders the boring range at times, Scott has a nice tone to his voice. He doesn't go for any power notes, but the vocal control is nice -- even if he doesn't boast a ton of range.
Never miss a local story.
Randy: "The parts that were great were really, really great for me."
Kara: "You move mountains when you step on that stage."
Paula; "I am just so happy and proud that you've made it."
Simon: "I wasn't crazy about the song...but I have to say, Scott, you're growing on me. You really are."
I love how Scott requests Seacrest's token high five. Ah, memories.
