Next, Kris Allen opts for "To Make You Feel My Love" by Garth Brooks. Randy Travis praises his uniqueness.
Kris takes the stage sans guitar, and sits down to serve up a nice ballad. From the start, it's a good, controlled effort - and a nice departure from the over-singing that's defined so many of this season's singers. Kris does a nice job of making the song his own. This is a contemporary pop take on Garth Brooks that could easily woo teenage radio listeners. And L-Murda, of course.
Never miss a local story.
Paula: "I'm pleasantly surprised."
Simon: "I thought that was terrific."
Randy: "You went out on a limb and you took that chance just to showcase your vocals."
Kara: "It just was beautiful."
