Time for Danny Gokey, who goes throug his pre-performance interview without mentioning his dead wife.
He sings "PYT," and at first I'm worried he's going to make a ballad version of it. Not true. After the first couple notes, he pumps things up. Believe it or not, this is the most I've liked Danny this season. He escapes inspiration mode, and brings lots of range and high energy to the stage. He kind of sounds like Michael Bolton at points. The performance verges on shouty at times, and the dance moves are a little shaky, but it's still really nice.
Never miss a local story.
Paula: "I think you're on your way to the finals."

Randy: "I loved it all."
Kara: "You have joy when you step on that stage."
