Syesha Disappoints While Brooke Soars

Syesha Mercado, “Me and Mr(s). Jones”: 15
I really thought this was a bad song choice for her. I think she would’ve been better suited for Donna Summer or some other disco number (as much as I hate disco). She was way too tentative on the verses. And that package with her baby cry introducing her slow ballad didn’t do her any favors.

Brooke White, “You’re So Vain”: 19
Talk about perfect song choice. It was also shrewd of her to go one verse with the guitar and one verse without. I took one point off for her issues with the lower notes.
