Siobhan Wows and Lacey Improves

Siobhan Magnus, “The House of the Rising Sun”: 20
Remember how I always say not to sing songs for someone in the early rounds? Well when you sing them that well, you can get away with it. How about that a cappella beginning? She got extra points just for that.

And no, she doesn’t listen to the judges. Maybe everyone else should follow her example...

For the record, I can see what Simon was saying about the song being dark, but when you do it that well, does it matter?

Lacey Brown, “The Story”: 18
That was a perfect choice and it was a good performance, but I think it will be a little forgettable.
