Paul McDonald, “Maggie May”: 18
I’m not sure there’s ever been a male contestant with as unique of a voice as Paul. And this song was a perfect choice to show it off. And don’t you love how he kicked off his performance by saying, “What’s up TV land?”
Jacob Lusk, “A House Is Not a Home”: 18
I’m not sure there’s ever been a male contestant as dramatic as Jacob. I thought he waited a little too long to haul out the high notes, but it was still pretty good.
