The Top 5 contestants were to sing two rounds of Neil Diamond songs. Halfway through the show after each contestant sang the first of two songs, Ryan asked the judges some feedback before moving on to the second round.
And lola Paula summed up Jason Castro’s performance of “Forever in Blue Jeans” this way:
“I loved hearing your lower register. But in the second song, I felt like your usual charm was missing for me. It kind of left me a little empty. The two songs made me feel like you’re not fighting hard enough to get into the top four.”
Randy Jackson broke the news to his fellow judge: “He’s just done the first song.”
“Oh my God, I thought you sang twice!” she said.
The quick-witted Ryan Seacrest replied, “You’re seeing the future, baby.”
