Easin' on down Tobacco Road

Syesha Mercado sang the hell out of John D. Loudermilk’s “Tobacco Road.”

“You’re one of the most talented girls in this competition,” Cowell said. “I thought it was terrific.”

The coveted last spot went to Carly Smithson. Smithson came clean on this being her second chance (she was previously signed and dropped from a record label).

She selected Johnny Mandel and Paul Francis Webster’s “The Shadow of Your Smile. ”

Best vocal of the best 24 right here, Jackson said.

I didnt get it. I didnt think it was fantastic,” Cowell said.

What’d you think?
