Is Danny Noriega the worst?

Vote for the’s poster boy this season, Danny Noriega, took on The Carpenter’s “Superstar.” He did a decent job. Cowell thought it was better than last week, but not fantastic. Jackson thought he was over-concentrating.

David Hernandez left no stone unturned with Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong’s “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone.” Hernandez added a bit more flourish than I’d like, but the judges liked it. “This was the David Hernandez we fell in love with, ” Jackson said. Cowell felt it was the best vocal of the night up until this point.

Jason Yeager abandoned the cabaret theatrics from last week and put in a decent peformance of The Doobie Brothers Long Train Runnin. Cowell felt he looked like he was a drunk at a party.
