This week’s episode was themed “Now and Then,” and contestants were asked to sing two songs: a Billboard chart-topper from 2000 up to the present, and a “classic soul” selection from earlier decades.
Sanchez sang Otis Redding’s Try A Little Tenderness
Randy Jackson: Where you should go is being connected with the lyric.
Jennifer Lopez: We got a little bit of your alterego. BB Chez. She came out a little bit here. Just the voice isn’t going to do it.
Steven Tyler: Bless my soul you’ve done it again. God knows you know you can sing. C’mon girl.
