Yo, Clay Aiken, Baby, you know what, man? I gotta say somethin
to you here. You know what? That song... I love that song...
I hated this arrangement of it, but it just proves how great
of a singer you are, 'cause you made it work, dude, with that
arrangement, dude, you sang that, dawg, you sang it, very good!
Paula: Clay, I think, without a doubt, this performance, that
song, is the best performance of the entire competition that
I even know of. Unbelievable. UNbelievable!
Thank you, Paula.
Simon: Well, I wouldn't go quite that far... I mean it is the
best song of all time... I thought it was a little bit over
the top, but I have a suggestion based on *what I've said before*,
all three of you being great, why don't we vote off Ryan Seacrest
Randy: Brilliant idea, hey!
Ryan: I don't want to be voted off...
Simon: And then everyone's happy! Very good.
Randy: Ryan wants to be on the Tonight Show.
Simon: Very good, well done.
Simon said before after Kimberley's performance: Do you know
what's weird... I've been involved in a lot of these competitions...
this is the only time ever we've actually had three good people
in the top 3 which wasn't the case last year. So I don't know
which of you three will make it to the final... because I can
honestly say all three of you deserve to make it.
