C.J. chose to perform "If It Hadn't Been For Love" by The SteelDrivers. C.J.'s soulful voice took center stage during his performance, but what would the judges say? Keith thought the song was a "clever choice," but wanted to make sure C.J. doesn't confuse "the sound of expression with the feeling of expression." Jennifer thought the performance started well, but got off in the middle. Harry echoed Keith's advice, but also added that C.J. really needs to work on his pitch.
