The judges were a little harsh with C.J. after his performance of "Whatever It Is." Jennifer said she "expected a tiny bit more." Harry added that it "wasn't your best performance" and urged C.J. to make better song choices. Keith said it perfectly with "I think you have more to offer than that, C.J." When given a chance to respond C.J. dedicated the song to a young girl who had recently passed away in his hometown.
