"There's so many things that happen to me when you're singing. You're awesome,” said Jennifer Lopez of CJ's performance. Harry told CJ to watch his intonation and said he had a tendency to sing sharp. Even though Harry gave CJ musical direction he praised the emotionality of his performance. "I felt like you were singing to me. I felt like you were going to shelter me.” Keith had a soft spot for the authentic Southerner, saying "I love where you're coming from. You're just a great Alabama boy." Ryan revealed that CJ had had a root canal the day before his performance! That's dedication.
