Harry praised Emmanuel's happy, infectious energy, but thought the performance got "out of control." Keith echoed Harry's sentiments, but Jennifer took a different line saying, "Emmanuel, I Z'adore you, I do." She went on to say that she thought it wasn't the best song choice for him. With a little prodding from Ryan, Emmanuel confessed that he chose the song to pay homage to one of his favorite all time Idols, Vonzell Solomon, who performed the hit to much acclaim during Season 4.

Harry Connick Jr. announced that "big entertainer" Emmmanuel Zidor was the next guy getting a chance to sing for a spot in the finals. Emmanuel had a strict plan when he hit the Terranea Resort for Randy's workshop, but not everything went smoothly. Emmanuel had vocal and staging issues while rehearsing, but he pulled through in his performance. Emmanuel shook and danced his body around that stage like a pro during his rendition of "Best Of My Love" by The Emotions.

Emmanuel Zidor held nothing back during his performance of "I'm Goin' Down." Harry immitated Emmanuel's sound effect and wants to see Emmanuel and Jennifer have a walk-off. Jennifer agreed and even agreed to buying Emmanuel's heels. His solo was so good, but would it be enough? He walked in timidly and started crying before the verdict. He explained why he was crying, but his answer was so high pitched we're not quite sure what he said. But it's good news - Jennifer is bringing Emmanuel some shoes for his Top 30 debut!

Emmanuel Zidor, Terrica Curry, and Carmen Delgina took on Destiny's Child's "Say My Name." We love that song, but Harry said that song didn't have a melody and didn't showcase their voices. The judges had trouble judging them off that performance, but Harry said Emmanuel is closest to having the whole package, so he's through, but his group members are not.

MK Nobilette and Emmanuel Zidor split from their group and joined Terrica Curry and Carmen Delgina, but MK and Terrica each disappeared, leaving Emmanuel to roll and cross his eyes while wondering if two people could be a group.

Emmanuel Zidor is an airlines ramp agent in Atlanta, Georgia. Wait, why did he audition in San Francisco instead of Florida? Perks of working for an airline, perhaps. Although Emmanuel would make a great singing flight attendant, he soared through to the group round.
