Blake says it’s the perfect song for this moment and for Gyth who’s an all-American type of guy. Very patriotic, he gives a shout out to all the military. Gyth gives a shout out to his Dad. Blake says it’s going to be a big moment. He’s wearing a white jacket and has a flag scarf wrapped around the mic, no guitar tonight. He’s going for the full patriotic, God/Jesus song vote. There are some acoustic guitars and a piano but no other music.
The girls are screaming as he gets to the chorus. This is one of my favorite songs, but I don’t like Gyth so that makes this hard. He’s doing a respectable job, the twang is a little much for me. Not as strong as we’ve heard from him before but probably enough to get tons of votes from the demo though. Oh bring on white-clothed gospel choir.
Blake on his feet audience cheering. Kelly says you can’t critique the song, it was not her favorite vocal from him. Loves the song choice. John says good song choice on the day of the British invasion, he agrees it wasn’t his greatest but he loved the power and emotion. Blake refutes the others and says it was far and away his best vocal performance, welcome to the finale. (Yep, and he didn’t need to sing that song).
