Do Rachel Crow a favor: ignore her outfit in the following video.
Heck, ignore the random dancers flitting about around her, as well as the fact that she appears glued to her raised spot on the stage. None of Simon Cowell's choices for this protege worked well last night.
But Crow still deserves her spot in the final 12 for her personality and her vocals, showing off clear potential with this mash-up of "Baby" by Justin Bieber and "Where Did Our Love Go" by The Supremes. Yes, Simon, she can pull off top 40 and retro, but couldn't you have found another way to prove that?
Which performance by a young finalist did you like best last night: Crow's, or this one by Brian "Astro" Bradley?
