One week after letting the incredibly talented Sarina-Joie go, the American Idol judges used their save - on Quassim.
There's no denying Quassim has great stage presence. And frankly, it seems a crime that he was in the bottom next to Jax while Maddie got to awkwardly wave her arms around to "Let's Hear It for the Boys" in complete safety. But that doesn't change the fact that Quassim's performance of "Come Together" was terrible. He was so focused on his painfully literal choreography that at one point he missed his cue because he was too busy spinning around.
If the judges' decision to save Quassim so early in the competition is hurting your heart, clear you palate with a few of the night's better performances.
Quentin performed a dark, forceful rendition of Grease's "You're the One that I Want." Yeah, a few notes were off, but Quentin's self-assured stillness proved real stage presence isn't about jumping around or doing hokey choreography.
Clark Beckham also stole the show with his cover of Maroon 5's "Sunday Morning." Out of nowhere, Clark transformed into a sexy, soulful acoustic crooner that probably had the whole crowd falling in love with him.
Do you think the judges wasted their save?
