Spahr said, "I didn't like it because it was a bit squeaky. I think that the voters could be getting a bit tired of his cliché, emotional songs that actually lack emotion."

Mansfield said that the judges were dead on with their critique of Kelly.

"He fell into one of the traps of this week," Mansfield said. "He sang a song that he grew up with and went back to the same old, same old for him. He didn't bring anything except being a good singer to a song that really requires more."

Even a casual fan of "American Idol" knows that contestants should shy away from divas like Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. Well, Magnus choose to do both this week by singing "When You Believe," a duet with both artists.

Kara responded to the performance by saying, "After that song, I want to hang-out with you more than buy your record."

Mansfield said, "In a few weeks, we will look back at this week and last week as the moment that she lost all fans except her hard-core support. This was the week that she absolutely killed any chance that she had to win."

Spahr said Magnus needs to understand what parts of her voice sound good.

"She tries to go back and forth and do a lot with the song," Spahr said. "When she sings high it is very beautiful. She tries to sing low and she tries to scream and sometimes the judges love it and sometimes they hate it."

Llerena loves when Magnus screams.

The Female Adam Lambert?

"She is like the female Adam Lambert," Llerena said. "I didn't like what she did tonight because I was hoping for a scream. I think the scream is the best part of her voice."

Mansfield said that Magnus will be safe, while Spahr had Magnus in the bottom three.



Michael Lynche

Simon called Lynche's performance of "Hero" by Chad Kroeger and Josey Scott "artificial."

"This is supposed to be about inspirational songs and that song was written about Spiderman, wasn't it?"

Spahr said the performance was good.

"He has the opposite problem of Casey James," Spahr said. "He has so much stage presence that he forgets how to sing a technically good song. Sometimes, he even forgets how to sing into the microphone."

Mansfield said, "He is in real trouble. I thought he did pretty well, but he is just not connecting with enough people."

Spahr said Lynche will be safe but Mansfield said that not only will Lynche be in the bottom three, he will be going home this week.
