Overall Thoughts: I really like Kory, but compared to the other singers on the guy’s side I’m worried he will end up fodder. I will say though, of the contestants I feel like Kory is the one most likely to give us interesting song choices. I think his voice though is a little limited, which will stand out when he is compared to people like Jordan, Dalton and Adam. Regardless, I still am rooting for Kory. My advice is to try and find an angle where he can show some of his creativity and try really hard to separate his artistry from the other boys. The last thing Kory needs is to draw comparisons to one of the other guys. I would also suggest he pick a safe slow emotional song for top 24 week that he knows he can nail so that he could try and fly under the radar rather than go for a bigger number that could be a hit or miss.
