Josiah Siska – Ghost Riders by Johnny Cash
Josiah sings with an amazingly low baritone. So low, he makes Scotty McCreery seem like a tenor! Harry Connick Jr. couldn’t help pulling focus, jumping up to knee-slap along.
Alex Sasser – Count on Me by Bruno Mars
The husband and wife duo, Alex and Jordan Sasser auditioned for the judges together, bringing their adorable baby along in order to hypnotize the judges with her cuteness. Only Alex’s audition is featured in this clip. The singer accompanies herself on ukulele as she croons a Bruno Mars tune. You’ll have to wait until January for Jordan’s song!
Michelle Marie – Blue by LeAnn Rimes
Fifteen Year old Michelle Marie stuns the judges with her otherworldly talent. The best of this bunch. Watch it here.
