This this week’s Can You Duet had the judges putting together duos out of single contestants. The ones who survived, were the duos who managed to not only put together decent performances on a dime, but were able to muster up some chemistry, despite being strangers.
Former American Idol Season 7 contestant, Brandon Green survives on to the next round, in no small part to his incredibly talented partner, 18 year old Jonathan Cox. Their cover of the Dixie Chicks “Long Time Gone” was a highlight of the night. Another duo to watch out for are Ryan Larkins and Avalon Peacock, who performed a lovely “Tennessee Waltz”. They paired up early on, and the judges were so impressed, they decided to keep them together.
The other duo who advanced, Keeira Lynn Ford and Matt Boggs, ripped though Ray Charles “What I Say” and may be this group’s version of Soul/Country.
Next week, the three duos who advanced from last week, and this week’s survivors become the Top 6, and will be mentored by judge Big Kenny. At the end of the episode, a duo will be eliminated.
