Lesbiosaurus Beach Short
MURPHY & LIZZY O’VERY | I didn’t think I could love Murphy any more… until he joined Lizzy in being barefoot for their appropriately dreamy performance of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams.” I’m a big fan of Lizzy’s gorgeous, ethereal sound, and I’m a big fan of Murphy in general. As I watched him jump for joy upon hearing that both he and Lizzy were continuing, I appreciated how many sides of Murphy we’ve already been fortunate enough to experience — and I can’t wait to see more.

CASSANDRA COLEMAN & WYATT PIKE | Like two professionals, these two took the stage in perfect balance and absolutely crushed Alex Clare’s “Too Close.” There was a timelessness to their combined sound that made me want to fire up Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’ Raising Sand. The success was both in her conquering her fear, and him supporting her as a duet partner, and they both made it through to the next round. Watch:
MONICA LEAH & MIGUELA | There’s a reason we haven’t heard much from these two, who proved that just because you can hit a crazy high note… it doesn’t mean that you should. “It was a classic example of what you don’t want to do,” Richie said, explaining that their performance was more of a duel than a duet. Sadly, both women were cut.
RONDA FELTON & FUNKE LAGOKE | The twists and turns in this performance, my goodness! First, Ronda received a visit from her inner saboteur, to quote the great RuPaul. She admitted to feeling like she didn’t deserve to be there, which Funke countered with words of inspiration and encouragement that really spoke to Ronda. Unfortunately, their performance of Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion’s “Tell Him” was a train wreck of poor timing, missed lyrics and bundled nerves. And while they were receiving their critiques, poor Funke fainted on stage, busted her chin and was taken to the hospital on a stretcher. (Click here to watch the frightening ordeal.) While Ronda sobbed in the audience, the judges informed her that both she and Funke made it through, despite the issues with their duet.
WILLIE SPENCE & KYA MONEE | Willie admitted to being under “a lot of pressure” taking the stage after a crisis, but we needed some good music to lift out spirits after Funke’s frightening ordeal — and these two delivered. Willie killed it from the jump, harnessing so much emotion and power in his voice. As the pair’s harmonies soared, the judges rose to their feet, with Perry full-on sobbing by the end of the incredible performance. “That was divine,” Richie told Willie and Kya, before sending them both through. “That was an experience. You fractured us.” Watch:
BEN DODSON & HENRY THOMPSON | Our time with these guys was short, but between their matching haircuts and solid performance of Shawn Mendes’ “Mercy,” they gave us (and the judges) very little to dislike. I’m curious to see more of them down the line.
