Chayce took on “Afterglow” by Ed Sheeran for his solo. Chayce performed “Drive” by Incubus with band frontman Brandon Boyd. Lionel said that Chayce has a “magical voice” but advised him to look at the judges and the audience more. Luke thinks Chayce is just super cool.
Colin performed an energetic rendition of “Locked Out Of Heaven” by Bruno Mars. Colin and Tori Kelly teamed up to sing her song “Hollow.” Katy said that Colin looks like he plays 300 tours a year. Luke likes how Colin just looks like he is having fun.
