L.A. Reid – He enjoyed it and everyone in the room did, as well. Simon is a hater

1432 (Formerly LYLAS) – Taylor Swift – “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”

L.A. Reid – It was a very karaoke song choice. Horrible production and their mentor really failed them, but there is hope
Britney Spears – She was pleasantly surprised

L.A. Reid – Congratulations, that was very entertaining. He didn’t get goosebumps, but it was adequate
Britney Spears – She feels like he’s a star and she was entertained

L.A. Reid – He loves her voice…he finds it difficult to be critical, but he didn’t feel like she was having fun

Simon Cowell – His issue was that she felt uncomfortable with the song. She didn’t connect with the song and based on how brilliant she is, she could’ve done a much better song. It would be criminal for her to leave the competition

L.A. Reid – Simon got it right this time. They just saw America’s next pop sensation
