Chikezie of Inglewood, Calif., comes out next. He's apparently dropped his last name since Hollywood. He made it to Hollywood last season, but not to the finals, and feels like he stepped it up. He hits the stage in this pumpkin-colored suit and sings "More Today Than Yesterday." He starts out pretty shaky and weak, like it's too low for him, but he gets better when it gets higher. Randy says that since he's an old-fashioned singer, he needs to make songs his own, especially during theme weeks like this one. He deems it "a'ight." Paula says he's come a long way and says he's "a great throwback to R&B." Simon: "Here's my problem, Jacuzzi, Chikezie. ... The suit is hideous." Chekezie calls him out for only wearing black, gray and white. Simon goes on, "The wink was hideous, the woo was hideous. ... It was all old-fashioned, corny, cheesy, and to be honest with you, this could have been something we filmed 30 years ago, 40 years ago." Chikezie says he was trying to take a '60s song of one genre and take it into another genre. I don't think back-talking the judges, even Simon, is going to build much goodwill among the audience. But I could be wrong.
