Going into the break, they tell us that David Cook is next, but after the break there is some kind of a snag with a guitar, so Ryan talks to Michael Johns. Michael says his moment was being dressed as a kangaroo for a rugby match and getting beaten up in front of 20,000 people. On stage, he sings "Don't You (Forget About Me)." It's pretty good, but so far on the live show, I haven't seen anything quite as good as the footage of him from Hollywood week. Am I off on that? Randy says "the Aussie boy goes home for '80s week" and compares him to Michael Hutchence. Uhh, I believe that was a Simple Minds song, and per Wikipedia, that band is from Scotland. Paula says, "You are the kind of artist who is defining who you are. ... This season, you all are unique and different, and you are no different." Well, OK, then. Simon says he liked it but didn't love it. He tells Michael he has "huge talent, but you haven't quite connected with the right song. ... But I really, really like you, and I think you're going to do very well in this competition."
