Syesha Mercado chooses "Vanishing," which Mariah loves. She gives Syesha some pointers on making it her own for her performance. She sings a lot of runs and big notes, most of which works, but she loses it for a bit in the middle, one of the quieter bits. But people probably won't remember that part since that was before the big notes. Randy says he was worried that she took on (yet another) big, challenging song, but that overall she did a good job with it, "all things considered." Paula says this choice was extremely smart because not many people know it as well, so she won't be compared to her as much. Simon says again, technically, "it was very good indeed, but I'm not sure at this point in the competition I would choose a song not many people know."
