9:51 — How do you end an epic opening show, full of so many emotional highs? How about a "trash-hauler" 70 days out of rehab for cocaine and meth addiction? Chris Rene goes with an original song, "Young Homie." He sounds like an inspirational Mike Posner, with maybe a better voice. L.A. is feeling it. "Honey, I'm trippin' on you," says Nicole. It's not easy to win over a crowd with an original song, but with an average melody and right backstory, Chris proves it's not impossible. Simon says to Chris that they're making a deal, that if he's pushed through, he will stay clean for himself and his son. Chris agrees and you want to believe Simon's words will keep this dude straight edge. Cue Coldplay's "Fix You" and let those tears run wild, folks.
