    good rendition but somehow the emotion kinda disappeared from the song.. his voice is good though... too bad he didn't sang the belt part...
    i think the song choice is ok... it's more of the arrangement that downgraded the song...

    I thought he sucked the life out of the song. People will be selling it back to Itunes, she may go negative on sales...

    I wanted this to be great. It could have and should have been great. And it was not great.
    His voice is perfect for the song, but there was no emotional connection to the lyrics. How can you sing this song without feeling the words??
    And his choice to go to the second verse instead of the final verse was a copout to me.
    And then to chop the verse in two anyway. It ended up not making any sense at all.

    Too bad, cause Devin was a favorite of mine. And honestly that performance put down into about 5th place for me.

    I thought he did a good job and I liked the arrangement. I missed the part of the chorus where Carrie takes it up an octave. For me the biggest problem with it was that because he had to cut it short the emotional connection was gone. The first two verses address earthly homes, it's not until you get to the last verse that you understand what she was really saying. He had to cut the last verse so we never got there.

    YEah, I really like him and his voice and his choice in song.
    It just didn't happen for him. To bad.
