Allison Iraheta went to Adam Lambert‘s hair stylist to get her hair done. Doing Cry Baby from Janis Joplin, Slash says she has a natural rock n’ roll mannerism and swagger, but she needs to get past “the fear part.” She did OK with the vocals, I guess, though there were some pitchy moments.

Randy says, “You can sing your face off…I did not love the choice for you…needed more melody…I didn’t love this.” Kara says, “I think that you transform when you go on stage. I see your personality in your performances.” Paula says, “You’re downright fearless…if they do a biopic on Janis you got the role.” Simon says, “I thought it was a terrific vocal. But I didn’t see much originality.”
