Curtis, 24, took on R. Kelly‘s “I Believe I Can Fly” while Burnell, 19, sang “I’m Here” from The Color Purple.
The judges loved both of their performances. “I think it’s pretty obvious that you are one of a kind. You were born to do this” Nicki Minaj told Burnell. “That struggle and that pain in your voice is undeniable.”
Meanwhile, Curtis got a standing ovation from all four judges! “I feel like the competition for tonight started just now,” Randy Jackson said.
We can’t wait to see who makes it through to the next round!
