Paul Jolley sang a Keith Urban song. Very brave
considering Urban is a judge this year. Urban thanked Paul for singing
his song and told him he had a great voice with great range, but also
told him not to over compensate. That was the only criticism repeated by
the judges. It ended up being a split decision, which means idol
executive producer Jimmy Lovine had to step in and make the call. He
decided to advance Paul into the next phase of competition.
Smith also sang a Keith Urban song for the judges tonight. The only
real negative thing they had to say was that it was boring. Jimmy did
not advance on in the competition.
Another contestant that did
not advance, JDA. He gave what they called the most entertaining
performance of the night. They said he would fit right in for a Vegas
show, which is where they are taping this round of the competition, but
they did not advance him in the competition.

2 appellate court judges are stepping down
May 24, 2013 21:29 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two Tennessee appellate court judges have notified Gov. Bill Haslam that they will not run for another term on the bench in the August 2014 retention election.
Patricia J. Cottrell, a judge on the Court of Appeals, and Joseph M. Tipton, who sits on the Court of Criminal Appeals bench, will both leave after September of next year.
The announcements come after the state legislature left Tennessee without a way to replace judges who step down or die when a commission expires at the end of next month.
Members of the soon-to-be-defunct Judicial Nominating Commission will make recommendations for replacements to give to Haslam before the panel expires. Haslam will appoint the replacements from those recommendations.
