Most shocking was losing Lilly Scott. she played several instruments and wasn't afraid to stretch the limits. Her loss takes one of the most creative players off of the show and I will miss seeing her creativity. Liked to see her on stage with a mandolin.
But I also felt disappointed that a singer/guitar player that I felt had a Paul McCartney Beatle-ish look combined with a Jason Mraz-ish vocal. Alex Lambert was a sensitive High School guy and perhaps his shyness was his downfall -- I think he probably got several phonecalls after the show. He is a talent! (P.S. in the parting videos, I saw Alex holding a ukulele)
