Jason went first and performed John Legend's "Ordinary People," which he explained was a risk to sing because people tend to compare him to John. Vincent followed with Brandy's 1995 song "Sittin' Up In My Room."
Meghan was a fan of Vincent, explaining that she "lost it" during his performance compared to Jason. She told Jason that she just "wasn't as pumped up" as having watched him in previous weeks. And the audience seemed to agree. Meanwhile, Diddy told Vincent he had a "beautiful voice," but that Jason has "fought for his seat." Ultimately, the audience chose Vincent, and he became the first person to secure a seat at the finale, sending Jason home.
Jason, although telling Meghan he loved her, said that the things she said had were hurtful, and then explained to the audience that this would not be the last they would see of him.
