For British Invasion night, Alex & Sierra took on the One Direction hit "Best Song Ever", slowing down the tempo and changing the arrangement completely.The performance earned them massive applause from the audience and a standing ovation from Simon Cowell.The performance earned them mixed reviews with two judges, Kelly Rowland and Demi Lovato, pointing out how uncomfortable the couple looked when not near each other(the performance featured them separated by a wall), to their mentor Simon Cowell expressing his own disappointment over how the performance went.The cristicism didn't stop voters from putting Alex & Sierra through to the next week.They then went up against the other 7 acts in a face-off.For Divas/Unplugged night, the couple took on two songs.Alex and Sierra both auditioned for season 12 of American Idol, with Alex making it to Hollywood week and producers saying no to Sierra.

They got the chance to write songs with some big names including John Legend, Jason Mraz, and One Direction's Harry Styles.Their "Diva" song was "Say My Name" by Destiny's Child, which did make Alex & Sierra nervous because they were going to be singing the song in front of Kelly Rowland, who had been a member of Destiny's Child. Their "Unplugged" song, "Say Something" by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera, was a risk for them because of Sierra deciding to play piano on the song.However, the performance worked for them and earned them well deserved praise by the judges.In this part of the competition, Alex & Sierra took on the John Travolta/Olivia Newton-John classic "You're The One That I Want" from the 1978 musical film Grease.The judges praised them for putting their own twist on the song.
