Judge Keith Urban told AccessHollywood.com's Laura Saltman at Thursday night's "American Idol" Season 12 Top 10 party that he was pleased with the group.
"I think it's really cool. It's eclectic and I was hoping it would be somewhat eclectic. But I think the consistency is they're all great singers," Keith said. "Everybody in there is a really great singer and some of them aren't about star power or the stage moves... but they're all really great singers."
Judge Mariah Carey said she is impressed by the singers.
"I respect them for their talent and for what they're doing," Mariah told Laura. "I really admire the fact that they're able to just sing and do in front of all these people, after never really doing that previously. So, for me [there are] some incredible vocalists."
