"#Washington’s Allen Stone sounds excellent, but after the three songs we’ve had, this is leaving me wanting quite a bit more. In a Eurovision-style show without all these ad breaks, it might read a little different. #AmericanSongContest," one of the fans remarked. "I like Allen Stone a lot, especially of the auto-picks by the jury. Not sure if it’s the one I want to win the whole thing though #AmericanSongContest," one of the comments read.

"Initially, I felt I was not going to like Allen Stone, but his solid performances and smooth sound really made me love his music. Wish he did a little more vocally, but he’s so solid that I can’t blame him for sticking to what is natural. #americansongcontest," a tweet said. "Allen Stone vibrato's! I usually hate when singers do it. They don't do it right. But his is hella smooth that it works. #americansongcontest," one of the fans opined.
