The 30-year-old topped the poll for the third week running, impressing voters with his rock 'n' roll take on the King of Pop's 'Dirty Diana', grabbing a whopping 34.4%.
Close behind in second place was Virgin Islands native Melanie Amaro, whose soulful take on 'Earth Song' earned a respectable 32.2%
Drew Ryniewicz fared slightly worse, pulling in only 11.7% for her slowed-down cover of 'Billie Jean', which several of the judges noted was too predictable.
Rachel Crow's "super sparkly" performance of The Jackson 5's 'Can You Feel It' was not felt by many and was deemed worthy of only 8.9% of reader votes.
Meanwhile, Chris Rene - who shared a personal connection with the late pop icon - was given 6.1% for his take on The Jackson 5's 'I'll Be There'.
Also failing to impress was Brian 'Astro' Bradley, whose rap remake of 'Black or White' earned only 5.2%.
Finally, falling to the bottom yet again was Marus Canty. His cover of 'PYT' was a relative disaster, gaining a disappointing 1.8%.
