Before the bad blood with Nick had fully developed, Jes managed a successful co-write with the sassy songwriter, giving them the first winning song, the hyper-poppy "My City."
Would "My Ridiculous" have been as enjoyable ridiculous without Jes' contributions? We think not. Though this club-banger didn't take the win, we'll always have a soft spot for lyrics like: "Drop my panties to the floor and I’m walking out the door."
Jes' roadtrip hook had the judges inspired for a road trip, and so she took to the co-write with Melissa and Amber. The finished song, "Home for Me" didn't give the girls the win, but it did result in Jes writing in the backseat of a car with a keyboard across her lap, which was worth it now wasn't it?
Jes' hook "Hard Hearted" might have had the judges feeling a touch cold themselves, but her impressive operatic vocals and contributions to "Walk Thru Walls" helped her special co-writer Johnny's full realized song take the win.
When the songwriters were challenged to write a love song, Jes had plenty of inspiration -- her budding relationship with Johnny. After her hook netted her in the top tier she got a little love sick, or just sick. Jes struggled through her co-writing session with Melissa, and the judges lamented the finished product, "It's You" was rather forgettable. But lyrics like, "Assaulting all of my senses from your smell to your sentences," kept Jes safe from elimination.
Jes' "Save Yourself" had Los Angeles pedestrians hooked, and the finished song -- written with troublemaker Nick -- left her safe for another week.
Jes' hooks weren't impressive enough for Evan Bogart, but she did bring the call and response to the Justin Bieber-aimed track "Love You Down" with Scotty.
Jes bared all in the "Kiss the Flame" challenge, opening up about abuse. "The Last Candle," which she wrote with Brian Judah, didn't have the judges feeling appropriately emotional, and forced them to send Brian packing for his role in the songs super-slick production.
Jes' pop hook was a little aggressive, taunting someone with clear motives. In the end, the high schoolers and the judges felt the melody of "See Through" forgave the pebble-kicking lyrics, netting Jes a spot in the final three.
