Sorry I am having issues. Please post below.

I missed the first ten minutes. Sorry. Family stuff going down so I may need to take a break from time to time. Hope the show didn’t have anything going on yet. Commercial now.

Group Number – Blake and Adam’s Team – Peace of Mind by Boston

Joslyn Rivera is up. Adam stole her from Christina. She’s singing “Give Your Heart a Break.” Adam wants her to connect with the audience. Her styling is good. I think she has pretty good stage presence. Maybe a couple of sharp high notes. Breath issues. Okay, she’s losing me. Connecting does not equal acting. Just saying. Blake says he wanted her on his team. He think she looks like a star on the big stage. Christina says she shines and was working the stage. She didn’t say anything about her singing. ;-) She wants her to do a ballad. Cee-lo has a big ass wig on and big white fluffy top. He says she’s solid. Adam is really proud of her. Says she killed it. Hmm. I guess I didn’t see the same.

Christina Milan is screeching about tweeting and interviewing Joslyn. Joslyn thinks she connected with the audience. Ahem.

Terry McDermott is up now. He’s one of my early faves. Blake gave him “Don’t Stop Believing.” I try not to be a fan girl but Blake looks good in plaid. Team Plaid! Sorry. Terry is really good. I don’t know what his market would be, but he’s entertaining. Christina says he knows he’s good. She says he’s easy on the ears and has precision. She says he’s dead on and is a fan. Cee-lo has a little fan. He says he’s a fan of Terry, too! Effortlessness! Is that a word? Blake says he’s making classic rock cool again. He wants America to know that when God passed out the ability to rock, he gave Terry a lil extra! Blake is a fun judge. I have hated some of his decisions, but I enjoy his persona.

Melanie Martinez is singing “Hit the Road Jack.” Adam thinks she’s going to freak everyone out. Melanie hopes to find her sass. She’s wearing a gold outfit that matches her hair. The collar is dark like the other side. This is ok. Waiting for a moment here. Kinda forgettable besides her appearance. Adam seems to be enjoying it. No bad notes, but not that exciting either. Blake says he’s a big fan of hers. He likes that she isn’t interested in fitting in. Christina says it’s a tough song and thought it was a pitchy at the beginning. She likes her artistic vision, but seems underwhelmed. Adam didn’t compare it to Ray Charles’ vision. He was mesmerized by her performance. Okeydokey!

Liz Davis is up. Blake thinks she’s country as mud. Hmm. He wants to soften her up. She’s singing Martina McBride’s “Independence Day.” I’m not a fan of this song, but it’s in her wheelhouse and she’s doing a good job with it. Christina says she has a strong solid voice and thinks she found a good home on Blake’s team. Cee-lo loved the intro and thinks she looks lovely. He’s proud to be an American. Blake says there’s a lot on the line and he thanks her for proving him right. He says she did a great job.

Cassadee Pope is next, singing “My Happy Ending.” She’s worried about being predictable. Duh. Blake says not to worry. She wants to mess with the melody. He tells her no. Not a fan of Avril and not a fan of this. Sorry. Screechy. Blake is doing the chicken head move. Christina says she has a pretty tone, but didn’t hit the notes. She says she was solid. Tells her to trust herself because she has it inside her. Cee-lo loves what she did and thought her vibrato brought the song to life. Adam says he’s a huge fan, but doesn’t know who she is as a singer. Blake says she will be around for a long time and Adam will figure out it. He says she’s really good at being a pop rock chick. He also says she’s a fan favorite.

Back again! Carson reminds us we can vote for our faves.

Bryan Keith reminds us his dad won 2 Grammy awards. He wants people to want more of him. He needs to ditch the hat. He’s singing “Iris.” Adam wants him to crank it up a notch because it’s a mid-tempo song. He really wants America to love him. He’s a decent singer, but I don’t think he has a lot of charisma. The crowd is screaming though. Maybe they like the hat? He’s not doing anything special with this song. We have the swaybots out in full force. This guy has bugged me from day one so I guess I am biased. Adam looks pleased. Blake never noticed his lower register before… says he sounds like Neil Diamond. He says watch the dips in the lower register, but the crowd loves him. Christina thinks he owned the song as it built. Likes his passion. Adam is proud! He says his energy is inviting and comforting. Says the soulfulness pre-empted the wonky low notes.

Michaela Page is up now. She’s the 16 year old who hosts Internet shows. She’s singing “Everybody Talks.” She thinks Blake is the best coach ever because he’s so down to earth. More swaybots. Her hair is extra high tonight. I like her normally, but I think a different song might have been better. Cee-lo says it’s the best performance of the night. He likes her style and her charisma and vocal performance. Adam says she surprised him and in her range. He gives Blake kudos for song selection. Blake thinks she made him look smart. He seriously loves her and says it was the best performance of the night. He tells America to vote for her!

Julio Cesar Castillo does “El Rey.” He gets a standing ovation. The crowd loves him. He’s the Mariachi singer from Chicago. Christina loves his passion. She loves the richness of his vibrato. Blake thinks he made the people understand even though it was in a different language. Sorry, I lost some of my post, but he was way better than last week. Likeable for sure. Blake seems to be going for diversity on his team.

Loren Allred is up now. Adam gives her the most improved award. She’s singing “All Around the World” by Lisa Stanfield. She’s on the voice singing covers to do her own music. ;-) Adam wants her to bring the sultry, confident vibe. I think she’s bringing the sultry, but heard a few wonky notes. Adam looks pumped. Cee-lo loves the cool vibe and finds her awesome. Adam thinks it’s incredible and wants to hear more upper register. He thinks it’s so good. Anyone else thinks she looks like Jennifer Anniston?

Amanda Brown gets the pimp spot! She used to sing background for Adele. Adam stole her. Adam thinks she’s comfortable and confident. She’s singing “Dream On” by Aerosmith. Adam wants her to emote. He says she’s easy to look at. She does have lots of charisma. This is really good. Nice pimp spot this time. adam gives standing ovation. Crowd is going crazy. Xtina is fanning herself. “Get it girl” she says. She thinks she thought she brought it home. Adam gloats about stealing her from Cee-lo and declares it the best performance of the night. Adam says she’s a rock star!

Who did you like? Who has the stronger team? Are you voting and for whom?

    Yikes. That was a mess.

    I can’t believe Adam took Joselyn for some other reason than being cannon fodder. Such mediocre singer.

    ETA: LOL to Cee-Lo

  • OffLeash

    Thank you. I was wondering if there was something wrong with me. :D

  • mileyfan123

    This social media stuff is really stupid

  • Amber Alk

    I really like Jocelyn but that performance was not good

  • Jordana33

    Terry has a great voice, but everytime I watch him, I feel like it’s the 80s.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    I think Terry is a very good singer, but as a fan of Hard Rock I’ve heard so many great hard rock singers with high range, current or old times, that it doesn’t impress me. There isn’t nothing much unique and his range is actually not that big. But he’s very good!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I agree. Terry is very good, but I thought that he isn’t original.

  • chillj

    I like Terry.  I think he hit a really bum note, but so has everyone.

  • OffLeash

    Is Terry gonna keep using the whole Durbin catalog from Idol? LOL

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    Me too, although I didn’t like that performance as much as I wanted to. Maybe because that song is just so tired now.

  • mileyfan123

    My friends and I were cringing through Terry’s performance. He was off pitch a lot.

  • OffLeash

    They’re all nervous tonight, poor things. That was pitchy dawg. And Melanie doesn’t seem to know who she is as an artist. Her genre pick tonight is confusing.

  • mileyfan123

    I didn’t like this for Melanie either…. It was kind of predictable. 

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    LOL. Maybe I’m Amazed by James is the best cover I’ve ever seen  of this song, but the version of DSB of James was just ok. At least James hit notes way bigger than Terry.

  • mileyfan123

    Jesus, even the judges suck tonight.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Melanie changed the melody of that song substantially and I didn’t care for it.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/OSOOTOBRL4XGHQNICOXCCN5IXQ lisa

    Jocelyn has my vote! I would like to see girl with 2 tone hair color think her name
    is melanie please goooooo awayyy

  • OffLeash

    Terry’s DSB wasn’t great either. I hope he picks something different next time. This is becoming annoying. 

  • chillj

    Me neither.  I might have had she slowed it down (a lot).

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    I like how tonight they made clear they are stripping down to what is essential, which is “The Voice”! LOL, you know, no bells and whistles, unlike that other show…

  • chillj

    I usually like his choices, but he sings “plain,” and I like that about him, but the song needed a little more.

  • OffLeash

    She’s out of breath. Nerves I bet.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    She sounds much better on the chorus than on the verses.

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    These song choices are tired as hell. Somebody pick something daring or something where your voice could really soar. Please!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    lol I have to laugh when I see Cee Lo! 

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    Liz is so forgettable. Gracia would have been a much better choice. I don’t know what Blake was thinking.

  • OffLeash

    Terry is cute. He looks like a hobbit.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    Here comes the wobbly vibratto machine, Cassadee.

  • OffLeash

    Not excellent, but good enough for best of the night for me so far.

  • Jordana33

    Why did Blake stand for that?

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    Yeah that was the best I’ve heard Casscade

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    “I think you’re gonna be around time for a long time”…why does Blake think it? LOL

    ETA; yep, the best of her, but just ok, IMO.

  • kmd23

    I just don’t think Cassadee is that good. She is just OK.

  • OffLeash

    Wow! I didn’t recognize Rod Stewart at first. He’s aged a lot since last time I saw him on TV, not that long ago.

  • http://twitter.com/ronnydias Ronny Dias

    This Cassadee chick has got too much vibrato in her voice… It sounds kind of annoying, IMO.

  • OffLeash

    I like Brian. The guy is usually goooood.

  • mileyfan123

     This is really karaoke. Liz has been the best tonight, and she wasn’t that good.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    Bryan. Soft rocker with a raspy baritone voice. This is a no-brainer to the next round. lol

  • OffLeash

    It started out rough, the low parts were pitchy, but the chorus was pretty good. Best so far.

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    Man, these contestants and coaches do not have strong imaginations when it comes to song choices. Does The Voice suffer a limited song choice dilemma also?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    I think their song choices are limited. Plus, everyone is kinda afraid to take a song that isn’t too much known. But until now the show is being far better than the trainwreck festival we saw Wed on X-Factor.

  • OffLeash

    I didn’t really care for Michaela before, but I really liked her performance tonight. 

  • jpfan2

    ABC used Home to promo Extreme Makeover.  The song is officially everywhere.

  • http://twitter.com/ronnydias Ronny Dias

     Madre de Dios! I thought I had mistakenly tuned in a Mexican soap opera, Lol.

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    Wow at the crowd reaction for Julio….

    He is going to be here for awhile…is he? Oh man…SMDH

    *groan*

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    I just can imagine how thrilled will be UMG to sign Julio if he wins the whole thing.

  • OffLeash

    Wow! The crowd loved that. When whatshername picked a song in Spanish on Idol, she got eliminated right away. Somehow, I don’t think the same thing’s gonna happen to Julio LOL. 

  • Jordana33

    Hopefully, Loren and Amanda won’t disappoint…..

  • Jordana33

    Oh no Loren….not good.

  • http://twitter.com/ronnydias Ronny Dias

    What’s with Adam’s homeless t-shirt? Is it some weird fashion trend I was unaware of?!

  • OffLeash

    Bad song choice for Loren. Glad for her Cee Lo didn’t agree lmao

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    Aw man, this is weak! I LOVE Lisa Stansfield, and this version? I’m sorry, I do not get Loren.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    Loren impressed me a lot on the Knock Out Rounds, but not now. I hope she gives a great rendition tomorrow, because she won’t be saved by the public vote.

  • mileyfan123

     I like Amanda, but she has no musical style. This isn’t the same person that sang in the battle rounds, who wasn’t the same person at auditions. She is kind of a strong voiced empty vessel.

  • OffLeash

    Amanda is a beast. Wow! That was awesome!

  • http://twitter.com/ronnydias Ronny Dias

    Amanda Brown, as entertaining as it gets! Well done!

  • Jordana33

    However, if you look at some of Amanda’s videos online, this is exactly her style, and she actually performs “Dream On” a lot. She picked an odd audition song and Cee-Lo picked the battle rounds song, not her.

  • OffLeash

    Amanda, Bryan and Michaela best of the night for me, in that order.

  • mileyfan123

     I shouldn’t have to seek out additional videos to figure out someone’s style. That should be on the artist to present themselves with a unified artistic vision, and Amanda has failed at that so far. Watch her come out and sing a country song next week lol.

  • Jordana33

    Well, her Ooh La La song in the knockout rounds was very similar to the style that she did Dream On, so technically, you shouldn’t have to seek out anything else. I was just trying to help you. 

  • mileyfan123

    Sadly, the talent on X Factor appears better than this show. Vino, Tate, Jennel, and Carly wiped the floor with these people.

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    I don’t think the talent on X-Factor is better, but I find them more interesting. 

  • mileyfan123

    No, they aren’t similar, but nice try, and it still doesn’t make up for the fact that she auditioned with Valerie which has nothing similar to her performance tonight in style. 

  • http://twitter.com/ronnydias Ronny Dias

     Well, that’s what some people would call variety. Just saying.

  • alonzo7

    All my votes went to Amanda and Bryan-don’t care too much who makes it from Blakes team.  Julio was cute but can’t imagine signing him to a recording contract.

  • chillj

    Amanda really killed that song.  I think she doesn’t look the style she is, but she works it!  She looks like Whitney Houston, but she wails…

  • Jordana33

    “Valerie”, the song performed in her auditions is by a rock group and she’s also mentioned radiohead as one of her favorite groups, so I still maintain that her taste sways towards Rock and alt rock, which is the spin that she put on Ooh La La, so she is actually consistent. People automatically put her in the R&B box because she’s black and sang an R&B song in the battle rounds, but that isn’t her style.

  • mileyfan123

    Lol, I just looked up Amanda on youtube. What did I find? Videos of her singing At Last and I’m Every Woman..she is such a rock star lol.

    Just like I thought…pure wedding singer karaoke.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NDYOWBIIPZU6PBRHGOPT2ZZJXQ sweetmm

    WOWWWWWWWW Great choice of a PIMP spot!!! Hopefully other shows take note of this ;)

    Team Adam Amanda obviously; Team Blake Terry still does it for me :)

  • nncw

    Favorites for the night: Terry, Michaela and Amanda.
    Least likeable: Joslyn, Byan, Loren

  • OffLeash

    They would have to go for the Hispanic market IMO. No idea how that market feels about talent show contestants. But it would be their choice if they sign him because he won’t win anyway.

  • mileyfan123

     She sang Valerie in the style of Amy Winehouse, not the Zutons LOL

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    My faves tonight were Amanda, Mckayla and Terry. I guess those are the ones I want through, because I didn’t care for anyone else. But then again, CeeLo’s team is the only one I’m really invested in, so I dunno.

  • OffLeash

    Cee Lo’s team kicks butt. Can’t wait for Wednesday! 

  • http://twitter.com/tukicarreno Tuki

    I agree Team Ceelo FTW! I was looking forward to them tonight.
    Oh well, will wait for Wednesday night.
    Cannot wait to see Cody perform! Hope he has another moment.

  • http://twitter.com/cara_lee pj

     I totally dig Amanda!  This may sound weird, but last week she reminded me of Gwen Stefani.  She’s totally a fun performer and that’s what we want! No??

  • Jordana33

    Well, she can sing at my wedding anyday!

  • http://twitter.com/cara_lee pj

    I also like quirky but Melanie Martinez lost me tonight.  

  • notthatmary

    Umm.  Was I the only one distracted by Amanda’s “drooping breast” backless top thing?  

    Liked:  Terry, Julio, Amanda.  Have already forgotten performances by Loren, Joselyn, Liz and Cassadee.  Didn’t much care for Bryan, Melanie or Micheala.

    Think Terry is the only sure bet on Blake’s team and Julio the only one he would for sure not save.

    If Bryan and Amanda get the votes, would expect Adam to keep Melanie.

  • OffLeash

    Yeah, I’m done with Melanie too. I liked her at first, but it’s 2 weeks in a row she’s neither good nor even interesting. 

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    That’s what I want. This has been such a boring episode, and barely anybody was exciting tonight. So it was nice for her to come out of the gate like that. She may be suffering whatever identity crisis she’s having as an artists, but honestly I never cared if someone is too all over the place genre-wise on these shows. As long as you perform well and entertain me, I don’t care what genre you sing week to week.

  • Me Whoiam

    I don’t think that the talent on X-Factor is better; I think
    that the X-Factor judges’ taste in singers is more simpatico with mine.  However, I prefer the personalities of the Voice judges.  In other words, the Voice judges are more fun to watch.

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    Yeah, I hope those two goes far. Terry and Amanda have a real shot at the top 8/6 if they continue to perform well. 

  • bahogbugan_simj

    Julio belongs to another show although i kinda enjoyed that performance LOL

    Bryan, Amanda, Cassadee and Michaela are the ones that i liked tonight

    i love Terry’s voice but the song choice was disappointing and i don’t think he pushed himself above it.  i’m still hoping he can get through though.

  • Jordana33

    My favorites were Amanda and Terry, but I didn’t see Michaela’s performance, so I’ll have to wait for the clip. Most of the other performances were not very exciting. After tonight, I really wish that Adam hadn’t eliminated Joe Kirkland (the guy who sang “Gives You Hell” and “Mean”). I know his voice wasn’t that popular with everyone, but I really enjoyed his style. Thank goodness for team Cee Lo!

  • OffLeash

    Team Blake’s results might be interesting. Cassadee’s legion of fans will put her through of course. I don’t think Liz stands a chance, but we’re left with Julio who might be the wild card if he gets the Hispanic vote (IF they even watch the show that is, which isn’t clear) Terry and Michaela. If Julio makes it, it’ll be between Terry and Michaela. Michaela was really good tonight IMO. I hope song choice won’t hurt Terry. I like him, even though he didn’t impress me tonight.

  • jr8809

    God could you be more of a hater. Amanda was clearly was the best and you keep talking about she doesn’t know her style. This girl can literally sing anything which should be the point. Judging from your posts, clearly you’ll about X Factor which is good somebody needs to watch that show. lol

  • durbesque

    I can’t stand girl rockers and I’m sick of ‘Dream On’.  But Amanda changed all that.  Loved her…LOVED HER!!!

  • OffLeash

    I’ve been rewatching her video 3 times now. Dayum what a performance! One of the best I’ve ever seen on a talent show. And I too was tired of that song, but she owned it. Amazing! 

  • http://twitter.com/tukicarreno Tuki

    I really hope Terry pulls through and not Julio.. Please!
    He is sooo good. Blake just screw him over with the song choice. Man why did he choose Don’t Stop Believein? That song has been done to death. Terry is so much better than that song. Hope his fans voted.

  • verov

    The group number really spotlighted the contrast between weak voices (Loren, Melanie, Cassadee, Joselyn) and stronger ones (Terry, Amanda, Michaela and Bryan), something of which you’re less aware when they sing separately.
    Really confirmed my preference for Amanda (wow!) and Terry (boring tonight though) and my profound dislike of Cassadee-needs-autotune and Melanie’s Whisper.
    How Cassadee has an army of fans is utterly bewildering.

  • http://twitter.com/HighTensions Jake Williams

    I agree. A lot more star potential on that show as well. CeCe did incredible on her sing off as well as David. I will watch the voice again when someone with star potential comes back on. Lindsey pavao had it, but she got eliminated for a opera singer,lol.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    Cassadee came from a famous band. It’s like someone already famous, for example, Katy Perry (mutatis mutandis in which regards the size of the fanbase) auditioned for the The Voice. No matter how bad she would be, her hardcore fans would go crazy for her.

    And Loren is really good. Her covers of Vision of Love and Chasing Pavements are impressive. But she came too late and too nervous (tonight) in the competition.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/PVEFG2TOUIXSROKUSO2O2DOWWE Taylor

    Damn! Amanda blew that out of the water tonight! I loved her performance last week but this week was a WOW moment!

    I finally “got” Terry last week. His voice was golden on the Boston song to start out the show. Blake gave him a song that didn’t highlight what is best about his voice, but people do love that old Journey song, so maybe that will end up helping him.

  • verov

    I realise she came with ready-made fans and ‘fans’ aren’t exactly known for rational decision-making when it comes to their idols, but it’s hard to see how she could have acquired so many fans in the first place (admittedly I’ve only listened to her former band’s one song that was covered on Glee – awful). Mind you, there are plenty of other ‘famous bands’ and singers whose popularity I will never understand either……

  • http://www.facebook.com/djafans Fan Dja

    My fav’s are Michaela, Julio and Bryan.  First night of audience voting, I’m really curious how this is going to play out.

    Loren was great last week, not so much this week.  Nicole should have made it to the live rounds IMO.

  • verov

    If he survives this round, though, he should probably sing something more contemporary even if he sticks with Spanish given that the voting demographic skews young (Shakira or Juanes would probably go over well with the audience).

  • http://www.facebook.com/djafans Fan Dja

    I completely agree with you on this. 

  • http://twitter.com/jepriy Jepoy Ramos

    When he sang something contemporary (Justin Bieber) or something latino that isn’t Mariachi ( Gloria Estefan – Conga), it was awful. Really, really awful. Almost a parody.

  • mikaylaislove

  • bahogbugan_simj

    can i just say that i love that they didn’t go crazy on the stage production like X-Factor US did

    the contestants have not earned that ridiculous type of staging YET so i liked that they kept it to a minimum and that we could focus more on the singers.  i wonder if it’s the producer’s decision or the coaches?

    we know that Christina and CeeLo have an affinity for the OTT.  i mean i also like that but i hope they wait until these contestants are down to 8.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Catching up with the last half of the show. I was impressed by Michaela and Amanda last night, and a little disappointed with Loren (after last week). Terry and Bryan are good, but I find that they lack originality. Melanie is original, but not my taste and I still don’t get all of the enthusiasm over Cassadee. So far, no favorite in this bunch.

    Awesome itunes sales for Amanda! Melanie reminds me a bit of Jason Castro from American idol (season 7). They don’t always perform well live, but their studio recordings are usually excellent. If I were Adam, I would save Melanie, assuming that the audience picks Amanda. On a shallow note, I think that someone needs to do Melanie a favor and hide all of her Christmas tree bows.
    Michaela and Terry would be my top 2 for Blake’s team. Julio also had one of his best performances (despite the outdated song choice), but Cassadee also had an OK night.  I suspect that Cassadee’s fanbase will get her the most votes and I worry that Blake will save Liz no matter what. This would leave Julio, Michaela and Terry vulnerable. Seriously, if I were a country artist, I would avoid Blake’s team. He has a tendency to pick his personal favorite (which generally doesn’t agree with viewers) and eliminate all the rest, which makes no sense, IMO. He’s supposed to be representing the country artists, not getting rid of them in favor of artists that he can’t advise properly,  and this season has had no shortage of decent ones (e.g. Gracia). He’s too concerned with vote splitting.

    I don’t watch this show, but I had to check out the video of the supposed token rocker of the group.
    Holy bad 70′s shag/mullet! He reminds me of Davy Jones trying to be a rocker, lol.Also, I agree with OffLeash, very hobbit-like. I’m so sick of this song as well, please take it out of reality show rotation.Nothing special, very little range, not impressed at all.

    I said last week that Amanda and Cody were the ones to beat.  Amanda held up her part.  Hope Bam Bam does too!

    Agree 100% Really hope Bam Bam pulls through again.
    Just hope Ceelo did not pick a bad song for him..

  • girlygirltoo

    Was I the only person not blown away by Amanda? I thought she was good, but nothing special.

  • girlygirltoo

    I don’t get the love for Cassadee — she was pitchy and I’m not a fan of vibrato in general, and I didn’t think it was needed in this song.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    No, you’re not the only one. I agree with you, that Amanda was good, but not a “wow” moment for me either.

  • hcpoirot

    Joseyln is everywhere. What?

    Melanie song choices is super duper boring. The song lyrics mostly only Hit The Road Jack, Dont You Coming Back No More again and again and again. Why Adam pick her this song is beyond me. She will lose some votes.

    So far Terry is killing it. If he play guitar next week, he got a chance to win. (if he can move to top 12)

  • Nadine_Bitch

    I just watched the show and I think Terry is good. He may not hit the highest notes, but he delivered good. I like the tone of his voice and his confidence.

    But the best DSB version for me would be obviously Season 8 top9;)

    The dark horse of this competition had to be Amanda. She only got pick by one judge: Cee Lo. If there is no steal in season 3, she will be already gone cause Cee Lo  did not choose her in battle round.

    She is 100% move to top 12.

  • OffLeash

    I didn’t even like the girl until last night, I found her generic, but she totally blew me away, and I don’t usually like rocker chicks. I hope she keeps picking rock songs, because that’s the only time she truly shines and stands out IMO, and boy does she shine then. Much much better than when she goes Whitney wannabe on us. Then she’s just a dime a dozen. 

  • OffLeash

    We should be grateful to CeeLo for his bad judgement. Now we get to have both Trevin and Amanda in the finale. CeeLo’s mistake was to pit them against each other. He didn’t know what to do of Amanda, not that I find him a good coach to start with. Adam is the perfect coach for her. :)

    Amando was good but no wowing from me.  Not a Cassadee fan either.

    David had such star potential that he was left behind. That says a lot about the quality of the judgment going on on X-Factor.
    And the audience ratings just prove me right.
