A recap begins the broadcast. In case you did not see last night’s performances. Which of course, you likely did. Host Carson Daly informs us that THREE of the Top 12 hit the Top 5 on iTunes. He introduces Nick Jonas, who sings his latest hit “Chains.” Nick is a real friend of the show. He performed his song “Jealous” last season. And his guest mentoring stint with Christina during the Battle Rounds was A+.

Singing for the twitter instant save: Mia Z, Brian Johnson and Deanne Johnson. Could Adam lose 2/3rds of his team tonight???

Mia Z – Stormy Monday – I honestly don’t care if Mia farts for 3 minutes. I’m saving her. She’s fallen into that enunciation problem she’s prone to. But her vocal range and tone are spectacular. SAVING MY HOMEGIRL. Pharrell implores: Let’s support different types of music! The blues ya’ll!

Brian Johnson – Amazed by Lonestar – He’s back to singing smaltz. Which is probably the only thing that could save him, at this point. Not that he has a prayer against more popular/better singers. Adam thinks it’s CRAZY that he’s standing up there! Uhm. No its not. “Everybody heard that..he’s amazing.” Nope.

https://youtu.be/SzVE2F1M7PA

Deanna Johnson – It Will Rain by Bruno Mars – She might be relieved to finally be singing a pop song. But then, a rousing performance of “Amazing Grace” might have saved her for sure. This is actually pretty good. She’s holding it together pretty well under pressure. Adam talks about how much confidence building she’s needed. Nevertheless, she’s come so far. He wants her to feel the joy of people’s belief in her. Nah. I’ll vote for the singer I like. The pity bid is pretty annoying.

IT’S CLOSE GUYS. THE VOTE IS SO CLOSE

And WHO WAS SAVED?

Deanna Johnson was instantly saved. Sigh. That could have been way worse. WAY WORSE.  All three were fairly close in votes, but Deanna Johnson and Brian Johnson were running neck and neck.  Eff Adam propping up Deanna with a stupid pity speech. If he believes in his girl so much, he could be extolling her talents, not manipulating viewers based on a sob story. He threw his own singer, Brian, under the bus. Speaking of which. BRIAN ALMOST WON. I don’t think he was good tonight. The Sting performance that landed him in the bottom 3 was actually, better. If Brian had been saved I WOULD HAVE CUT A BITCH. Truly. If the truly deserving Mia couldn’t be saved, Deanna was the second choice.  I don’t think her performance matched Mia’s but she laid it down while under pressure.

I’ve got to completely revise my methodology for making elimination predictions. I was wrong in about every way possible. I correctly chose Brian as a boot, but I thought it wouldn’t even be a fight when it came down to twitter battle. And yet…his iTunes single sold so poorly. Maybe it’s a function of performance order? Yet, Hannah Kirby sang first, and was completely safe. Maybe Brian sang the wrong TYPE of song last night. Once he pulled a tearjerker out of his back pocket, he was back in the game. If Adam cared about him at all (and I don’t think he does, actually) he’d be giving BRIAN the CCM and Gospel tunes. He’d be KILLING with that shiz. As far as Mia Z is concerned? She came within 5% of the others. Brian and Deanna picked songs from accessible genres. Adam’s little speech begging viewers to take pity on poor little stage-frightened Deanna didn’t hurt, either. But based on vocals? Mia DESERVED the save.

Safe:

Kimberly Nichole
Sawyer Fredericks
Meghan Linsey
Joshua Davis
India Carney
Hannah Kirby
Koryn Hawthorne
Rob Taylor
Corey Kent White

Singing for the Save:

Mia Z – Eliminated
Brian Johnson – Eliminated
Deanne Johnson – SAVED
