Angie is a Breck girl with singing lessons...
I'm hoping one of the guys go, but I wouldn't be surprised if Angie goes this week. She is not creating the impact that I thought she would be able to.
Just finishing up:
Burnell - this theme was almost made for him to go home
Kree - incredible, as always, great song choice. It really showed off her country/blues vibe perfectly.
Janelle - Still not hearing what the judges hear, she sounds flat and has no power.
Lazaro - Not bad, got into it as it went on but his little miss priss routine at the end was just hysterical.
Candice - I hate that song with every bone in my body but she sounded just fine. She and Kree are just professionals already. I am absolutely dying to hear this song Mariah is waiting for. I wonder what song and what theme it would fit. They must know it is coming up soon. It better not disappoint.
Amber - great song choice! she sounds amazing with this song, the best of the night for me. I always forget she is even on the show, though. I guess she doesn't have the personality or something? Not sure why.
Angie - not a good song choice, she sounded fine for the first 10 seconds then it was just loud angsty yelling. I feel like she has steadily been losing steam in this competition. LOL at the fan blowing her shirt up.
I hate to rank anyone behind Lazaro but Burnell was completely and totally forgettable.
Minaj is so rude, I'd deal with Lazaro for 2 more weeks if we can get rid of her.
Other than Lazaro and We are the Champions, what songs were actually sung? Particularly curious about what Burnell coughed up.
burnell sang you give love a bad name
kree piece of my heart
janelle some awful billy joel song, she didnt have a chance
lazaro we are the champions
angie that evanescence song, i only know one, cant remember the name
im missing someone but i cant remember anything else
Amber sang Heart "What About Love"
Janelle sang Billy Joel "You May Be Right"
Candice + Burnell "The Letter"
Lazaro + Angie "Crazy Little Thing Called Love"
Amber + Kree + Janelle "It's Still Rock and Roll To Me"
Bumping the thread for the results show.
Anyone else watching?
that reminded me of the glee version of someone to love right down to mercedes' solo
I am I like all the fluff..
a pale version...
I don't get some of Jimmy Iovine's critiques. Is he not mentoring the contestants???
and i dont get jimmy's role either. it's like sometimes he wants the contestants to telepath his thoughts.
I didn't love Amber's jeans from last night. To quote Michael Slezak:
Still not loving the fact that Amber sang a ballad last night on "no ballads" night.
awww that was nice of casey
Is top three?
Okay I missed it, what did Casey do?
I'm not watching it anymore because regardless, someone who is immeasurably more talented than Lazaro will be going home tonight.
Seriously, WTF America?
he brought them each a gift that was supposed to remind them of their hometown, but i dont know exactly what they got
i admit i love that lazaro is still there and jimmy is so vexed by it
I decided to pop back in for the thread and because I saw Carrie Underwood was on tonight... She's the ONLY reason I'm watching, but I see that Lazaro is safe AGAIN?! and has that smug SOB look on his face again. Unfreaking believable, they're falling for a bloody sob story and I'm sick of it.
Carrie Underwood is the definition of a SUPERSTAR. I can't wait to see her next month. Hope I get to go backstage and meet her again!
PS - Are the judges drunk? 3/4 had Angie in their top 3? The Voice is INFINITELY better than this dreck.
I hope Lazaro wins to eff with the producers. You let crap in, there's a chance crap will win.
kyle, ask carrie where i can get that big ass ring
I'm so done with letting the public decide. Lazaro should be going home. It's like the more Jimmy says he should leave, the public votes him in.
And Carrie can actually SING too!
Eh, he's cute and inoffensive, like past WGWGs.
I have to win my way backstage again first! You like bling?
Except he don't play a guitar and isn't even as good as those guys, and they're mediocre at best...
Lazaro in the top 3? lol, not shocking but so pathetic.
Carrie didn't sound as amazing as she normally does but still so much better than most of the "singers" out there. Kelly Clarkson is on next week! I will be curious to see if she gets a nice video intro like Carrie did. Kelly really let Clive have it recently and he still probably has some pull on this show.
I wouldn't mind Janelle being elimated and having them use the save JUST because it would mean Lazaro can't back his way into the save by going home the last week of its use.
But he's all the voters have to choose from. I forget, whose the majority of the viewers? I know it isn't the younger set.
that's an interesting thought
once they no longer had to have clive on the show, has he been on?
I gotta say, it's been nice to have all the guys picked off one-by-one rather than the women.
Because in past seasons, it seems as if the women were booted off because the were female. They are much better than the guys this year, so it's nice that at least the most talented are staying.
I do worry that next week one of the more talented females will go but the save is probably being used next week unless Lazaro is eliminated. When is the final week for the save, top 6 or top 5? I know I keep saying it but I just am so afraid of Lazaro being eliminated during the final week of the save and therefore getting it by default. They have to use the save, if for any reason just to keep the show on schedule.
Do they have to use it? I thought they would just vote 2 off the next week if the save was used. Didn't that happen during Kris Allen's season when the judges saved the Justin Timberlake sounding guy? Or have they changed it since then?
I am not sure but I think that in the past they have either voted off two OR let the votes roll over and only had one elimination the next week. They simply can't get rid of two people in a week or the finale will need to be moved up a week. You can look at the schedule to see how it will play out this year.
Anyway, the only option to not use the save is to have another week where there is no elimination and again, that is practically the same as using a save except they just wouldn't tell us who would have been going home. It also makes the week a total waste.
They also have to use the save because they talk it up so much every week, it would be a lot of fuss for something that never comes about, wouldn't it?
Are they doing an Idol Gives Back show this season?
I was slightly annoyed when Mariah was the only one to put Candice in their top three. But, I was more than annoyed that the voters put Lazaro into this week's top three. I can't believe he got more votes than Candice and Amber and Janelle. The other contestants must have been so frustrated. What a joke.
I was surprised that Candice wasn't on the top of most of the lists, and for her to not make it on many lists was
I was reading Michael Slezak's rant about tonight's results/rankings. He may have a point about Kree and Janelle splitting the country vote (although I think Janelle is on the upswing) and that Amber and Candice are splitting the "R&B Diva" vote.
Lazaro in the Top 3?? Seriously??!! What a joke. If the Top 6 is the last time they can use the save, and Lazaro ends up in that spot, I hope Nicki stands by her promise and refuse to save him. Because do they REALLY have to use it?? In regards to keeping on a time schedule (i.e., they allow an extra 5 minutes in the planning for the "oh so dramatic use the save moment", they could easily use that time with Nicki going all "Nicki" and taking up that time being a drama queen. But she likes Lazaro, right? So actually I could see her using it on him.
I don't want them to use it just for the "its the last time we can use it so we have to use it" idea, unless its a girl at the bottom next week.
