    I normally don't like things like that. I don't like the posts about praying for the families, the political threads that come after a tragedy, the shoulda woulda couldas, and the benefits, but that was beautiful and understated.

    Matry - I cried and got goosebumps. So tastefully done and one of my favorite songs.

    Nick's piano is on fire? Is that the producer's last ditch effort to get him to cut his hair? I have visions of it going up into flames...

    That was so beautiful. They couldn't start the show w/out saying or doing something regarding Friday and this was the classiest way about doing it. Well done indeed.

    I like Nick, but that was really weird. Like OTT CeeLo level of weird. :lol: @ Carson doing the kicks.

    I hope he gets a contract because I think he can do well on adult contemporary radio. I agree Cassaddeee has this in the bag, but Nick has been such a pleasant surprise all season.

    Why is she oversinging "Over You" again? Guess it's too much for me to hope that the end of the song results in her sailing towards the ceiling like a disco ball?

    Cassaddee looks like a psychotic disco ball.

    I'd hope so, because her dress is more sparkly than she is.

    Don't be dissing Adam, even if he was wearing a bad wig.

    The Hobbit did well at the box office this weekend. Maybe some of the dwarfish luck will rub off on Terry? :p

    I really hate this song, and I'm not sure Terry likes it either. But I guess it was nice to do it for his son.

    Terry needs a good band and start making good records and touring. I think he'd do better than Casade commercially. He needs a really good song. Maybe Adam will write something like Moves Like Jagger or Payphone (which got a grammy nod).

    Are we not supposed to notice that Cassady is flat a lot of the time? I like that the judges don't try to make quips at the contestant's expense, but over the top praise for all three of these people is a bit annoying.

    The thing is, with the exception of Xtina, most singers are flat live. :lol: Autotune is their friend.

    While it was w/out a doubt OTT Cee Lo wise, that was fun to watch Nick unleash his inner Rockette. :D While I didn't care for the song, I loved the performance of it by Nick. He was having a ball up there and brought us along for the ride. I really hope he gets picked up by someone out there, as ITA w/whoever said it up thread, Nick would do really, really well on the Adult Contemporary charts. I also totally agree w/whoever said they'd go to see him live. Me too.

    Terry's face when he's been surprised by his Family from Scotland the last couple of weeks has been priceless!! :D

    Not sure what to think about Terry and Cassadee's performances so far. Everyone seems just a wee bit off tonight. Understandably of course.

    mini CeeLo should sit in for big Ceelo instead of whoever is doing it this spring.


    And Casaddy is not doing Faith Hill justice. ((((Faith))))

    Usher, and Shakira is replacing Xtina.

    Based on all the performances tonight, I'd pick CeeLo, followed by Blake if I were going to vote. If I had to vote for one of the 3 contestants I guess it would be the guy from Scotland, but none of them would motivate me to pick up the phone and dial.

    Turned it off when I saw Cassaaddee in the pimp spot. Just give her the title and let's get on to next season already!

    The video seems to be gone, but here is Mandisa's version of that "Cry" song from when she was on American Idol, which kind of destroys Cassadee.

    Pretty white girl sang real nice on that Over You song though. Her duet was ok, kinda good not amazing. Terry was great on Dude and also I wanna know.....totally wrong voice for Broken Wings though. Nick was Nick, IMO he's done very well to finish 3rd here, I'd rather see Amanda still in this though.

    Is it possible for Nick to win? If all three contestants reach the top 10 in I-tune sales, then wouldn't that portion of the score be the same for all three? I was thinking they might have a different judge win this year or would they allow Blake to win 2 years in a row?
