    rd 1: some guy who looks like he is in herman's hermits and a country singer. i'd pick the country singer in a heartbeat but the other guy isnt awful.

    Team Blake up first. Michael Buble as the other mentor? Yep, that's country. :lol: It's Terry the Scot vs. Casey the country butt slapper. I'd go with Terry.

    I concur with Blake for this round. No steals on this. Sorry, country butt-slapper.

    Terry and Casey sounded great together, but both were a little lacking in the solo parts. But Terry faked it better. I really thought Terry would run away with it, but Casey was a lot closer than expected.

    And, well, Terry lives in New Orleans. Not that I'm biased.

    I'll give you two LA people in the finals if you'll vote for the AR guy.

    hat guy vs some guy who has no memorable accessory singing santeria
    like the last round, i dont think either is going to make much of a dent in the competition
    without the hat, i'm not sure there is that much diff betw the two
    i'd pick the hat

    And Adam stacks the deck. Grad school Collin against Bryan the hat. Was like watching a stockbroker hanging with a hood. :p I'd go for Bryan. Loved his audition.

    Hat joins Herman's Hermit. Whoa. Blake and CeeLo in for the steal. Didn't expect that here. They only get two steals. I'd have waited.

    I so don't understand Adam. I thought Colin clearly won that battle, and Brian will be gone in the first round. Flat, flat, flat. And a rasp is only good if you can control it--his rasp is due to reaching for the notes.

    I was really hoping Grad School would go away. Now we're stuck with him. However, he was getting a nice burn in on Adam with that "I saw your shows when I was in diapers' stuff. :lol: Too bad he got interrupted by Cee Lo and Blake.

    Commercial time - two brats cleaning the inside of a Subaru. I'd beat my spawn if he did that, not laugh. :shuffle:

    ETA - and Grad School gets a second chance with Blake. Which is the 3rd bad move he's made in just a few short months.

    I don't like either of those two. Diego, sweetie, it wasn't the lyrics, it was the note. He couldn't hit the note. I doubt he'll be able to hit it by the time the commercial is over :p

    I'd go with Alaska as well. Either one would go out in the next round so it really doesn't matter. I'm with Blake, if I HAD to pick somebody, I'd go with Alaska, but CeeLo goes with Diego. As the song says, it's probably moot anyway.

    Xtina has really lost some weight. She's going on tour in the spring. I guess she's getting in show shape.

    And the judges do NOT like people who have more You Tube hits than they do. Diego is weird enough for Cee Lo. He's this year's Erin Martin. I expect to see him in feathers head to toe next time he's on stage.

    I may be one of the few people on this planet who love Rob Thomas. :shuffle:

    Billie Joe is now in rehab. Was it Xtina who drove him over the edge? :lol: I need Nelly's to go though here. Desperately.

    I will be so disappointed if Nelly doesn't take this. He's such a talent.

    Actually, I really liked that. They were both very good on this song. I hope someone steals whoever Xtina doesn't keep. Excellent. Come on. Someone steal him!!!! That's too bad.

    granny hair yodeler vs some underwhelming duo
    finally, fodder used properly
    granny hair's styling is tragic from head to toe
    no brainer but that girl would be better off w/o her mom

    Grrrr. Nelly's had the best audition. I'm stunned he wasn't picked. Had the feeling Christina was going for De'Borah (?). She loves the underdog with a raw voice. But De'Bor(no clue) blew me away.

    Gracia should blow the mom/brat team away. I hope. :shuffle: But, knowing Blake, he'll do something stupid again.

    Yee Ha. Dixie Chicks and one of them even has dark hair. Gracia was a shoe in for Blake.

    This is...really country. I feel like I should be stringing lights on my doublewide and planning to key my cheatin' husband's truck and tie his momma to the railroad tracks.

    Gracia really needs to not be styled like Little Bo Peepshow.

    You've got to wait till she gets out of jail.

    I wonder how much Adam and Maroon 5 made selling Moves Like Jagger for that commercial.

    Since we already know both Amanda and Trevun are going through with the steal, it's just a matter of who goes with which coach. Trevun needs the most coaching to get him to believe in himself. Amanda is just fine with whoever she goes.

    vision of love with a lot of capable caterwauling
    i think the guy has more depth and warmth in his voice, i'd pick him so odds are decent that cee lo will pick the girl

    I wasn't impressed... thought both sounded really shrill, especially on the high notes.

    I don't think you can always tell by what you hear depending on your sound system. I suspect it sounds different in the auditorium.

    I love the Kia commercial with the rats.

    This song really works well as a duet. When Amanda hit that note, I got a shiver from the back of my leg, right up my back, straight to my head. I know that sounds corny, but it's true. DAMN. DAAAAMN.

    Why in the HELL did Amanda sing that HORRIBLE song in her auditions? I think CeeLo is genuinely pissed he pitted them against each other, and I love his honesty.

    Those were two great-to-great performances back-to-back. Old school country v. old school R&B. :respec:

    I think CeeLo will be a good coach for Trevun. Amanda will do fine with any of the other three as a coach. I think she'll go with Xtina. Just because I'd like to hear them do a duet together.

    ARRRGGGGHHHHH she went with Adam. Should have gone with Xtina.

    Oh definitely it would sound different in the auditorium. Though some other singers don't sound so shrill to me when I listen with the same sound system, same TV show...

    Different preferences. :p

    I like Gracia's "bashfullness" and would have picked Nelly over Deborah (sp?).
