    My wish came true. I'm sure she'll go back to being the "Lady Gaga of Japan" again. :rolleyes:

    Cody listened to CeeLo. Domo was....Domo.

    It's not Rob Thomas's voice that annoys me. I agree, he's a great singer, but his lyrics are so whiny. He should have gotten over wanna-be emo kidling a decade ago.

    Aww, I like both of these singers. I'll probably be wrong, but I'm pretty sure for Xtina, Hernandez is fodder, and I think for Blake, she would have been an actual player.

    I'm bummed, I saw the song choices on iTunes a little while ago and thought it was going to be Jamiroquai's "You Give me Something" instead :shuffle:

    The steal makes a strategic difference this season. In the past, the two "battlers" had to really compete against each other and out sing the other. Now, I think the advantage is to really work together to make the entire performance outstanding because you have a chance of staying in if the other judges like the whole package.

    Nathalie has a Rita Coolidge sound to her voice.

    Hernandez's stockings were not a good idea. She might have been better served waiting a few years before trying out.

    I love Hernandez, but I'd go with Aquille. I'm not sure the song did either justice, but Aquille has better presence to pull it off.

    "When I was 15 I was a zit" :rofl:

    Natalie was trying too hard.

    And Xtina needs to get rid of that dress. What the heck is on the crotch area? A tail?

    Xtina has a plethora of teen pop singers. She's wheedling them down to her select few. Nathalie has a very good voice and she really learned from Xtina. I hope the show will give her a good boost. I'd like to see how good she will be in a couple of years.

    I'd totally match similar abilities. It's also While I get that each coach has a certain sound they like/can work with, there are lots of variations within each genre. You don't need two people that can sing sad songs well. You don't need two belters. They'd split the vote. You want the belter on your team to go against the belter on someone else's. It would be a shame if in a season the best singer lost because there were too many other contestants that were too similar...especially on your team!

    I missed Celica? :fragile: I want to see ALL the battle rounds, damnit. Isn't that the point of a larger team? MORE BATTLE! MORE JUDGE BANTER! :mitchell: WOW. Meatloaf made it! :respec: and :rofl:

    Picket fence vs. Katy Stage Fright.

    Mary J woke up, said 3 words and is now back to being a librarian.

    Adam said pitchy. PML how can it be a shocking outcome when we know one of them gets the steal?

    Melanie looks like the Cowardly Lion. I hope Scary Katy lands a singing house on her.

    I didn't know Xtina had so many.. and yes I guess it does make sense to match similar abilities - just seems a shame when one doesn't go through..

    :lol:

    I think he put them against each other because of the dual color hair. But it looks like whoever loses gets the chance to be the new Blake quirky singer or Cee Lo objectified girl.

    I hate that breathy vocal stuff. But I also am not a fan of Florence Lite.

    Is anyone else bothered by CeeLo's cap basically saying white Power? Is he trying to be ironic, or was he just not thinking?

    Melanie looks like she wandered off the set of Little Orphan Lion Cub. I'll bet Caitlin would make a Goth coat out of it.

    Snarking aside, their voices sound really good together. GREAT match up, vocally.

    ETA: I have to say, I liked that better than the original.

    Oh come on, Blake, Catelyn is very Florence + The Machine, don't try to say she's not like anyone else.

    I would rather listen to either of them singing this song more than Ellie Golding

    If Adam didn't want them off his team, why did he pair them?

    My guess is that he thought Scary katie would choke. You could tell in the rehersal footage he was a little disappointed in both of them, but they pulled it off in the end.

    I once again agreed with all the judges' decisions (except for the Celica one since we didn't really hear it...Celica - isn't that a car?) Either I'm getting better or the judges are. And I'm so glad Snookie wannabe is gone...she was totally classless. Love that the grandpa went through....I thought he might be fodder but he totally outsang the other guy.
