    I thought Caitlin seemed awful happy to be on Cee-lo's team considering that he thought Melanie won the battle :)

    Didn't she say during the blind audition shows that she wanted to be picked by CeeLo? Maybe I'm remembering someone else. But I do remember Blake saying he was normal and Caitlin saying that she was far from normal, so I'm not surprised she didn't choose Blake. Personally, I preferred her to the Cowardly Lion.

    I liked Nathalie, but she's too young to have a career doing the kind of music she's suited to do. I thought XTina was really good with her and it was a great learning experience.

    I think Melanie's look is bordering creepy. Kind of "Whatever Happened to Mary Jane"-ish.

    Do you mean Baby Jane? I didn't find her creepy or Baby Jane-ish but then I like her. I think it's just her way of setting herself apart. I like it better than multiple piercings or a bunch of tattoos.

    Oops, yes, I meant Baby Jane, lol. Watching Melanie during the rehearsal footage made me realized that I was looking at basically an adult woman dressing up like a baby doll. I thought it was a bit much when she skipped down the ramp into the ring for the singing battle; It reminded me of Jerry Springer's episodes about adults that wanted to be put in diapers and treated like babies.

    She's still in high school. But, yeah, her whole baby doll look is very contrived.

    Anyone watching tonight?

    Blake pits Mariachi guy up against the 'not taking any crap' soul singer. Mariachi wins, Cee Lo steals soul.

    Xtina pits pretty boy Des up with some scrub named Paulina. She's OTT affected. Hated her. She's got a voice that I'd rather be deaf than have to hear. :scream:

    Benji the screaming race car driver vs. some guy named Sam who manages a bar - he didn't get a fluff segment. Guess there's no broken glasses in his past? :lol: Mary J. is still rocking the same librarian outfit.

    Sam is dead to me, he's not a 'Bon Jovi kind of guy'. :p And Benji loves to scream. Adam tells them that Bon Jovi is a deceptively great singer - and one hell of a :kickass: live band...

    Blake needs to start listening to something other than hayseed country.

    Conga Belter is a better singer, but she's so sharp it's almost like she sang half the song in the wrong key.

    I agree that Julio put the most work, but if you put that much work in it, and you still don't measure up...

    So glad that Benji is gone. He's such a douche to me.

    Happy Benji got booted too.

    I'd give the battle of the ugly man hair to Jesus. Love his voice more than the other one. But they were friends! :( It's like watching puppies get separated!

    Todd looks like Bradley Cooper's special cousin. :shuffle:

    I guess Xtina educated Blake on who Florence + the Machine is, because he clearly had no idea during the auditions.

    Susanna was my favorite from the auditions, and so far she still is.

    There is one good thing going on tonight - the affected female singers are getting booted. :cheer2:

    Not a fan of Egypt. And no clue who the other one is. I must have zoned out. I found a fridge break team. But, I'm on a diet. :shuffle:

    I hope they style Susanna better for the actual show--she dresses like the slutty one in a Mennonite community.

    that Mennonite girl has issues.. I have diagnosed her as bi-polar and hope she gets the help she needs - the girl is all over the place emotionally... but I agree about Susanna and styling :lol:

    I'm in the minority, but I'm waaay more impressed with these two girls than in the auditions--I thought it would be a throwaway battle, but I really liked both.

    I'd go with Egypt over Sweet Smile. You'd see Egypt coming, but Sweet Smile would have that knife in your back before you could say "bless your heart, aren't you sweet."

    I hate multi-note divas so that was a bore for me. I might even confess to hitting the mute button. :shuffle: Surprised Adam took the loser. Xtina still has both of her steals.
