    Shakira was pregnant when they taped this. Her baby was born in January. She looks really good to be 5 months pregnant.

    I love Adam Levine. He makes me laugh every week.

    He's also got a strong voice too, this guy is going to be one hell of a force to be reckoned with

    ETA - or not, I hope the steal option is there, because Adam has a ridonculous amount of talent.

    no no no no!!!! Liz Lemon is awesome as is. What makes this show work is NOT making people look like everyone else.

    Nice touch having her audition followed by the quintessential packaged singer. Whose voice I kinda like, but not crazy about having someone who already had a gold record get a shot on the show. ooooh, Blake knows her....awkward.

    Loving Shakira as a judge. Especially now that she's not turning her chair for everyone. She's got sass.

    Have they said yet whether they're having steals this season?

    Adam is such a great salesman. I can't believe he nabbed the firefighter. I have to say, I'm not sure it was the best choice for hte firefighter because Blake really does do a lot for his singers, especially the country ones. Plus, Adam's team is already really strong. But that guy is good enough that he'll have a country career regardless of which team he's on.

    I liked the geek. I'll be curious to see what Usher does with her. I really thought she'd go with Adam. I'm glad Adam didn't get all the good ones.

    ITA. Especially when Blake started the theme with the wonderful country singer who attends Baylor about starting to sing in church. Adam said,"I too started singing in church, the Jewish church!" :rofl:

    I like model girl just because she snarked at Adam. And then she totally dissed Blake. :lol:

    Rocker boy has a great attitude. I love watching the families backstage.

    Adam is really a nice guy. I always feel sorry for the ones who don't get a chair turn.

    I thought model girl came off a bit too precious. "I'm so pretty, I want to be taken seriously for something other than my looks". Oh go throw up someplace.

    Meatloaf wannabe was pretty interesting. I'm starting to like Team Shakira. Can we bring her back next year?

    Adam seems happier this year without Christina snarking at him.

    Betsy tried too much to be like Adele and it didn't work, far too much inconsistency, give it one more year and then she could be great.

    I'm going to hate for more good singers to go with Adam. The battle rounds will be brutal for his team. He needs some more cannon fodder.

    Cannon fodder like those poor guys they cut from the performance shows. :lol:

    The singers are just a bonus. The judges just crack me up. :rofl: :rofl:

    Loved dreads guy. I want more rockers. I also am trying to think who he reminds me of.

    Her voice was very similar to Joy Williams, from The Civil Wars, so Safe and Sound was the perfect choice for her to sing. I think she could win this year.

    I really liked the young girl, her voice is unique and she has a unique look to match her interesting voice.. I think a good fit with Blake

    The lead singer of the (mostly) fictional band "The Commitments"? He didn't have dreads, but he had a similar look and voice.

    Agreed, they all really seem to play well off of each other. Usher I think is replaceable, he's a huge star, but I haven't seen him offer all that much in terms of feedback, etc. Shakira is awesome, but it's playful banter, not the persnickety stuff I've seen in the past. They're making it fun to watch.

    Really liked that last girl. She had a unique, interesting voice and wasn't just showing how powerful her voice was.

    Shakira is likeable, but she has not been a very effective saleswoman. It will be interesting to see how she and Usher are when it comes time to mentor and critique.

    Adam's team is turning out to be the best so far. I kind of laugh anytime he or Blake try to sell the other coaches :lol:

    I think she is at a big disadvantage since she is new, and Usher has Justin Bieber to throw around.

    Dreads guy reminded me of Val Kilmer....but I can see the Jeff Bridges comparison too.

    Last girl had a fab and interesting voice, sounded very controlled and mature for a 17 year old.

    The dude Usher turned for at the last second...you could practically see the thought bubble above his head before pushing the button: "cannon fodder"

    When Adam tells someone "You totally deserve to be here" - DRINK!
    When Shakira encounters a latina - DRINK! Half drink if it's a latino
    When Usher gets up and busts a dance move - DRINK!
    When Blake mentions Miranda - DRINK! Drink twice if the singer mentions Miranda first

    Shakira is a sweet woman, but her personality isn't strong enough to counter the three guys. I think her somewhat limited English is really hampering her ability to sale herself to the contestants.

    I thought the gymnast girl's voice was on the thin, screechy side.

    I felt bad for Julie Roberts, but I didn't like her singing.

    Adam and Blake are cute together. Just make out already, why don't ya!

    The two new hosts, Shakira and Usher, seem so much more into it than Christina and Cee Lo last year. Great show, I think it's way better than Idol.

    I'm watching. Maybe everyone else is watching basketball?

    Usher-guy didn't speak to me at all.

    I wouldn't have turned for Shawna P., and I really don't understand why Caroline Glaser (Tiny Dancer) got two chair turns. That pitch went all over the place, and if she'd been an ice dancer her timing mark would have been terrible.

    Are they just thinking, "what the heck I only have a couple of slots left to fill"? Tonight there have been some half hearted turns. Or I may be imagining it.

    Mostly cannon fodder tonight except Sasha. Bluntry girl from Memphis could have been awesome if she'd done Bonnie Raitt and not that affected crap she sang. Hopefully, Blake will set her right in the battle rounds or she's history. Adam should have 6 to get rid of and 6 amazing singers to take to the live shows. I really hope the steal will be a part of this season.

    Unless your name is Darren Criss, a guy should NEVER try to sing Teenage Dream. :eek:

    Loved that pop girl in the red dress (I can't remember her name) and I'm glad she went with Adam. He's got a fantastic team! :cheer:
