    I'd like to hear some Nirvana. But, I think the 16 yo was just average and nothing special. She didn't have the rock edge. Blue hair is just blue hair.

    She has a very nice voice, but the performance didn't seem to go anywhere.

    I do feel sorry for the ones nobody turns around for. CeeLo makes a good point about sounding too much like the original which means people expect the original. Malford would have done better to have changed it up some.

    And we just let a hottie go by!!!!! Noooooooooo... stupid blind audition. :lol:

    It is sad especially when they show the family.


    Meh at the one girl singing "Girl on Fire". Christina doesn't seem to be trying that hard to get her.

    alicia keys songs are the vocal equivalent of swimming upstream, they just sound like a lot of effort

    15 yo was really good and she needs to go with Xtina. She's got the power and Xtina will help her.

    Agreed. She needs some finesse and control. She also is very pretty, definite commercial potential.

    I agreed with Xtina about Monica. That wasn't nearly as good as the boys were pretending. Blake will dump her in the battle round.

    And now Kelly Cuoco's sister. Won't this be embarrassing if nobody turns. :watch: She picked a terrible song to audition with. She should go with CeeLo. Xtina has too many strong singers. I think she made a 2nd mistake. Xtina will keep the kid and dump her.

    edited to add: Oh dear, this is not starting well. :yikes: I hope it improves.

    Me too. And again, I'm not sure Christina was really fighting for her. Or Cee Lo for that matter.

    She'll be toast in the battle round.

    At least George boyband ripoff is cute.

    Texas "Electric Feel" guy was my favorite of the night. I also liked the 1st audition - Louisiana guy who sang "Use Me" (one of my favorite songs ever). And I also liked Romanian George - not necessarily for his voice. ;)

    I wanted to like Briana Cuoco but she was about as nervous as any contestant I've ever heard & her voice quavered a lot. Plus that song is terrible for an audition. She was almost done before I realized that she has a really good voice. I doubt Christina will be able to help her - she'll probably use her as fodder. But I think she had the most pressure on her than any of the others. It's not only that she has a famous sister - she has a famous younger sister.

    So far, there have been lots of good voices, but very few performers. There's a huge difference between gigging sitting on a bar stool in a 100 seat place and commanding a bigger venue.

    That's where the battle rounds will help separate the "fodder" from the contenders.
    Can they command a room?

    I note that there are several team members that have only been mentioned "in passing".
    I wonder how many of the "contenders" are in that group?

    I could do with seeing more auditions of people who actually made the teams, and shorter packages in general. It would also be a lot fairer, since people whose auditions aren't really shown really start out at a disadvantage when it comes time for live voting.

    Unless they know they're being eliminated in the battle rounds. Remember those have already happened so the editors know. I'm trying to remember if any singer not shown in the blind audition ever makes it through the battle round.

    So you want someone with "The X-Factor" as opposed to "The Voice"?

    It takes someone who has the requisite ability; and command of the audience to have long-term success, IMO.
    I believe that's one reason why so few winners of these "reality' competitions really make a career after their contracts end.

    Based on some of last night's turns, I can't believe it took so long for someone to turn for the first guy.

    I liked cruise singer. She should go with CeeLo. She could work with Xtina, but I think CeeLo is her coach. She went with Xtina. Think that was a mistake on her part, but she can sing.

    I didn't get the turn for the wedding singer with the sad story. I think he's battle fodder.

    That wedding singer has quite a sad story. I found myself hoping he would get a turn based on the story. :yikes: That's why I hate the backstory.
