    Good chance that Adam, Blake or Xtina will be out of singers tonight
    Xtina has only Dez (BLUE EYE SHADOW) and a Helgesson hair bump
    Blake has Cassaddeeeeeee and Terry
    Adam has Melanie and Amanda
    CeeLo has 3 so he's assured of making the finals with at least one singer.

    First up is Amanda. With Someone Like You. I liked it. Adam changed it up and make it more "rock" than the Adele version.

    I don't get the Amanda love. Compared to karaoke fluff like Dez, I understand, but I don't like screamy vocalists.

    Speaking of screamy, I downloaded Lotus this weekend - love a lot of it, skipped a few. Lots of empowered 'bite me' songs with a beat. :lol:

    You just want somebody other than Dez to leave tonight. I know it's because you don't want Xtina to be left alone.

    Cody singing Somebody to Love. I love him. I don't care if anybody else does. I'd go see him live.

    Loved Cody - so glad he covered a Queen song. :respec: And Cee Lo got me all sniffly tonight with his "I found a friend" comment to him. :)

    herman's hermit sounds like he should be good but when he gets to where i expect a big note, it is never as big as i would want it. and unlike heidi doody, he doesnt rearrange it for his limitations

    Adam always makes me laugh.

    I like Terry singing something other than classic rock. He needs really good original material. I don't think he'll win this season, but maybe he can tour with Blake and get a career boost.

    Xtina sort of damns with faint praise. :lol: She like the staging better than Melanie. I think Melanie can make a great teen star with the right material.

    I like this song (Melanie's.) I've been wishing someone would do it. I actually wanted Jermaine or Tony to do it last season.

    hehehehehehe Dez is singing the Bieb. Xtina so wants to do him. The good thing about singing a Beiber song is that the original sucks so you can't be worse than the original and might be better.

    I don't know a lot about football but compared to the players I've seen Dez seems a little...petite. I can't picture it.

    Ares, it was an Ivy and he was the QB. He's built more like the punter, but...

    Dez doing Buble doing Beiber? It's like Beible. You sing, I mute. :p

    I'm here for Dez, not gonna lie. You can tell Christina's really helping him, he's grown leaps and bounds from when he first started.

    Trevin's a great singer but Cee-Lo gives him the most boring song choices.

    Trevin is so talented, but he's also so young. I get why CeeLo gave him back the ballad since his votes may have been low last week, but he needs something to really put him over the top.

    And he certainly has the voice for it (unlike some Idol contestants :scream:)

    Christina Milan makes Brooke Burke Charvet look like a brain surgeon.

    I have a feeling he might be the one in real jeopardy this week. He needed a big moment like you said, and tonight was just underwhelming.

    Nick is rapidly becoming my favorite singer. They are doing serious makeovers to make him more than just radio friendly. They brought in Bill Withers to mentor. Excellent. He's so smooth. and rocking his inner Leon Russel tonight.

    Nick looks like Pollyanna's younger crackhead brother. Guess the sunglasses interfered with his keyboard playing. But, of what I've heard tonight, I'd download his song.

    And I liked Trevin's. It did get a bit mush mouthed with the middle vocals. Tough to figure out words if you didn't know it.

    Crazy uncle Blake. Who hangs around the schoolyard with a shotgun. :p

    Cassaddee and her prop guitar get the pimp spotlight song. It's like a Miss America pageant for wanna be rockers.

    If Casadee makes the top 10 on itunes again, she'll win the whole thing because she gets extra points.

    I really can't predict who'll be the bottom two this time.

    Amanda - meh
    Cody - I loved Freddy Mercury & I think Cody did the song justice
    Terry - meh
    Melanie - I will probably download this, thought this was really really good
    Dez - my ears, my ears! thank God for FF
    Trevan - completely boring, plus was he in a race?
    Nick - I love his voice & I love this song, but I wasn't crazy about the arrangement, I voted for him anyway
    Cassadee - meh
