    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.

    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

    Melanie is like Drew from last season's X-Factor. Same interpretation of every song. Why doesn't any judge point it out like LA Reid did to Drew?

    i felt like drew had the capacity to let go now and then and change up her delivery. she just chose not too. i dont think melanie can do any more than what she does. plus the voice judges are nicer.

    It doesn't matter to me that Melanie isn't that versatile. I think she does what she does well. Ditto for Nick.

    I don't see what's special about Cassadee at all. There are plenty of girls out there with daddy issues. Some of them sing better than she does and have more artistry. But, for reasons that escape me, she's apparently the frontrunner.

    I'm guessing that Trevyn and Terry are the ones going home tomorrow.

    I'm sure tonight will yield some terrible results cause The Voice voting audience is the most wack of all these shows.

    1. Cassadee- giving her the win because it was a great job from top to bottom and I love Michelle Branch and she just totally pulled it off for me. She is playing this so right and her interviews are genuine and she comes off so much more likeable than most of the others. I don't think her voice is *that* crazy good but she's so versatile and it's good enough to win this.
    2. Terry- man, what a gorgeous voice he has. I bet he gets dumped tonight, cause this show hates me. It was a truly lovely performance for him, for me. For all of us! :)
    3. Amanda- sound great but sorta think she could get the boot for early start order and the overdone song choice
    4. Nicholas- sounded heavenly, but I actually nodded off during his song, which speaks to how entertaining I find him
    5. Dez- I kinda enjoyed it, but from the rehearsals I thought I would love it, and then the background was so loud and clangy I couldn't appreciate his singing much, he's kind of robotic when he talks, no?
    6. Melanie- She is kinda good and I do get the appeal, but if she had to compete with any substantial background she would completely disappear. So its a bit not fair that every week she gets to do stripped down arrangements. I'm losing interest. The original version/singer of this song is so awesome it's hard to compare.
    7. Cody- he's just good-ish karaoke and nothing more, not impressed, sorry. Still, he will likely make it through again this week as he has a good personality and picks good songs. Elliott Yamin is the singing comp boss of this song always and forever.
    8. Trevin- I am so over him and his crying and sweating and awful song choices. He sings very well but I can't take it anymore.

    Let's just dump four tonight. I know the results are going to suck so we may as well move this thing along.

    Dia did win on iTunes several times, but the rule about multiplying the votes for being in the top 10 on iTunes did not exist at that point.

    ITA to all - as good as the last couple of weeks were, this was mostly ZZZZZZzzzzzzz. In fact, I didn't make it all the way through Trevan's song and turned it off - I will have to watch Nick and Casssssaaaaaaadddddeeeeee tonight. The only entertaining ones were Cody and Melanie so far. Right now, Nick or Melanie should win IMO.

    I like Cody & I think he is entertaining & has a good voice but I'm not sure he fits into the pop scene. He seems like a Vegas performer to me. Terry started strong in this comp but he has limited himself by his song choices...he doesn't seem relevant or current to me, & I thought he was boring last night. Nick has performed all oldies too but it's not the same...he has so much soul in his voice that he just blows me away. And if Ceelo has a thriving career, why not Nick? Ceelo is as unattractive as Nick & that hasn't held him back.

    Amanda irritates me for some reason and both she & Cassadee just don't seem good enough. I still wish Nicole was in this & it still annoys me that Adam threw her away for that mediocre prom queen who had one semi-good performance. Trevan's voice is fantastic but he would be much better for some training, better song choices, & a little more time. Dez - pretty face but too much lipstick - mediocre voice & also doesn't seem relevant to the current scene. I like Melanie a lot...I think she's could be a teen star if handled right.

    Conclusion - if the winner is based on who has the best voice, performs the best, and is best at knowing who he/she is musically, I think Nick should win which is a huge turnaround for me as I thought no one would vote for him based on his looks. But I've voted for him every week since they went to the live shows. If Nicole was still in this I think I would be saying these things about her, plus she was very pretty. But with the current line-up I would rank them Nick, Melanie, Cody in how I think they should finish. If Terry doesn't go home tonight & comes out strong next week he could turn it around - he's got a great voice.

    Nick's hair tonight scares me. It's a top knot I think? :scream:

    Cassaaddee saved first. Now she can go hang in the skybox and act surprised.

    it looks like he is planning on running back stage for a queen helene mud mask
