    Amanda going back to her roots, that was ridonculously good! So glad she went to a natural song choice for her. That was awesome.

    I love that song, and I love her singing that song, but I like rock Amanda better. Her version of Paris was amazing. I think rock is more natural for her; that's clearly what she prefers when she chooses her own songs.

    Terry. Terry. Terry. So many good classic rock and you pick Foreigner. Sigh. Why not Lucky Man by David Lake?

    when the judges talk about cassiddee, i feel like there must be some other cassiddee that i keep missing

    now herman's hermit sounds like a wide assortment of wrong notes to me, like it's a struggle

    Listening to Terry is like really fantastic foreplay, but suddenly it ends, and you're like, ummm, where was the payoff for all that fabulous build up? And you kept going back again and again, and the payout just never comes...

    XTina's tossed her clout behind Blake.

    I sort of liked Amanda until she started SCREAMING.

    Not a fan of Terry's Foreigner cover. Totally not a fan of Cassaaddee's song.

    Poor Cee Lo. He must really sick if he subjected me to having to deal with the Train guy. :p

    So far, I like Nick out of all the finalists.

    ETA - what the hell did Cee Lo give Trevin to sing? :rofl: It's like a Bruno Mars bad dream up there. :scream:

    Nick and Trevin will go through. I fear Terry is toast unless his 2nd song is much better. Amanda or Melanie will probably be the other one out and given both Melanie and Cas a d have been on the itunes top 10 and get extra votes, they're probably safe meaning Amanda and Terry will be consoling one another.

    I think Melanie has much more commercial prospects than Cassadee. Whoh. Xtina gave a big Bless Your Heart to Melanie.

    Intellectually, I know that Trevin has the best voice, but there have been very few songs that he's song where I would be tempted to pick up a phone for him. Melanie is the exact opposite for me--I think she has the weakest voice of the contestants left, but I've actually downloaded one of her performances.

    And of course as I write this, Melanie goes way off-key and flat, which is almost voidy. I blame the blue hair; it's not working for me.

    I think I'm on drugs. Either that or Melanie's channeling Alice in Wonderland.

    Wow, it must have been REALLY bad live, because even Adam called her on it. The "it transcends technicality" is such a cop-out.

    Terry was way too high on that song. It was like watching one of the Chipmunks sing Rod Stewart.

    Terry looks especially like the love child of Michael Jackson and hobbit Sean Astin tonight.

    Xtina is having a moment. She must not have had one since Dez left.

    Xtina must be pretty hard up since Dev left. Trevin was amazing, and I was totally bored after the first twenty seconds. I'd rather listen to Cassadee and her I-can-be-cool-like-Melanie extensions sing Justin Bieber accompanied by cats being tortured.

    I want Amanda to sing Tina Turner so freaking bad it's killing me. I want to see her in some 80s version of the future badass costume singing Beyond Thunderdome and strutting for all she's worth.

    I really, really, really want Amanda to win. She has the vocal chops Melanie and Cassadee lack and the personality (in vocal performance, not any other time) Terry lacks. The universe owes me for Juliet, damnit.

    As an 80's chick who loved that freaking Whitesnake song, I give Amanda major :kickass: points. Not bad. But I was hoping for a car hood in the background rather than the Loverboy video pleather dance rejects. :p

    Who'd like to have a little Hobbit in them?

    I'm still betting Melanie will go through rather than Amanda. She's got a big fanbase. I'd rather it be Amanda than CasadE or Melanie, but I fear it won't be.

    Xtina and Melanie are going to have a bitchfight. Now, Xtina is schooling her on how to sing. :rofl: Melanie isn't buying.

    Gee, Melanie is only 17? Who knew? I had no idea that in the history of the world, there was never ever a singer younger than Melanie. (Just ignore Xtina sitting right there.)

    I really hate this song. I hate the staging even more. I agree with what Blake is trying to say: it should have worked, but didn't.

    Love Xtina calling Melanie out and I think those would have been great choices for her. I swear, she's just complimenting the stage manager to give her time to think of something nice to say.

    Melanie might be in trouble--her reactions have not earned her any favors (IMO) and she appears to take herself way too seriously.

    Cassadee is far too generic for me, but I have a real feeling that she's going to win

    Adam went off on Honey Boo Boo in an interview with GQ. He thinks the parents are idiots.

    was that ever in doubt? even if some people like the show, they must admit that the entire family looks like the cast of "the hills have eyes"

    I really liked her audition and her battle, but I've liked her less every week since. I think of all the great female singers that have been on this show, and we're left with Cassadee and Melanie, and it makes me mad. Or it would make me mad, if I cared about this season enough to get that emotional. I like that the Voice is willing to experiment with the format, but looking back on the season as a whole, I don't think it worked.

    Nick :swoon: he's like a fine glass of smooth whiskey. I just listen without watching. I love that song and that was an interesting arrangement.
