    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.

    Just bought Nick's "Over the Rainbow". That was sublime.

    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.

    I'm about 1/2 hr behind the live show and Melanie is ruining The Show. Love the song but it's supposed to be sung tongue in cheek by someone with crappy life experience NOT the Sesame Street version. Geez.

    PML I love Blake Shelton. I'm dying at his opening number on his Xmas special.

    When Melanie was 17, she had a bow and the leftovers of Katy Perry's smurf dye.

    When Xtina was a 17, she was serenading you on pitch with a range of over an octave to rub her the right way.

    Being on the Voice has really brought out Blake's natural comedic timing. He's really funny. And Kelly does look great.

    My rankings...

    1. Amanda- Here I Go Again and Trevin- And I'm Telling you I'm Not Going
    3. Cassadee- I'm With You
    4. Terry- I Want to Know What Love Is
    5. Amanda- Natural Woman
    6. Nicholas- Over the Rainbow
    7. Cassadee- Stand
    8. Terry- Stay With Me
    9. Melanie- Crazy, The Show
    11. Trevin- Walking on Sunshine, Nick- September

    So I'd give Amanda the win for the night and Cassadee 2nd. It's tough for the rest because Trevin was just treacle on the first song and amazing on the 2nd, same for Nick but I didn't think his 2nd was really that amazing. Terry's 2nd song was actually a little dull (compared to Skylar from Idol especially) and could send him home. The first for him was really nicely done. Melanie gets the award for most fun looking contestant of the night, but she really has to go now. For her "changing it up" is doing the exact same thing to every song, and tonight was probably her worst on the show so hopefully the votes reflect that....although I have enjoyed her at times in the past quite a bit. CeeLo sure picked some stinkers for his singers tonight- its as if he's trying to get them voted off! Adam looked really sexy. I'd like 5 minutes of the show reserved for Xtina sings Fiona Apple next week...

    To me Nick won the night because both of his performances were really good. IMO you can't say the same of anyone else. But Ceelo could have picked a better song for him. That was the problem of a lot of tonight's songs.

    I didn't like either of Cassaddee's. She bores me.

    There is something about Amanda that really rubs me the wrong way. It's more than confidence, it's more like hubris. That said, she is really good although I didn't like her 2nd performance.

    Blake's pick for Terry was better than his own pick. Both songs are a little over-used but I really liked his 2nd performance.

    Was Ceelo out of his mind? Walking On Sunshine for Trevin? To start with it's a crappy song, it's really old, & it doesn't suit him. Trevin sang the 2nd song beautifully.

    I liked Melanie's pick for herself but I think it was an epic fail on Adam's part to give her "The Show" which didn't suit her voice & then to arrange it in a peppy way which is not her & then to allow that horrible staging. I couldn't believe Christina actually complimented the staging that would have better suited some kid's show.

    Yeah, there's the Cassadee who is getting tons of votes and Itunes downloads. XTina will look smart jumping on that bandwagon now because Cassadee is likely to win. Plus, Cassadee is the most pop of the remaining contestants.

    Her singing bores me until she goes for the power and then she makes me cringe.

    I guess this show is not about the 'voice' anymore. It's about who is the most current and popular. I don't see her having the same success as Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood, more like Kris Allen.

    My ranks so far. I have only seen the first songs.

    1. Amanda did come on strong with Natural Woman.

    2. I liked Nick's September.

    3. Trevin sounded good in Walking on Sunshine.

    4. Didn't know Casssssaaaaaaddddddeeeeeee's first song so I don't know what she did to it, but I didn't really like it or think it showed her strengths. She didn't sound bad though.

    5. Terry, He sounded uncharacteristically strained and a little squeaky, his best was when the harmonies came in.

    6. Melanie - sheesh what was that? It was painful.

    No. 3 Casadeeeeeeeee

    This means we lose Nick or Amanda or both if Melanie makes it through. :wuzrobbed This will be sad no matter what happens.

    These impressions are too funny. The Cee Lo ones were pretty dead on though.

    And here's saved number three.....

    Cassadee.

    Um, I'm not feeling Nicholas's part of Criminal at all...he's well, shouting most of it. I love Melanie's interpretation though...

    Melanie singing the song xtina requested last night. Was that a death stare toward xtina after the line "I've been a bad bad girl"?

    Melanie out. Better her than Amanda or Nick, but I don't want either of them to go. :(

    I think Melanie will do very well if she gets signed and gets the right material. Maroon 5 should let her tour with them.

    Thank Goodness!!

    I wonder how much was how horrid she was last night, the way she acted towards Christina or a combination of both. I never got the fuss w/her, but the way she acted last night would have turned me off if I had been supporting her.

    Xtina won't pick
    Blake says Nick
    CeeLo loves Nick unconditionally and is in his corner
    Adam says he's at peace and this is a small sprint in a massive marathon of life. Adam the philosopher.

    And the last spot goes to.....Nick :cheer2:

    Amanda :wuzrobbed

    That's bittersweet.
