    I love Dia and was never a big fan of Javier, but the studio version of "Stitch By Stitch" is gorgeous.

    On the strength of the season, I'd say Vicci.
    On the strength of tonight, I'd say......Vicci.

    I'm hoping one of the girls takes it. I voted for Bev, but it's a really tough call.

    I haven't seen the show yet, but ITA about the Stitch by Stitch recording. I know a lot of people in the other thread thought it boring, but it really sounds good in the recording.

    Most of the other recorded original songs don't do much for me. Dia's has some weird vocal runs that I don't like. I can see how Bev's song would be great live, but I find the chorus rather lame in the recording. And Vicci's seems pretty weak overall.

    I want Bev to win. I won't be disappointed if someone else does.

    Yes.

    I'm just going for a 4-way tie. And planning on following the tour around the country. MLP and I can be voiceheads.

    Damn... I was in the middle of voting when someone had the audacity to interrupt me for something work related. I got the online votes in, but only 5 of the phone votes before the lines closed.

    Based on last night, I would say Bev.

    Based on potential and overal, I would say Dia.

    I don't know who I want to win. I ended up putting votes in for both Dia and Bev in my online votes and then threw in a couple of votes for Vicci on the phone votes. :lol: (Even the ITunes version of Stitch by Stich didn't do much for me.) I didn't think Vicci did that well last week, but she was really good last night. Bev was great, too. I didn't think Dia was her best last night, but overall this season, she may have been the best. I think Javier is talented. His vocals just don't do much for me. I think his strongest performance might have been at the beginning with Time After Time.

    I was curious about the tour. They are coming to Boston, but the LiveNation service fee is 40% of the ticket price. No way, Jose.

    and here I thought I was being all slick :p

    re: the tour...wow I thought I had missed most of the dates as they did the scroll last night, but it really is only going to a handful of cities. And not Seattle :( I wonder if they might add some dates if ticket sales pick up?

    MJs got the final ITunes listings at the time voting closed. Each sale counts for only one vote and it's not necessarily reflective of the online and phone vote results, but should give us a pretty good idea of the voting.

    1. Inventing Shadows – Dia Frampton
    3. Stitch By Stitch – Javier Colon
    6. Moves Like Jagger [feat. Christina Aguilera] – Maroon 5
    12. Man in The Mirror – Javier & Adam
    13. Honey Bee – Blake Shelton
    14. Afraid to Sleep – Vicci Martinez
    15. I Won’t Back Down – Dia & Blake
    19. Beautiful – Beverly & Christina
    35. Lovesick – Beverly McClellan
    39. Losing My Religion (The Voice Performance) – Dia Frampton
    42. Love is a Battlefield – Vicci & Cee Lo
    48. Heartless – Dia Frampton
    54. Fix You – Javier Colon
    81. Dog Days Are Over – Vicci Martinez
    86. Time After Time – Javier Colon

    Overall, I think Blake won.

    There's only 6 stops for the tour and none are near me. :wuzrobbed


    Between The Voice and the Sing Off, NBC wins my entertainment reality viewership. :cheer2: Cowell is really going to have to have something spectacular for me to give up my Ben Folds drooling time.

    I think Dia will win because her sound and style is timely. But I split my votes between Vicci and Bev because of their performance abilities. But for just Voice -- Javier. Any of them could win and I will still be happy.

    Train is touring with Maroon 5. That explains Pat M. Vicci certainly held her own with him. Cee-lo pontificating.

    Vicci and Pat Moynahan from Train.

    That was a brilliant duet between Javiar and Stevie.
