    Diamond was good, but I get that squicky feeling when 13 year olds sing about feeling the heat with somebody.

    Vino's song didn't have the right range for him, and he needs to stop wearing a jacket with shoulder pads because he looks like Quasimodo when he hunches over to sign and the shoulder pads poof up around his ears.

    Paige -- one of the best of the night. Definitely her best. She moved well, and seemed to find her pitch while moving better than she does when standing still.

    Carly Rose - a few pitch issues in the beginning in the low register, but then she did some really great things with the song. But I am sick of hearing people cover this, and I also got that squicky feeling about her singing such a mature song at 13.

    Fifth Harmony - a few pitchy moments - a little boring because they just stood on their platform. Not enough harmony.

    Tate - another good country vocal, I like him being upbeat. Don't think the dancing looked any worse than any country guy dancing.

    Cece - no, don't do something that we associate with 1) fierce Patti Labelle, and 2) fierce Xtina, Pink, Mya, Lil Kim. It failed by comparison. Pitchy. She had a hard time maintaining vocal control while moving around and she looked awkward.

    Emblem 3 -- I agreed with Demi, this was dull. They just flopped around. Singing not that good.

    Paige was boring but danced well, Tate was boring and chunky, Vino was scary and boring, Diamond and Carly both hurt my ears and were boring, 5th Harmony was extra boring, really disappointing how they just all sing together and do nothing original with any song.

    Cece was at least wildly entertaining because every other line is amazing and then the next line is horrible. I want her in the top 3 cause most of the other people bore the stuffing out of me. Emblem 3 did their job well enough- I can't believe Drew is so restricted by clothing that he has to tear it off as soon as the song is done, lolz. Works for me though. ;) They have a tendency to sound like howling dogs at times but Keaton does have a fairly nice voice and Drew entertains with the raps. These 2 acts need to stay or this show will be total dullsville.

    I predict Vino gets the dump straight away, and then a singoff between Diamond and Paige or maybe 5th Harmony.

    I loved Carly Rose and Cece. I don't like Paige, Tate, Vino or Diamond. I also don't like Emblem 3. They are like any other boy group and their is notring special about them or Fifth Harmony

    i thought diamond sounded like a terminally ill otter bellowing for one last bucket of fish. but i guess they think they can sell a tween before they can sell someone > 30 who is covered head to toe in prison tats.

    I'm absolutely disgusted with the X-Factor results tonight. There's no question who won that singoff. And the wrong one got saved. WHY wouldn't Simon let it go to the public vote???

    I thought this was Diamond's worst performance but her body of work has been much more enjoyable to me than Vino's. I really can't stand to look at Vino when he sings, he hunches over & gestures strangely with his arms. Plus all the ugly tattoos, the knit cap most of the time, & the strange drawn-on hair.

    IMO Diamond shouldn't even have been there....WHO is voting for Cece?

    Vote for the worst? With viewership and voting down, any semi organized group would have a good chance of tipping the scales.

    Eta, the VFTW site is crowing about how "CeCe was destroyed until VFTW made her our pick."

    That was Diamond's worst performance so far. Vino definitely sounded better, but I don't like his hunched over presentation either.

    I bet Diamond will be doing nothing but ballads since her two upbeat songs have landed her on the bottom.

    Looks like this is Carly's or Tate's -- they are 1-2 every week.

    I wouldn't mind Carly or Tate winning...they are the most consistant & both sound radio ready.

    CECE FOR THE WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :cheer: :cheer2:

    Because Simon knows Diamond has the potential to sell a decent amount of music while Vino will sell 10,000 copies and then be dropped from his label.

    So is that a YAY or a NAY??

    because when the dancers pushed her across the stage in that big luggage cart, i felt like bieber is an unappreciated genius

    and dont get on the cece bandwagon w haribobo, for whatever reason he only likes contestants w a psychosis, for him the singing is at best tertiary

    I'm not a country music fan but TATE FTW!! I have to listen to a country station whenever my husband & I are in the car together, and IMO Tate is as good as 99% of what I hear, plus he's so likable. Carly will be fine without the win. She already has a pretty impressive resume.

    Who's Buddy Jewell? Oh well, as long as he's not the next Randy Travis....his family wouldn't like that.

    How is this unplugged?

    Cece was really pitchy. Bad transition notes.

    First winner of Nashville Star (like a country American Idol) .. Miranda Lambert came in 3rd that year. Sometimes better not to win!

    Oh, that is why I don't know him. Coun'ry ain't my thang

    I don't know this Bieber song, but Carly is good. Only bad thing is the kiddies screaming so loud you can't hear her.

    Good gawd CeCe was horrendous in that 2nd number. :yikes:

    And did Simon (or was it Mario) say Emblem 3 boys were only 16?? I thought they were like 20. :wideeyes:

    At least 1 is 16. I thought they were older too.

    Cece dreadful as Katy Perry.

    Best of night were Carly and Diamond. Tate didnt make my ears bleed.

    emblem 3 sounded like some band that would greet you at disney. when i was a teacher, every girl in the choir was better than diamond. i dont get her appeal other than she seems polite.

    La is right, they sing unison most of the time, but there was some harmony in that one.

    Hmm ... I kinda liked both of Tate's performances tonight and think he should be first this week. Usually love Carly, but I didn't like her second performance (but I hate that song so maybe my view is tainted :lol:).

    Diamond a bit dull in the second one. In fact, all of them a bit dull, crappy audience picks.
