    Just catching up on DVR. Blake was sweating trying to keep up with Shakira .. she *rocked* that duet!

    ETA: the Shakira part of the duet won the night for me.

    Enjoyed Karina and Danielle (love love that Pam Tillis song) .. even Justin and Swon Bros. But Sasha is in a league of her own. What she did with Oh Darlin' and her solos in We are the Champions .. whoa, lots of goosebumps.

    Since I surprisingly liked Danielle's performance, I looked up the original on youtube. Holy crap, that is a great freaking song. Pam Tillis' voice is amazing. I watched some others by her and ummm...no...still not a fan of country music, but damn that one song is fantastic(shake the sugar tree? really?). I've got it on iTunes now. Maybe that's Blake's evillle purpose all around, to try to convert innocent ears to country. Though that's the only one that would do it. I won't be fishing in the dark anytime soon. Having a night of in Memphis in the summer? THAT I would do.

    I particularly love this stanza:
    Read about you in a Faulkner novel
    Met you once in a Williams play
    Heard about you in a country love song
    Summer nights beauty took my breath away

    Pam Tillis is Mel Tillis' daughter. He was a country music icon.

    Safe Team Blake: Holly Tucker and Danielle. Blake will have to choose between the boys and he goes with (I think he thought one of them would be saved and it would be Holly he'd choose), so he goes with the Swons. I want them to sing Montgomery Gentry next round. Hot Swon could make lots of new fans if they did.

    Rod may hurt himself if he keeps trying to bust a move.

    I have to wonder if it was Blake's plan all along to sabotage Justin and the Swon Brothers given the very weak song choices he gave them to perform. Neither song choice gave the guys the opportunity to showcase their vocal strength. It's really hard to swallow though that Justin got the ax because he is the best singer of all 3 of those guys. He's a friggin' Grammy nominee for goodness sake. Blake is a buffoon! *shaking my head*

    Really? I think Justin is the best looking, but he's lucky to even be there. All of Shakira's team and most of Adam's team could cream him. At least the Swon Brothers are entertaining.

    Blake's pretty crafty--he picks one or two singers he thinks will win from the audition round and does everything he can to get them in position to win. The other judges kind of waffle towards the end and gives everyone a more or less equal chance. Blake considers it a competition among the judges and plays it that way.

    That good ole boy charm is good at getting votes too because he I think was the first to realize in this format where a judge can be teamless, voters go for the judge as much as the voices. But I think Shakira might be a bit of a challenge for the likeability vote though.

    Juliet Great that CeeLo is supporting her career. Is she touring with him? They are awesome together.

    Team Shakira: This one will be difficult. I'd lose Kris if it were my choice.
    First save: Sasha
    Second: Kris Whoa. That's a surprise
    She'll save Karina surely. And she goes with ..she says she picked the name to save out of a hat...and it is Garrett. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO : She says she can improve him because Karina is already good.

    well, there goes one of my final four What do I know. OK, now one of Blake's girls can be in the final four.

    I'm surprised Blake gave Justin the boot, but not because I think Justin is a good singer. I just thought Justin wouldn't be an option and Blake would be choosing between Holly and the Swon Brothers.

    Juliet Stupid cold of hers--she should have won

    I think she's had some vocal lessons; she sounds smoother and more in control. She was keeping up with CeeLo.

    Seriously? I missed Monday and Tuesday but there is no planet in which Garrett outsings Karina. I have to figure Shakira is being strategic too and her money is on Sasha.

    I expected it to be Karina and Kris in the bottom, with Shakira booting Kris. I knew she'd keep Garrett.

    There's a very high school choir sound to this.

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    I'm not surprised Shakira stuck with Garrett. She seems stuck on him, and she doesn't seem to like Karina's taste in music. It really stinks, though. I definitely would have sent Garrett packing.

    Have you ever heard 8 people sing anything that didn't sound like a high school choir?

    Team Usher: I want Josiah to go through, but won't be surprised if he doesn't. Cathia--don't care one way or the other but I don't think he'll save her a 2nd time. Veto and Michelle should be the audience saves which means Josiah might get lucky.

    Nailed it. Now Usher just go with pretty boy. Yes. He's my Dez this season.

    No, I think Shakira is just soft on Garrett.

    Back on topic, still have a soft spot for Rod Stewart. Cee-lo & Juliet are fabulous!

    I suspect that Adam is going last because Judith is in the bottom two. I will be seriousl bummed if both Judith and Karina go tonight.

    Caroline has to go unless the audience saved her in which case, I don't know who Adam will sacrifice of Sarah, Judith and Amber.
    Audience save: Judith, Amber (unexpected)
    He'll send Caroline away but I wouldn't cry if it were Sarah. Adam saves Sarah as the credits are rolling, the producers are screaming and Carson is sweating.

    I pretty much think America got it right for Blake, Adam, and Usher's team. I have no idea what happened with Shakira's team.

    Why is the Amber save unexpected? I thought that she was the frontrunner on Adam's team.

    Absolutely crushed over losing Justin and Caroline; they were definitely 2 of my favorites. I guess my allegiance now falls to Judith and Garrett. I like Michelle too; she's so likeable, fresh, and unique.
