    Her voice is so silky when she's not screaming out the high notes. But yeah, Blake??!

    IMO, she was better than a bunch of people who have been chosen. I think the song choice was a mistake. I'll bet none of the judges were expecting a 17 year-old. Next time, she needs to pick a song that makes her seem more contemporary.

    Overall, I think there was quite a bit of fodder chosen tonight. But, there are some interesting pairings. I think Shakira might work well for Clarissa. Melissa and Usher are an interesting mix. So are Blake and Sisaundra. I can't see the twins and Usher together at all. That will be very interesting.

    As I saw it, she's a woman with a plan to be able to work regularly, but on her terms. I think she already knows that she's not the type that wins this sort of show. She has enough industry contacts already that she doesn't need Usher to introduce her to the soul world. Blake is the mentor with the proven track record of getting his artists out.

    I don't think the 17 yr old understands song choice when it comes throwbacks. If you're not going to sing a contemporary song then you need to pick something that makes you sound current, not a hokey 60's movie theme. The Twistin' guy sounded current to me & I was surprised he didn't have more chair turns. She said she loves Patsy Cline & Loretta Lynn so her song choice was even more puzzling to me. I thought Patsy Cline would have been perfect for her voice. If she wanted a ballad why not "Sweet Dreams"?

    Perhaps she will take that advice when/if she auditions again.
    She was more promising than some of those chosen thus far.

    I believe some are "selected" as "intentional" fodder for the battle rounds,

    I like the baseball player's voice. Usher was right about a few iffy moments but I do think he has a lot of potential. I can't quantify why but I think he would be better off with Usher than Shakira.

    Let's Get it On Guy had weird dancing.

    The brain surgery backstory made me tear up. I'm glad she got 3 chairs to turn. I still when Blake gets stands up and yells when the other judges turn around.

    I liked the brain surgery girl. I was listening without watching and really liked her voice.

    Oh, look. Jason Brown is singing.

    I like white guy who sounds like Usher, but looks like Blake. (love Adam's description)

    OMG, someone singing Bonnie Raitt's Angel from Montgomery. I'll vote my fingers off for her just because.

    that song is so sad and makes me cry. Blake could win with her if he picks the right songs. (Or lets her pick since she did very well with the audition).

    I often find performances disappointing when contestants sing my favorite songs. So, I was pleasantly surprised by a couple of the contestants tonight. I love "Wicked Game" and she didn't deliver a vocal as sexy as Chris Isaak's, but I still liked Emily.

    "Angel from Montgomery" is a song that has been covered a lot. I like the John Prine original and his duet with Bonnie Raitt, but I loooove Bonnie Raitt's solo cover. IMO, it's hard to match her version. But, Audra definitely was my favorite of the night. She's no Bonnie Raitt and I think she played a little too much with notes and runs which took out some of the emotion, but Blake got himself a good one.

    Still DVR'ing and fast forwarding. I'm very annoyed that we get tiny clips of some people chosen, but they can spend ages on sob stories and people not picked. Show me the people chosen, not the backstories - that doesn't make me vote or buy.

    Of everyone last night, I liked 'gravelly guy' the best. But, I haven't found my favorite yet this year.

    I was almost named for Connie Francis, so for that one teen, it was a bizarre choice and it cost her a spot.

    And I'm amused by the gamesmanship this year with the coaches, but the late chair turns are getting almost cruel.

    I liked the tone of soccer guy more than most people they pick.
