Gaga girl is very annoying, and her stage manner bugs me.
Gaga backup has some flawless skin. Not a fan of the voice though. A bit too screamy on the high notes. But, she's gorgeous. Reminds me a bit of Meryl. Anyone else see it?
OK. Those judges have scripts. No way CeeLo heard about her eating disorder in her voice. Although he just asked about pain. I figured it was because those shorts were too tight and cutting into her hooha.
CeeLo's expression at first when Christina said "that's you" was priceless. That's the expression he's going to make right before he turns around for mlp and me.
We are going to be dressed in our pineapple and palm tree gypsy wedding garb, right?
omg i finally get to bust out my gypsy clothes, i'm so happy. i wont even care when xtina laughs at us from behind her fan.
I'll stand backstage with Carson and jump up and down for you. Then I get to run out on stage and fling myself at Adam. And Blake.
Xtina has a lot of pop on her team.
Cee Lo gave up immediately. Kayla might have been better with Xtina. Of all the voices tonight, she would have turned my chair, she's different. Wonder if she went with Adam since he turned first?
I think maybe the only person on Adam's person I'd be tempted to pick up the phone for is Nicole at this stage. I don't understand his team or strategy at all.
There are a lot of teenagers this season. Last year skewed much older. Xtina's battle rounds are going to be a bloodbath.
so far no bald lesbians
I don't want to know about CeeLo's soft spots.
That was probably my favorite audition of the night. I'd have turned around in four notes too. I think Christina is a good match for her. I like Christina's team, but they're too similar to each other. Too many poppy brunettes (except the two brunettes tonight, who are fabulous).
Jessica looks like a country song.
I wish he'd gone all the way and just owned it and sang "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad."
OMG. Let the AR boy be good so I'll have someone to root for. His hometown is about 20 miles from mine.
I want that bird to poop on CeeLo's head.
And Rob Thomas. Please let him sing Smooth.
There are SO MANY people from Louisiana AR boy is headed for a stint in Celebrity Rehab.
At this point, I think Blake has the strongest team, but CeeLo has the best individual singers.
Ugh, Rob Thomas.
Loved that last guy's reaction. Very fun and a nice way to end the night.
Yeah. It was funny when the fifteen year-old said "when I was young." She's totally Blake's type of contestant. I knew he would turn his chair. I wonder what Xtina will do with her.
Singing Grandpa aside, I think it's pretty clear that the producers are going for that lucrative younger audience demographic. They've cut back on the number of over 35 contestants and they do seem to be going a little bit more mainstream pop.
It may be very interesting to watch Kayla and Adam. I think she picked him because of how cutthroat he is. She seems to be almost as hardcore competitive as he is. It could be a very good combination or a disaster if they butt heads.
Rodeo dude at the end was a hoot.
I'm looking forward to seeing these mentors and watching the coaches steal from each other.
De'borah is almost bald. But I see your point.
Let him keep it real.
I love BamBam , but I don't think he's going to last very long though. Sill, good for him for getting to the next round.
I actually loved the country guy who looked like a rocker...Rudy something. He's fodder no matter how well he does, esp if he battles a cute girl. I think he made a mistake going with Blake. And Kayla is definitely special. I think she has the ability to distinguish herself from all the other young girls. They have some amazing people this year.
Recap show tonight so we can separate the contenders from the fodder.
team adam: Scotty fodder, Weird kid with the bangs will go down in face of some of Xtina's pop kiddies assuming she makes it through a battle round. I like Melanie and Nicole but Adam will pitch them against each other. I don't think he has the winner this time.
team Blake: Gracia (LOVE HER) I hope she goes all the way. Fodder, fodder, fodder, Rudy (he's good) ass-spanking fodder, Cassidy (hope he does not put her against Gracia--there're plenty of country fodder he can waste) fodder, fodder, fodder. Either Gracia or Cassidy could win.
team CeeLo: I've got to for BamBam from Beebe, AR. I don't think he'll win, but I hope he makes it to the live shows. Mackenzie (Justin Beiberish--could work with the right songs), weird Nicholas--fodder, Avery Wilson (could win), once again he has the weird ones with hiphop fodder, Trevin (could win---DO NOT PUT HIM AGAINST AVERY---That would be criminal). He's got some weird ones, but he's also got two of the best singers on the show this season
Xtina has all the pop princesses. She'll eliminate half of them right away. Sing off key during rehersal with her and she'll put you against someone who doesn't. I think she's more ruthless than the other three. No idea who'll end up as her final 4
Wheee. They can steal a singer if a coach eliminates them. That will make them seriously consider who they pair up in the battle rounds.
I'm DVRing DWTS since I only like 3 dancers and watching the Voice.
I'm so excited for The Steal. Though this may be because it promises more judge banter and less of those annoying singers.
My favorites from the recap and auditions. Of course, I hated Julia Simms at the beginning and was practically frothing at the mouth and chewing furniture when she didn't win. I fully admit to being capricious in all things.
*Nicole Nelson (early favorite), Kayla Nevara
(I don't understand his team at all. AT. ALL.)
Terry McDermott, Gracia Harrison, Kelly Crapa, **Suzanna Chofel (so, no, not the best voice on the show, but she had my favorite audition of the season), Cassandra Pope, Terisa Griffin
Nelly’s Echo, Deborah, Jordan Pruitt, *Celica Westbrook, Nathalie Hernandez
*Trevin Hunte, Avery Wilson, Alexis Marceaux, MacKenzie Bourg, Mycle Wastman, Diego Val
Nobody jumped out as a front runner this season, unlike the past seasons, like Javier (season 1) and Jessie (season 2), who I couldn't understand why Xtina eliminated him. Maybe that's where the 'steal' concept originated, to give the loser of a pair of very strong performers who still deserve to be in the competition another chance. And if they pair 2 weak performances together, they shouldn't advance either.
I watch both the Voice and X-Factor and suprisingly the only performance that really stood out for me was the 37 yr. old African American dad on the X-factor that they showed towards the end last Thursday. He sang effortlessly and looked like he wasn't really trying and just having fun, in addition to having a smooth tone to his voice. A lot of the 'good' singers on both shows belt too hard, like Nicole on the Voice making it look like they're trying too hard.
Do they show all the audition performances that got chair-turns in full on the recap show? because if it's just performances I've seen already I may skip it.
No new performances were shown on the recap.
These are the people I think are frontrunners:
Adam: Nicole Nelson
Blake: Gracia Harrison, Cassadee Pope
Christina: Dez Duron
Ceelo: MacKenzie Bourg, Trevin Hunte
Of all the contestants, I think Gracia has the best chance for a great career whether she wins or not.
