Okay so there were a couple of standout performances but I think I enjoyed last weeks better.
01. Jamar - Are You Gonna Go My Way?
Thought this was brilliant. He brought presence, a great vocal, fun, all that he needed to bring really.
02. Juliet - Roxanne
I thought this was very impressive though I think some are going a bit overboard saying she's the best ever. She's good at what she does but I'd like to see a softer side.
03. Pip - When You Were Young
Didn't really get the criticism for this, thought he let go and gave his all. Certain cheesy things he does annoy me but that's usually outside of performance.
04. Tony Lucca - In Your Eyes
I liked this, a big step up from his battle. Thought it was very powerful. I don't think Christina was being unneccessary, she maybe didn't need to add 'celebrity sway' but regardless of how well she knows him, if she thinks he is one-dimensional, she should say so.
05. Mathai - Ordinary People
Her voice is very unique and charming and at times beautiful. Not sure if this was THE best song for her but there were moments of brilliance.
06. James Massone - Don't Know Why
It didn't really go anywhere but he certainly has a beautiful voice and it was a lovely listen.
07. Katrina Parker - Tonight, Tonight
Could she have looked anymore Adele? Thought she was stunning. I really liked the performance in general. It was subtle, but powerful.
08. Karla - Airplanes
I thought she kept command of it, it didn't run away with her with it's wordiness, but perhaps not the best song for her. Like, not love.
09. Cheesa - Don't Leave Me This Way
The first of those I didn't really like, it was very cheap karaoke for me.
10. Kim - Rolling In The Deep
Could there have been a more uninspired choice? And she didn't even attempt to change it. Not good enough but at least you could see the hunger in her eyes.
11. Erin Marin - Walk Like An Egyptian
Some nice bits but not enough.
12. Tony Vincent - Everybody Wants To Rule The World
So creepy, didn't like it.
So my picks would have been:
Cee-Lo: Jamar, Juliet, James (Cheesa)
Adam: Pip, Tony, Mathai (Katrina)
So the results were exactly as I hoped, yay!
They were no brainers really. Karla at least gave Katrina a bit of a run for her money while Kim gave up, but Erin and Tony had nothing on Cheesa... that NOTE! Wow, she pulled it out when needed.
Interestingly, on the NBC YouTube page, from the live shows, Lindsey's 'Somebody TIUTK' is most viewed, then Rae Lynn 'Wake Up Call' and then Ashley De La Rosa with 'Paris'
