    Here we go.. I'm not really excited about this but might as well finish what I started. :D

    Lauren is ready to sing. So the rumors are true. Doctor gave her lots of meds and says she's good to go.

    Round 1:

    Scotty - "Gone" - The usual Scotty performance. I'm sure the tweens are ecstatic.

    Lauren - "Flat on the floor" - Could definitely tell her voice isn't there fully. Good at some points but you could hear the strain.

    Round 2:

    Scotty - George Strait picks "Check yes or no" - I thought he did alright.

    Lauren - Carrie Underwood picks "Maybe it was Memphis" - I thought she did an admirable job but nothing that blew my socks off.

    Randy says round 1 to Scotty round 2 to Lauren, JLo says the same. Steven gives both rounds to Lauren because she's prettier.

    Some new Coke single.

    Round 3:

    Scotty - "I love you this big" - Another alright performance. Pretty dull if you ask me.. BLEH.. "Brilliant vocal"... Come on Randy!

    Lauren - "Like My Mother Does" - Once again an alright song but nothing that blew my socks off. I'm just not feeling it like the judges. I know they have to prop this up but come on!

    I'll throw Lauren a few votes but really don't care who wins.

    I thought they both did well and the judges did their best to push Lauren but I am not sure it will be enough to overcome the demographics of the voters. I still think Scotty is going to take it.

    But, I am rooting for Lauren.

    I find it hard to believe that both those new songs are not going to be released as singles at some point. I can see them both being very popular in that genre if produced well.

    I dunno I've heard from a couple people online that their teenage daughters have switched from Team Scotty to Lauren tonight. I hope everyone feels that way. I do like Scotty alot too.

    I didn't catch Lauren's last song title either. What was it?

    I thought Lauren did really well tonight, especially for having a strained vocal cord. My favorite was her first song (and one of my favorites all season next to Anyway) and her single was a nice tribute to her mom.

    Doesn't it seem like an unfair advantage for Lauren to get drugs specifically for her vocal cords? In some ways I think she sounded better than normal.

    I think the poor widdle Lauren thing was a last ditch ploy for sympathy votes. They are desperate- I've never seen such blatant machinations.
    Scotty didn't just get the bus, he got a Mack Truck and it went over him twice!

    Lance Armstrong says it's perfectly acceptable.

    Nice! I don't believe it about Lance. He's just more aerodynamic without that extra appendage.

    It seems they really want Lauren to win for some reason. Even down to the last song "Like My Mother Does" a by Kristy Lee Cook. Perfect vote song, about being like Mom.

    Maybe she can pull it out with the all out push they gave her. We had a hard time focusing on this episode because none of us were vested in a contestant lots of side comments and chit chat going on. Teen country not our cup of tea. Not that there is anything wrong if you like it.

    I dont think either of them bring anything new to country-pop.
