    That might have been Kat Robichaud, who performed AWOLNATION's "Sail." She performed right at the midpoint of the episode.

    I agree. I think she was at least first or second in the top 12 sing-off, so I don't know how she wasn't somewhere in the general viewer pick, particularly given some of the people they kept. I don't know that she's demonstrated much range, but she definitely does rock well.

    The only bad thing I've noticed about her is her habit of being overly "Rocker Grrl!", throwing hand signs et al during the interviews. Yeah, we get it...

    Despite her being a local, I'd never heard of her before the appearance on Voice.

    Twice now my TiVo didn't record the second show of the week even though it is set up for a season pass. Are they using a different name for the Tuesday night show?

    My U-Verse DVR picked them both up (both weeks). Did you check to make sure you didn't have conflicts?

    Agreed with Austin going home. Had him in the bottom 2. I had Kat ranked low, so it doesn't surprise me too much that she left. But I had Matthew actually lower than Kat. I had Caroline down towards the bottom, but higher than Austin or Kat, so it didn't surprise me that she was saved.

    This whole thing is going to come down to Cole, James and Jacquie.

    James and Matthew imo. Cole has zero chance of winning. Jacquie could be a dark horse but as talented as she is she has tonal issues and control issues. But her raw power is undeniable for sure.

    And I don't get the bolded at all.

    What was with all the fake guitar playing? Why not just lip sync, too?

    You know, The Voice had carved out a nice little niche that was SO much better than AI. Then, they roll out these totally lame group song and dance piles of steaming poo and they're right back in the AI wheelhouse.

    Those group songs are AWFUL. Why do they even do them?

    The song just didn't work for me. And I loved his Hallelujah version the week before.

    To pad 45 minutes in a results show that takes about 5.

    It's an incredibly difficult song to sing and he did one of the better jobs covering it that I have heard. It certainly wasn't perfect and he ran out of gas on the final note but he is in another league vocal wise from Kat. Her version of the Benatar song was mediocre at best. She just does not have the upper range tone to do that song justice. She has a voice better suited for Melissa Etheridge type material in my opinion.

    I don't love alot of the group songs but I absolutely LOVED watching Adam and his team singing "A Hard Day's Night." I thought it was fantastic.

    I kind of like the dynamic of this season in that it isn't just the same artist(s) at the top each week. Will, who was saved via steals twice is now the only one with a top 10 on itunes for the week. He's leading the pack while Matthew's most recent song is currently 17 spots behind his rendition of Hallelujah from two weeks ago, not to mention behind all other top 8 entries.

    I did think this week was overall better quality than last week though. I felt last week was something of a dud.

    Based on itunes it looks like we may have all 3 team Adam moving on and one each from the other teams.

    I haven't looked at iTunes but I predict the bottom 3 will be Caroline, Matthew, and Ray . And I think Matthew gets saved .

    I could also possibly see Tess in the bottom 3 I don't think that was a great song choice to garner votes but I also think her group performance may have helped her

    I thought James did a great job but he's not going to win this thing doing Queen covers I think he needs to do more stuff like the acoustic thing he did a few weeks ago. He needs to find an identity.

    Jacquie continues to show amazing raw power and potential but is not really able to handle her incredible instrument yet.

    (danielhart, can you turn off the tapatalk signature please? Thanks!)

    Matthew's performance was a disaster last night. It was a bad fit for him (leaving me baffled by the fact that he says it's the kind of music he wants to do), and his voice was thin and warbled all around the notes, never hitting any of them. Adding in the choreography and the inexplicable patriotic graphics left me just baffled.

    I actually thought that style-wise, the song was a great choice for Tessanne, given her origins. Unfortunately, she way over-sang it. "Underneath It All" ranges in volume throughout, with a rather tender bridge section late in the song, but Tessanne sang the whole thing at 11. It exposed some rather unpleasant tones to her voice, and I wasn't that impressed with the performance.

    Caroline did better than I thought she would at "Dog Days are Over," but it seemed like she flat out ran out of breath at multiple points throughout, and I think she screwed up the lyrics late in the song. I think she's got a musical niche, I just think that Ceelo has been mismanaging her, and I really don't think she has a chance in the long run.

    Ray was all sorts of blah. The whole performance had no soul, which is bizarre given what he was singing. Even the "engage the audience" parts were stiff and rang completely hollow.

    I said to my wife "you know how people say that some singers make it look effortless? Matthew is the opposite of whatever that is". Had to be the most forced singing performance I've seen on TV to date.

    If it were up to me, the top six would only have three people in it. I'd put Will, James and Jacquie through this week and that's it. :)
