@lkim65 @digitalpunkdiva Simply put for you she did not develop a large enough fanbase with an emotional connection to pull her up over less talented performers. Who she is musically determines marketability, direction and opportunity.  She is always going to be able to work in the industry but to break out she has to have fans that will pay to see her.

Watching Amanda I thought she was technically proficient and probably the best singer but hard to connect with on an emotional level. I still don't know who she is musically except for being  extremely talented. I'm not surprised she was in the bottom but I did think Nick and Melanie were going to go before she did. I think Nick's fans felt more of a heart connection to him and pulled him up into the final four. Surprised Terry has so many fans he's kinda boring.

He's got that warm soothing tone made for adult contemporary. Great snuggle bunny song.

Great voice. She needs a bit more personality. Somehow her stage presence doesn't match up with the talent in her voice.

She's probably the most marketable talent. I like her. I like her voice. But she has a limited range and a very shallow bottom register which undermines the big rock star sound she desperately wants to project.  She needs some safe peppy little pop tunes that's don't make her sound like a watered down cranberry or sounds like  indie artiste of the day.

Very weak cover. Marvin Gaye was an exceptional singer/songwriter and this tune is outside of Nick's ability.  He needed to rework the song or not sing the song. I don't think its a good song choice for tv. Nick is talented but from the other side of the screen the set was boring. Something MG was definitely not.

Amanda has a good voice. I just don't know who she is as a singer. She's trying really hard but the song  arrangement doesn't sell me. She might have the wrong coach.

Great performance. I think out of the pack this year and thus far she has the most versatility.   If she can find a really strong production writing team she is totally ready for today's market.

He has way more charm and poise than vocal ability. He is still young and a lot of male singers really arrive in their 30's so he has some time to mature. Being cute will only get you so far. I see him more as an actor with singing ability.

Battle round is an odd concept. Its kinda like a chorus line screening only for vocalists and it doesn't work very  because of all the different styles and genre's. However you still need a way to whittle down the pool from 40 plus singers. Instead of a duet I say let em all sing a song and get scored individually and drop the weakest 5 from the team at the get go.

Maybe its the water in the UK. The strangeness isn't her singing its the audience responding to her singing that's scary. I'm afraid she's headed to the looney bin if they drop her cause the reaction is totally disproportionate to her actual level of ability. Sad.

Dave's sophmore album is really mediocre. Every track is virtually identical and tending towards pop-cheese.He would be wise try and find a label that will allow him to work with a strong producer. I'd like to see him get his Indie edge back rather than support him selling treacle.

 @hrstump By develop I mean really coach them into another level of performance. Not interested in the life story so much as taking a raw talent or under performing talent  show the process of development. Not the sob stories. Maybe save voting for the last two weeks when they are more polished.

Nicely done. None of them would have been my choice for the finals. Don't know if this format really does the talent justice since yeah, they find good voices then spend six weeks eliminating then instead of actually developing them. Oh well.

Very good. Until tonight he was kinda marginal. It took him a long time to get animated and deliver.  I'm not so sure though he has a broad range of material he can do yet. He's a little bit too nervous (high strung) for me now but he may grow out of it.

I think he screams...because no one told him to stop. LOL Seriously. No one has stepped up and said. "You have to be careful of over singing and less is more. Be careful with your runs." Isn't what what the judge/critics are supposed to to do? Now its too late.

No superstars here. Good performers when not stressed to hell. Too bad the two performers I'd like to see in the finals now are on the same team. Jamar and Juliet. They are the most compelling even when not perfect. I don't know if Katrina can have a hit. Lindsey needs a little bit of time to develop and also stop singing to her shoes and her guitar.

Lindsey is a small venue player. Big tent stuff  will bury her vocals unless she has some stripped acoustics sets. She may learn with practice how to add volume to her voice. For now nothing over about 500 seats in a club is what she should aim for.

Katrina needed a lot more oomph in her voice for the arrangement. She sounds tight where she needed to let loose and use her lower register. Not a great song choice for the semi-finals. Its something you sing in the middle of a set not open or close with.

I like Jamar. He is at least on key, compelling and delivers a clean professional product. Just the right touches. He may not win but at least he is compelling. I hope he gets picked up by a major company.  If he can get a hit under his belt he has a shot t the long term.

Not bad. A second string talent. He's a novelty act. He has some serious flaws in his voice and delivery that are problematic and I suspect is the reason he is not with a top tier opera company now.. But he could win if the public buys into his act. But I don't see him selling records.

Her voice is fine. I suspect she might be tone deaf and not used to singing with a band. Needs coaching. She's not a sophisticated or polished singer so she's falling back on raw emotion when she should be restrained.I totally get that warm alto tone Sir Tom and the public like, but I don't think she's going to get enough time to develop into a better singer on the show.

 @bwatt27 Yeah all the signs are in Lindsey favor. It would be very very strange for Xtina not to have Lindsey in the final. In the long run I think she did Jesse a bigger favor by giving him underdog status and creating a controversy than if he just warbled off into the sunset. Keep in mind the "best" singers rarely win this type of talent show.

 @Idolwild Its all about the money. Jesse is not going to sell a lot of records out the box. Unarguably he was the best singer on the show. However he may have, like the other eliminated singers gotten what he needed as far a showcase and picked up enough fans get a deal and make a living. She may have done him a favor in the end.
