The show is so much fun to watch! IMO it's the first time a show has incorporated music the right way - it's what Smash and Glee wanted to be.

@DesertFox @Username814 I guess it makes sense, but it almost sounds like most of them are willing to accept not winning just to be part of Blake's "stable". Blake tells a lot of the country singers he will take them all the way and they will win, but I guess some of the other judges do that, too; one reason I respect Pharrell is he doesn't bs as much. It's a tough industry; I guess maybe the realists are happy just getting some of Blake's connections, but it makes for predictable and sometimes boring tv. Let's just call if "Country Voice" and be done with it, lol.

Why do the country singers always pick Blake? Then they go up against each other in the battle rounds. They stand a better chance of getting through the early rounds if they are not competing against Blake's other singers. So much for strategy.

@mr9900 Because there's knee jerk reactions, and then there's just jerk reactions. People are too lazy to really think about what she said.

Yay Caity Lotz. I actually wish Laurel had died instead of Sara; Lauren is just soooooo whiny I want to smack her.

It was nice for her to have a chance to show a broader audience that she really has pipes. Until tonight, I bet many people just knew her as some crazy performance artist.

Great to see J Hudson on the tiny screen. but Empire is all about Taraji P Henson and Terrence Howard - they are so freakin incredible in this show. Guest stars are fine but they have to keep these two the focus!

The original cast was exceptional. They are going to have a very hard time meeting that standard.

I feel so badly for this child. I hope she gets through this. But lots of people have hard times growing up and have less than perfect parents. She needs to realize that whatever happened in her life before, she owns it now. The only way she is going to survive is if she takes responsibility for her choices from this moment on. I hope she can make peace with her past and move on.

I kinda hated the backup band, I'm so used to hearing them acapella, and I love them that way. So cute!

What happened to "we don't negotiate with terrorists"? Especially ones with bad haircuts and "stage 5 cheese ankle" (thanks, Steven Colbert). They should release it on the internet for free for EVERYONE to see around the world!!! It's not like they can blow up each computer and tv. Stuff that in your soup bowl hat, Kim Jong None!

Could have just ended the show after they won - they literally broke the mold! So good individually and so good together. Always blown away by Kirstie's voice. I kind of feel sorry for acapella groups that try to follow...

We've joked for years that when Alex says "you won't be around to play final Jeopardy" it means the contestant is taken out in the alley and shot! Perhaps instead of "you won't be around" he might consider saying "you don't qualify for final Jeopardy". Otherwise, the Jeopardy sounds pretty final, lol. I guess her heirs get the $1000......

Fleur is not at all the kind of artist I usually gravitate to (more the Ella Henderson type) but I found something intriguing about her. Then I started looking at all her clips here. Then I couldn't get enough. She totally pulled me in and I'm a fan. She doesn't have to best voice in the world but there's something about her...and I love watching artists who seem to be having a good time, too. She's killing it, knows it, and it is infectious. She would be a great winner!
Usually the winners are potentially great recording artists but not anyone I would want to see live; in her case, it's all about the live performance.

Ben Folds was the most amazing judge and will definitely be missed. Not sure if the others have deep enough musical and critical chops to pull it off.

Man, I really love them! So happy for all their success.

I think Chloe broke my ears during her sing-off. Based on that, she deserved to go. I dunno, she always made me think of a drag Marilyn. But I do think she handled her elimination well.

@Rickey maybe not for Quint. He can grow up, drop the braces and the Urkel look, and audition for Idol or whatever iteration of singing competitions exist in a few years.

Jennifer was incredibly generous. She gave Quint all the best parts to show off his range. Sweet
She has got some pipes on her. This is tough this year, SOS is also fantastic (love their lead singer). And, frankly, I love the magic guy, too.

This kid would be the perfect diamond in the rough. You can see there's a lot of personality there if he just loosens up a bit. And to Cheryl's point, while I love bonnie raitt, i cringe when i hear this song now it is so overdone, but he killed it.
