And for the record, my top picks for the night are Joey, Sarina, Jax, Alexis and Tyanna, in no particular order.


Meanwhile, I think Shi, Katherine, Adanna and Shannon are in trouble, even though I don't really want Katherine to go home this early. But somebody has to go, I suppose. Blech.

@jewels Woops, accidentally deleted my comment. For anyone reading this from the future, it said "Oh Shi...Honey, no." 


I agree, that just didn't feel like the best song Shi could have chosen.

@mamashmoi @misscreative She reminds me of Kris Allen, in a way. I would always forget about Kris Allen in the early stages, and then he'd perform, and I'd wonder how I ever could have forgotten.

@Shereeda22 I don't watch/recap Suits. :( 


My schedule just got too hectic to keep up with it. I'd love to catch up with it someday though, when I have the time. Maybe over the summer.

They are blazing ass through this show. I'm not sure how I feel about that yet.

Updated Team Standings at the end of the post! The teams are really shaping up, although I'm not as impressed as I was at this same point in the fall. Not yet, anyway. 


All videos posted, btw. Thanks again for hanging out! Goodnight!

@Jay Styles I just like the format more. Once the blinds are done, it feels like The Voice starts rushing to get through the end of its season. With Idol, there's a build and a progression, from the audition phase through Hollywood and live shows. Stories develop backstage and on-screen, and contestants develop right before our eyes. We get almost none of that with The Voice, because the season is over almost before it's really begun, and we're right back to starting all over again two months later.

@Jay Styles Me too. I actually prefer Idol to The Voice, largely because The Voice is pretty much just the Blind Auditions. It feels like everything after is one long string of disappointments and questionable song choices.

@ArchieSue @mamashmoi Great for the audience, but it's hell on recappers like me, since names and critiques fly by so fast. Still, it's a great show.

@ArchieSue I'm absolutely stunned by how many people are picking Pharrell. Even Pharrell seems shocked.

@mamashmoi I'd rather Blake take the break.

@mamashmoi @NickRoman1 I also don't think they film these in episode blocks. So it's not as if Adam got nobody, they all went home, and then started again the next day. I think the auditions just kept going, and the footage was edited so that Adam was shut-out tonight. But this was only one part of the filming day.

@Jay Styles They're thinking towards the future. He may not be great on the show, but he's huge in the music industry. So they probably feel if they establish a relationship with him now, he'll take care of them after the show.

@Forever504 I just think she needs a little more time. I'm not sure she's ready yet.

@Jay Styles @Rickey @Forever504 Starting at Hollywood, the season really started to turn the corner. This could be an all-time season, if America gets it right in the semis.

@john10000 Oh man, I forgot all about Thomas and the dog! If Robert ever finds out about that, Thomas is probably toast, even if it's been years since.

@Sowsyalite I would have lost my MIND. One of my favorites of the year. Personally, I was hoping for a last-minute Whiplash upset, but I knew the chances were basically nil.

Just a heads up, I'm adding video links to the post, so keep refreshing because I'll be adding more as they become available! Rickey is sick, but he's fighting through it because he's a man for all seasons.

@mamashmoi @NickRoman1 @jewels I'm thinking closer to the mid-2000s, when he co-hosted with Alec Baldwin.

@mamashmoi @jewels They honestly haven't had any hosts I've disliked since the Steve Martin/Alec Baldwin duo. Oh, and Anne Hathaway and James Franco, because that was a disaster.

@Shereeda22 Nope. No Constantine either. They're re-airing the SNL 40th Anniversary special. I guess they want to see if the rerun will do good numbers too, considering how well the original airing did.
