1 day, 3 hours ago on The Voice 7 Results: Who went home on Top 10 Week? – 11/25/2014
@Idolwild I completely forgot about that performance! Good catch. Although I'd like to see him do a more traditional country song. That performance sat right in that unfortunate middle ground between contemporary and old-fashioned, and I didn't feel it worked. "Make You Feel My Love" would be a great fit for him though, since that song is practically a standard now from how many people have covered it over the decades.

@Idolwild This is an excellent point. Why Adam can't give, say, Damien a country ballad, or Matt a John Denver song (uncanny resemblance notwithstanding), I'll never know. If the goal is to win, you shouldn't take it as given that Blake automatically has 100% of the country vote. You should at least try to siphon some of those votes away, especially since it's easy to give a guy like Matt or even Chris a country song without compromising their artistry. Give Chris a crack at "Always On My Mind" and watch the votes roll in like the high tide.
@ArchieSue You know, if you'd told me at the start of the season that Pharrell would probably be the first coach knocked out of the competition, I'd have thought you were crazy. But now that I think about it, I just can't imagine how on Earth he wouldn't be.
Not because his team isn't strong, but because each of the other coaches has at least one surefire finalist on their team.
@Sowsyalite OMG, GREAT MINDS.
So who else can Ryan believably outlast if he lands in the Bottom 3 again, and who can't his fanbase save him against?
I think if he ends up in the bottom with DaNica or Damien, he might have a shot, since Ryan's fans seem to be the really socially-active type who watch live so they can save him, whereas I'm not sure DaNica's or Damien's fans are the same way, since I would imagine they're a bit older and less tech savvy.
But this is all conjecture at this point. Ryan actually is getting a lot better, and it's much easier to make the case for why he should stay when his opponents are delivering dodgy sing-off vocals.
@Forever504 That's why I asked. I sincerely have no memory whatsoever, haha.

@Idolwild @Jay Styles I don't necessarily think it's iTunes order, I just think it's the overall order, when iTunes, phone, text, Facebook and App votes are all totaled up. Granted, if they are doing it this way, I think they're just doing it this week only, as a way to amuse themselves.
@Jay Styles OMG, YES. THIS.
All video links now posted! Just refresh! Also included at the bottom is a link to our poll, where you can predict who'll be going home tomorrow. Until the results show, thanks for hanging out tonight! It's been a blast, as always.

I actually really like DaNica, but this song choice kind of makes me want her gone. Kind of like how anyone who sings "Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now)" instantly becomes my least favorite person in any given competition the minute they do that song.

Aaaaaaaand here's the pre-emption.
Countdown to pre-emption for Ferguson verdict.

@Forever504 Hey there!
@HarryAbelson I don't think either coach is actively sabotaging their act, but I do think there are acts in their category that they care about more than others. If you're Adam and you think Matt is your best chance at winning, you end up giving all your best to Matt, whether you realize you're doing it or not.
@DesertFox @MyTryst @mr9900 OMG yes. This is the correct answer, in my opinion. No other person has taken so much potential and crapped the bed so thoroughly. She was rumored to have even had the producers behind her. There was no reason she shouldn't have made it to the finale over Luke Friend. But she just couldn't get it together.
1 week ago on Luke Wade sings ‘Thinking Out Loud’ (VIDEO)
I have no idea why they're styling him like a 90s alternative rock singer on that cover.
1 week ago on Chris Hemsworth Is PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive 2014 (PHOTOS + VIDEO)
@gladysjeffrey I agree with you completely. I don't like this twist at all.
Strangely enough. I also thought Luke Wade would win this season when I first heard his voice. Then I switched to James David Carter. And now I have no idea. I want Matt McAndrew to win (great comparison with John Denver! They could be long lost relatives, haha), but given how sporadic the voting has been this season, you never really know. But I'd put all my money behind Matt if I were a betting man (which, thankfully, I'm not haha).

ALL VIDEOS now posted! Thanks for hanging out, everyone! See ya next week.
1 week, 1 day ago on The Voice 7 Results: Who went home on Top 12 Week? – 11/18/2014
@MyTryst Thanks for joining us! See ya next week!
@matthewtodd1212 For The Voice, yes, I always do the recaps. :)
I also do Survivor, The X Factor UK, and a bunch of other shows. Hell, I have Agents of SHIELD and The Flash to do tonight before I can even think about bed.
@matthewtodd1212 Much better twist.
I don't know why they show these suspense-killing vote totals on the screen. It's not like anyone is going to catch Ryan in the next 90 seconds.
THIS IS THE VOICE
@matthewtodd1212 Nice to hear yours as well!
@Forever504 @NickRoman1 @matthewtodd1212 It's okay! You didn't know.
We should probably put up some kind of disclaimer so people know for the future. But don't worry about it.
@matthewtodd1212 Happens to the very finest of us.
@matthewtodd1212 Sorry, I had to delete Forever's link, since we could get in legal trouble by posting streams. But you can direct message or email each other, if necessary.
@matthewtodd1212 Oh I definitely think Sugar is only still here because of Pharrell. I love her, but I can't pretend she wouldn't be eliminated if Pharrell hadn't saved her twice. America just doesn't seem to like her that much, if iTunes rankings are any indication. And her old-fashioned song choices haven't really helped. She could do current songs in a classic style, but Pharrell gives her old-fashioned songs which does nothing to help her sound relevant. It's unfortunate, because I really like Sugar. But I'm thinking this is it for her tonight.
@Jay Styles Pretty much. And it wouldn't surprise me if he ended up winning on the strength of that backstory. This would be a far better twist if it came at an earlier point than the finale. And if it allowed people from the Top 20 who didn't make the Top 12 to have a shot. But if America didn't vote for you the first time, and didn't save you with the Instant Save, then I don't see the particular point in bringing them back. At least with the Top 20, you could make the case that if it were 100% America's vote and not 66.5% America / 33.5% Coaches, that people like Ricky Manning or Elyjuh Rene would have made it in.
@Idolwild At top 3, America votes to bring back a previously eliminated Top 12 contestant, and it becomes a Final 4.
@Forever504 Hey there, Forever!
Not liking that twist, honestly.
@MyTryst I'm Team Matt, all the way.
@mamashmoi That's a great comparison! I'm kind of loving Gwen's outfits more than the makeup though. But she's gorgeous either way.
@Jay Styles I love how the Top 10 is comprised of the songs sung tonight, but by the original artists instead of by The Voice contestants. As if the originals got a big boost. That said, I'm all about Matt sitting pretty at No. 19.

Thanks for reading, everybody! Vote in our poll on who you think will be tomorrow night's bottom 3 (http://www.rickey.org/?p=272222), and keep an eye out as I'll be adding video links as the videos become available.
@Idolwild The Instant Save is still in play.
I hope Luke doesn't beat himself up over that. If I had a nickel for every time I messed up onstage, I'd have enough money to buy my own replica Voice chair to sit in while I live blog this show.
@ArchieSue Great minds! I just wrote the EXACT same sentence up top about Taylor.
I never thought in a million years an Al Green-inspired take on "Creep" would work that well. Yet here we are.
1 week, 3 days ago on The X Factor UK Live Show 6 Results for 11/16/2014 (Recap + Video)
It's Jay vs. Stevi!
Ugh...they need to reveal the bottom 2 already. So many nerves!!!
@Klope62 Thanks for the heads up, Gabe! Replaced it with the better quality CBS video.
1 week, 4 days ago on Johnny Depp Slurs and Curses During Hollywood Film Awards Speech (VIDEO)
@Suzagon The only way the Ryan save makes sense is if this is The X Factor and Gwen plans on making a boy band out of all the guys who got cut.
