@Pisto75666 I'm actually kind of excited for the return of the Undertaker, less because "Hey, it's the Undertaker" and more because I'm anxious to see how the crowd responds to an Undertaker match at WM when there's no more Streak. But I do think this could be a match a lot of people are underestimating. This could be a wild brawl, and it could make Bray a star whether he wins or loses. He just needs to have a good showing, which I think he can do, especially considering how good he looked against John Cena last year (I still can't believe he didn't go over there).

@KariCook Oh I agree. It's redundant as all get-out. But I'm trying to hit on both search terms, so this might maybe come up whether someone is searching "SNL" or "Saturday Night Live". I'm trying to learn more about SEO, but it's been a super long process, so I'm just throwing s*** at the wall to see what sticks, LOL.

This legitimately saddens me. Although Olly Murs would be a very good choice, honestly.

I'm not really feeling this title. Why not just "Fear"?

@Jay Styles @NickRoman1 Eh, Lovey James had the most Twitter followers of anyone this season, and it didn't do her a whole lot of good. Still, Daniel's social media popularity shouldn't be overlooked.

@rogee04 I feel like they're just creating suspense by saving him til the end. But I agree. If he goes home, I think it'll probably be one of the saddest results in the history of the show simply for the back-to-back rejection aspect.

@Sowsyalite @NickRoman1 @GiveMeMusic @ArchieSue That's a great point. If he never showed up in the Bottom 3, his fans would inevitably get complacent and that'd be it. Or he'd land there and his fans would go into overdrive to get him to the finals. But because there's no indication of where the votes are and with whom, his fans are voting like crazy every week regardless. It's interesting to see how not having a Bottom 3 is subtly shaping this season.

@rogee04 I actually think Tyanna is holding together far better than Majesty was, and it's the benefit of not having a Bottom 3 this year. Had Tyanna landed there, she might have been similarly dejected. But she doesn't know where she finished in the rankings, so she doesn't have to worry about America possibly rejecting her. If she wants to believe she was one of the top vote-getters, she can tell herself that without the results proving her wrong. 


But once Majesty landed in the Bottom 3? She was pretty much done. She had probably been telling herself she was at or near the top of the votes, and when the results revealed she wasn't, she never got her confidence back. It was a shame, but you kind of have to mitigate your expectations on a show like this. Yes, you should be confident, but not too much.

@GiveMeMusic @ArchieSue Absolutely!


What I kind of like about there being no Bottom 3 this season is that we're not writing anyone off based on having landed there. Everyone is still a possible winner (well, except Qaasim. I don't care how good you end up being. You don't get eliminated and then win. Not unless you're Natalie Gauci and we're suddenly on Australian Idol).

You know, if they get a more modern theme, I think Daniel could potentially have a moment with "Night Changes".

@Rickey Pretty much. I mean, they might let them sing their song as a farewell song like they did in the Idol days of old. But this is pretty much it for them.

It's kind of insane that the steal happens here and didn't happen in the first battle tonight. Because neither of these girls is winning this thing.

@Forever504 I don't get his fascination with The Fray. Seriously, ever round where the song choice has been up to him, he's picked The Fray.

Looking back on the steals, I really thought the knockout steals would be...I dunno, better. Like, only people who could potentially win.

@RhondaLynnPetersen He's off the show. He either quit or was cut. Hence why we're getting a three-way battle.

I actually saw this when it happened. Aguayo took a drop kick to get in position for a 619, Mysterio's signature move. He was supposed to fall into the ropes in the same position as Manik, the Spider-Man looking guy next to him. But he must have hit the ropes wrong. It's absolutely ghastly to think someone could be killed on such a routine move. But that's why it's such a tragedy.

@Klope62 I figured he'd be a goner if Lucious were going to be arrested, since it really was the only way to avoid a protracted trial storyline. But I kind of love trial storylines, so I'm kind of disappointed that we're probably not getting it in Season 2. 


But still, I trust Empire to continue being addictive as hell either way.

So which two contestants bite it next week in place of Qaasim? I'm thinking Adanna and Tyanna, unfortunately.

If, through some fluke, Qaasim is somehow safe, the Save is getting used.
