"Unfortunately for Joshua, he comes JUST ONE PERCENT shy of raising the Wall!"

didn't josh need at least 75% to beat dana? and even with Luda's 1% wouldnt that give him only 73%? I missed the show so i'm not sure if i didn't catch the details.

she has only had two strong performances. her audition and her bootcamp performance. she has not lived up to any of the expectations she built from those performances. Im not sure whether its nerves, or just not being ready for the show in general, but I do not see her as a contender for the title.

I feel like you reporting this only helps them achieve what they want, sensationalism and attention . I wouldn't have even known about it unless u had reported it. And I honestly don't know what purpose this serves other than to stir up a response to people who don't deserve one ? Sorry Rickey but this story just shouldn't even be on here.

Great recap nick! I honestly don't know how you manage to provide such detailed recaps for every single show you recap, whether it's AGT, X factor Australia, or even scripted shows you recap.

i like her lower to middle range better. towards the end of that it got really screechy and her voice thinned out a lot. However, she's definitely an audience and judge favorite, I see her making the live shows.

ps i know you liked sydnee more than her, nick, but I honestly thought Rachel was going to make it to the lives at least. Ronan even stood on the table for her! I remember bella ferraro having a similar standout audition but then bungling up bootcamp and making it to the live shows just based off how good her audition was. No such luck for Rachel. *sigh*

I hope you do another section about which of the nominees you think will win/should win!

Typical. This guy is attacking yet another author on this site and telling them how to do their job. Nick, I think it's pretty obvious that he thinks his way and his opinion ranks high above all. This snarky attitude is just a reflection of the type of person he is in real life; I won't degrade myself to name calling or pathetic perjoratives that he most likely is accustomed to. Stick with your words nick.

@Rickey @rockers I mention the voice ratings because you always highlight their #1 spot in the ratings. You invite the comparison and Trey made an entirely valid point about reality shows being on a downward trend of ratings. 

 They are fine? then why does every time you post about ratings, you mention how every single episode of Idol/Dwts/TheVoice has come down in ratings from the last season, or the last year, etc etc.

Trey made a very simple point. Reality competitions are on a slide. According to your own articles and posts about ratings in comparison to their past seasons, he is absolutely correct.

you hit the nail on the head.

Its not JUST about each specific show's decline in ratings. Whether people keep talking about idol's tanking ratings, or this show's, it really is just REALITY shows in general. The Voice may be number 1 but it still isn't pulling in as high numbers as last season.  Changing the formula to  your show won't necessarily bring in viewers. Like you said, those days are long gone.

People have the choice of what to click or not click, listen or not listen to. It sucks that you're being bullied and told how to do your job by someone else.

@Idol cookie  

Idol Cookie, you're like the boy who cried wolf. Substance lacks in your responses. you just shout TROLL TROLL, and don't bother to address any points that I've brought up or pointed out with regards to your TROLL TROLL accusations. At least Mikhail showed some sort of educative response in his answer. yours are merely hateful accusations that don't provide any substantive supportive basis. but by all means, continue shouting down the empty hallway to be heard.

@Idol cookie @rockers @NickRoman1 it's pretty disgusting that giving an opinion here is deemed as trolling, and also that you've completely taken away the compliment paid to this writer to fulfill your own agenda. You made something positive about him turn into an attention seeking moment for you. If you wanted to call me a troll you could have done that separately, instead of trying to alter the intentions of MY words. Its extremely ignorant and downright stupid. I'm sorry to nick. I couldn't just let him go thinking he was right about what I was saying. Getting along can only happen when someone isn't being provoked and prodded.

@tonytank7777 i'm not a fan of conspiracy theories, I think if they were trying to rig it, they would have made fifth harmony win it as they are Simon's group and also the "underdogs". It makes for more gripping television. The fact that Tate won makes the votes seem legit, unfortunately.

@Idol cookie @NickRoman1 @rockers how am i a troll? don't bother answering, because obviously no part of my statement here was dripping with malice such as your statement is. I meant every word I said when i complemented the writer of these recaps, and don't try to make it about you or me. it's kinda pathetic how you can take someone's compliment of another and undermine the intentions behind it.

@Mikhail XO @rockers nah, seems like a vocal few to me. at least in direct comparison to the number of positive votes she's receiving on here. you can't acknowledge that she's "leading in th epoll by a wide margin...has a lot of fans here", then say that its more than a "few", like yourself, who dislike her. logic does not work that way unfortunately.
