It’s too bad that three singers from each team moved on, because Team Adam and Team Christina were definitely stronger teams than Blake or Cee Lo’s.
Team Blake: America voted through Austin and Cole, and Blake selected Ray. I was a little surprised – I thought Blake might choose Shelbie to mix it up a little. I like Austin and Cole on that team, so I’m glad they’re getting votes.
Team Cee Lo: American voted through Caroline (Yesssss!!) and Jonny (ohhh….) and Cee Lo selected Kat. Wow. I really expected and hoped that he’d choose Tamara, she’s so talented. Kat really bugged me in that group performance, but she’s OK. I just don’t think she’s great. Caroline is the only star on Cee Lo’s team in my world.
Team Christina: America saved Jacquie and Matthew, as they should have. They’re both fantastic. Christina selected Josh, which I thought was the worst decision. I like Stephanie best, but I thought Christina might choose Olivia because she’d be the only real country singer left. But Josh? Whaaa? Oh well, Team Xtina still has two killer singers.
Team Adam: America saved James and Tessanne. I wasn’t surprised because Tessanne is amazing, and James’s song sold like hotcakes on iTunes. But I think James can be pretty inconsistent. Adam selected Will, and I’m really happy – I wanted to see more from him than I did the others.
I think it’s looking like a great final stretch of the season! My favorites are Tessanne, Will, Jacquie, Matthew, Caroline, Austin and Cole. That’s a lot of favorites, y’all. That’s a good sign.
