It's (country/Christian/whatever) not my thing, but I thought Adam should have picked Jeff! He had an amazing voice. Casey is just..whatever.

T Christina: Frenchie has an amazing voice, but I think I want Beverly to win the whole thing; she's great!

T CeeLo: (I never even knew of CeeLo before this, but I think I really like him! ..at least his persona? I don't know anything about him beyond that. He might be horrible.) I love Nakia! Vicci is also awesome. Loved the performance, but thought it was a bit off in the beginning?

T Blake: I really do like Dia's voice and her creativity, but her awkwardness is now coming off a bit...I dunno. Very odd. Xenia-boring.

T Adam: Didn't like Casey at all. Don't even think it sounded that good. boots and that dress? no. Javier will probably win the whole show, and I'd be fine with that. So cute too!

Team Christina : Love both Frenchie and Beverly and will be sad one of them has to go tonight.

Team CeeLo : Loved both performances, and ditto what I said above about being sad.

Team Blake : If I had to pick one to like on this team, it'd be Dia. I just don't understand why he picked to save Xenia. This show is supposed to be about finding the next great voice, not who can grow the most during the competition. That being said, I haven't liked Xenia since day 1.

Team Adam : Love Javier, and would love to see him win the whole thing. Not sure why Adam saved Casey, when IMO, Jeff was a stronger singer. Casey just seems really whiny/nasally to me.

Does anyone else think this show would be better if the top 4 vote-getters were the actual top 4, regardless of which team they were on instead of just the top vote-getter from each team making up the top 4? Because for me, there are going to be at least 2 people going home tonight that I think are better/stronger singers than those who remain.

When Adam was talking to Nakia and he was like, "I've never heard that song but I'm pretty sure you sang it better than the original," I was like OH HELLS TO THE NO.

hee! i was similarly bemused by that. and seriously, how has adam levine lived in an adam lambert-less bubble? my next thought was, "dude, watch yer twitter feed." yikes.

i feel like christina keeps giving frenchie weird songs to sing. her voice is amazing but it sounds funny when she has to sing a faster/poppy song. and i actually thought she could do a cool take on like a prayer, but then it was all zippy. strange.

loved dia, but i think she is just right in my lane. i love quirky breathy voices.

blake shelton keeps cracking me up, but yes, that honeybee song was lame-o. and adam levine is still so pretty.

i think its a percentage. 100 points (50%) scored by the judges and 100 points (50%) by the audience/voters.

What don't you understand about it?
ETA: Lindsay must've replied at the same time as I was.

I wasn't too surprised by the results tonight. Next week should be interesting.

i guess i was just confused about the audience numbers; where they came from and what they added up to. they flashed the first set so quickly, i couldn't do the math... plus i ff through carson daly a lot. so, prolly my own fault.

I was totally expecting/hoping it to be Nakia for CeeLo! Hmph.
Blake is really sweet with the two girls. I really do like that about this show. It seems like they all sincerely care, and it's close knit.

I freaking LOVE Dia. Would buy her album. Prob not the others' albums.

Also she looks just like Jessica Alba, no?

i think dia is a vegetarian. on the meg & dia wiki page it says they are involved with peta2. there was something on her twitter though about not being able to be vegan because she loves ice cream :\

If it were up to me, Javier or Bev would win.

Dia was kind of forgetable to me last night, as in when they did the recap at the end, I had completely forgotten what she had sang. Not good.

Loved the Xtina/Bev and CeeLo/Vicci duets. That's the CeeLo I'm used to seeing, as compared to the tame one of a few weeks back.

I wanted to love Vicci's original song since I love anything Butch Walker related, but I wasn't really feeling it. I dont' know if she was trying too hard or if I was just expecting something different.

ETA: bluedawg, I, too was hypnotized by Xtina's lipstick, and more importantly, her lip liner when she was singing. It was so distracting to see this really dark line and realize it wasn't a shadow from the mic like I thought at first.

I don't really care about what happens on this show, but I kind of want Blake to adopt me.

Gah! I was kinda bored with all of the performances. HATED both guest performances. I liked Beverly's "original" best. I've always liked Dia's voice, but her breath really annoys me. She breathes too loudly!

For a second, I thought one of the flipping kids in the Cee-lo/Vicci performance was Vicci! I was like whoaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

The guy from Train was kind of giving me the creeps.

Why is everyone choosing INSANELY bad songs to show off their voices? We're 3/3 for terrible song choice.

the one thing i cant stand about this show is the stupid "social media lounge."

Yes omg the social media lounge is ridiculous.

I'm really really happy that Javier won! He deserves it. And even though I said I would only really buy Dia's album, I'm sure I'll still get the chance to (for all the finalists), so she didn't need to win. None of them did; they'll all get recording contracts.

I'm still laughing about the fact that Javier got to perform with Stevie Nicks and the others performed with...the dude from Train, the dude from One Republic, and Miranda Lambert. I'd have been pissed.
