Oh I like De'borah, that's the lesbian, right? Anyway I loved her relationship with her parents.... there needs to be more representations of religious parents supporting their gay child. Sweet.

Xtina is so misunderstood

She gave a lame excuse but I think the actual reason is strategy. Last year, she tried to build a diverse team. This year, she's trying to build a pop team

I think this season is great too even with 'some' judges still letting their ego's dictate their artist choices... I suspect it will take Xtina being the only one not to have won to change her attitude in pairing down her team.

Xtina is such an ego manniac, she wasn't ever going to keep anyone that she thought could show her up. Did she say with one pick she wanted the one who needed her the most? Eh, not when the other lady out sang and out performed her....

What's the old lady's name who got screwed over because all the judges thought the red head girl kind of sucked and then found out she had potential? She got Screwed!
Nicole Nelson is the name. That was surprising and a very difficult choice. I think Nicole was very good but somewhat predictable by now, so to have someone come out and match her and surprise everyone... it was a risk worth taking. Adam made a strange choice to drop Kayla for that shrieky girl who comes across as an arrogant bitch, which was unfortunate. He still has Bryan, Amanda and Melanie though, and those are pretty solid.

Stop defending her.

Her ego is only as big as her ass now.

You knew she was going to pick Sylvia for singing her song. And she probably picked Devyn because she sang her song during the blinds, and Adriana because the first CD she bought was Xtina's.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Well, I think all 3 of them deserved to go through based on their Knockout performances (even though I prefer Aquile to Sylvia, I think he chose the wrong song). The only thing I didn't agree with was pairing Devyn and Laura because they were two of her weakest team members, IMO. Should have done Devyn vs Sylvia and Laura vs Aquile or something

yeah see that's the problem, she leaves talent out of her strategy, if someone shows too much talent especially in her genre or her Diva land you ain't going to make it on her team.

Same with Blake, well not so much this season but in the past, if he thought any of the female country singers were better than his wife they were toast.

Yeah, I wish she kept Aquile and paired him with Devyn. He's super-hot.

But Sylvia is the most powerful and Xtina-like singer, so I can see why she kept her.

Who are you talking about? Laura? I don't think she was that good

I loved his voice on You Give Me Something. Why did he pick Grenade? He sounded so bland on it

Oh ok, Nicole... the problem is when you have perfected your craft it's hard to improve from one round to the next.... Especially when your coach takes it for granted that you know what you are doing. I understand the choice though because now that girl is going to have a following as the girl who broke out and shocked everybody. I think the show needs to do a much better job of pretending not to screw the old ladies..... It seems serious experience is only a problem when it comes to women. We'll see next season how it goes.

Why do artist pick her? She would be my last choice if I was a female artist unless I was like De'borah and there's no competition.

Maybe taking a season break we will get a new and improved Xtina Judge.

Laura is that the hispanic girl? Her voice wasn't a competition but Divadom was definitely there. She was a bright star on that stage and I can't even remember the other girl... oh yeah the girl who sang Whitney and thought falling to her knees was the definition of stage presence.

Aquile was bland on that song but the girl that beat him wasn't anything special, I can't even remember who it was.... Ok, I can't use that as a reason as I can barely remember my name half the time ..... but I do remember thinking .... eh

I didn't like either of them

I really don't think it's an ego thing. She does seem to be biased towards a certain type of singer though


Anyway, I think they should change the format of the Knockout Rounds. They're bringing back a flaw in the Battle Rounds that they fixed with the Steal

True, maybe they should have to go against someone on the other team and the the two other judges get to vote? I don't know but it seems the only one who gave his steals as much of a chance as his original team was Adam. If they are not going to embrace the stolen artists than what the point?

ohh or maybe a coach picks the pair from his team but the other three coaches pick the winner? I don't think they would sabatoge because their people will have to sing eventually too!

Not sure the other steals deserved to go through other than Marissaann, who was robbed

They could just have all 10 of them sing, then have their coach announce the 5 winners

They basically enter the competition as unknowns but leave with at least a small group of fans
