No surprise that this is thread here. Anyway the battle rounds are continued tonight.

I saw a bit of this. This reminds me of The Hunger Games. A lot. I feel like the contestants are going to start killing each other.

I don't like any of their voices but a couple of the guys are cute.

I usually can't stand shows like this (Idol, X-factor etc) but they have found some really interesting artists in this show.

Most of the battles have been of a pretty high standard so far but Mahalia v. Prinnie was a standout. The thing that I don't like is that there has to be a sacraficial lamb to go up against the really popular contestants to make sure they get through the battle rounds. The guy who went up against Rachael and the woman who was against Karise weren't going to get through no matter how well they sang simply because of the hype surrounding those two girls (deserved as it may be).

The judges (particularly Delta) can be pretty irritating but there are enough good voices to keep me watching for now.

I usually dont watch these shows. Hate Idol, Australia's Got Talent, XFactor etc. But I actually enjoy this one.
Some of the battle rounds have been great. There have been some obvious choices and some difficult ones.

Loved Casey and Rachael's auditions! Can't believe Sarah Lloyd went home :sad: I normally don't like Australia's versions of these shows and just watch the UK X-factor but The Voice is great! Lakyn :hearts: Laura Bunting has a pretty interesting singing voice.

Apparently it took Joel 45minutes to make the decision between Prinnie and Mahalia :eek:

Delta is the best thing about this show. She's so beautiful! :hearts:

Also, I can't believe none of them have picked "When you believe" for the battle rounds. It would be a perfect duet.

But at the same time, none of these contestants are even close to Whitney/Mariah. It would be bad for them I think.

Got home late from training, missed about 15 mins.
Watched Kieran and Sam - Kieran :shrug: Didn't sound too good, Sam was great on the other hand.
Yianna and Sarah was also great, Yianna wasn't sound so good at some parts of the song, Sarah was great.
Jerson and Matt, I didn't like either.
Kelsie and Brittany for me was the best battle that I watched, it was truly GOAT both was singing and I was cheering for Brittany & a bit of Kelsie but I always knew that Brittany would win.

Casey :sobbing:

Dani12
May 7th, 2012, 01:37 PM
I like Casey, but Emma-Louise has a flawless voice. Shame they had to go up against each other. Sarah/Yianna was just a screaming match most of the song.

jack21
May 7th, 2012, 01:39 PM
Bad decision to let Casey go. She is better than half of Seals final 6, although Emma was fantastic in that battle. Keith Should have paired Kelsie with someone else so he could have had both her and Brittany.

Dani12
May 7th, 2012, 01:48 PM
The pairings were odd, they all just paired acts with other similar acts...I wonder if they were told to do this :confused:

jack21
May 7th, 2012, 02:23 PM
Yea it is strange. You would think that the coaches would want to have the strongest acts in their final six but each of them had one or two standout performers who missed out simply because they were paired against someone stronger.

NeeemZ
May 7th, 2012, 02:46 PM
The pairings were expected based on who was left at this stage. I think it was a decent show tonight.

My thoughts:
Carmen / Michelle - Both were solid and I think it was quite even for most of the song but Carmen sold me.
Kieren / Sam - Terrible song choice by Seal. Kieren performed as if it was karaoke whilst to me, Sam didn't feel as comfortable on stage.
Brittany / Kelsie - I'm sick of hearing Adele in talent shows. I felt like it was a boring performance with nothing much separating them. Brittany has more potential so I'm glad she went through.
Matt / Jerson - Matt owned the performance even if his vocals weren't as clean as Jerson. Jerson never took control like Matt did.
Yianna / Sarah - I hated this. Yianna over-performed, while Sarah over-sung. I felt like it was gonna break out into a cat fight.
Darren / Brett - This was my favourite performance of the night. Both did an excellent job with a song, which allowed them to showcase their strengths. In saying that, I love Darren's style and voice. I wanted him to keep singing.
Ben / Ashleigh & Jesse - I felt that at the beginning, Ben was overpowered by the duo but when he was able to sing solo, he ran laps around them. I think Ashleigh is a great singer who sung well but Jesse was the liability. It felt like Ashleigh was the star and Jesse was a backing vocalist.
Casey / Emma-Louise - It was a great battle where Emma-Louise had done everything to perfection and had dominated the performance. I think Casey had more potential than EL but Emma Louise is aware of her performing abilities whereas Casey seemed to be a bit shy, which cost her.

Fatai wasn't too bad. It was her clearest vocal performance so far as she wasn't trying to emote.

Matt won't last long like Dani said. It was a poor performance where he shouted rather than sang.

Karise was good. I liked the fact that she didn't belt the song and showed a softer side vocally. She'll go far.

Michael wasn't bad. I feel as though he has a lot of potential from what he showed tonight. Great song choice by Seal as well.

Danni was solid for most of the song. She looked awkward trying to perform with her black cape but vocally, it was good. Does anyone else think she looks a bit like Snooki?

It's a bit different to the US version. Instead of 3 out of 6 being saved, the top 2 will go through. Out of the 4 remaining, I'm presuming they'll have a last chance performance where each unsaved contestant will get to sing a song and the coach will make their 2 saves.

The US version has three going through with the coach making one save from the bottom three, sending two home. So it's the exact same as the US except the coaches get to save two.

From Seal's team, I think Chris and Sam will go although personally, I'd stick with Sam for one more round and get rid of Fatai. Knowing Seal, that won't happen at all.

I think Delta has a difficult job. If it's based on tonight's performances, Ben and Matt for sure. But I can't see Delta eliminating Ben although I think Matt is as good as gone. I also think she'll stick by Glenn and get rid of Danni because she was weaker than Viktoria tonight and I'd wanna stick by Viktoria as a wildcard.

Delta looked so dark yesterday :spit: i think she shoukdnt do those spray tans,

:lol: I was thinking the same thing :tape: she's still totally gorgeous though. I'm so obsessed with this show... I was worried once the blind auditions & battles were over I would get bored/sick of it but last night was really good. Viktoria has really grown on me i loved her last night! Team Delta had more standouts than Seal IMO which I didn't expect. She seemed to get her artists to connect to their lyrics a lot more (besides Ben who was terrible)

My Ratings

Team Seal

1.Karise
2.Emma-Louise
3.Fatai
4.Michael
5.Chris
6.Sam

*Karise has shot straight to #1 on the ITUNES chart :yeah: I could listen to her voice all day long
*I have never been fussed on Emma-Louise but she was very stunning vocally tonight
*Fatai hit all the notes perfectly but didn't blow me away.
*Michael was the best of the boys and while he seemed a bit shy/awkward I found it kind of endearing
*Chris is SO over-rated. He irritates me and he's not that great of a singer.
*Sam was so corny and insincere, he seems like a nice boy but I found myself cringing the whole performance.


Team Delta

1.Viktoria
2.Rachael
3.Glen
4.Dani
5.Matt
6.Ben

*I always knew Viktoria had potential but she'd been a bit inconsistent/over-singing a bit, but she nailed this one. So glad she got through over creepy Peta!
*Rachael had a few pitchy/bumpy moments but she was so connected to the song and the emotion got my quite choked up! :bigcry:
*I thought Glen would never make an impression as he has just seemed too "polished" & backup-singer-y. But his vocal was gorgeous tonight and more authentic.
*I'm still pissed at Delta because I really wanted Sarah to go through over Dani :fiery: but she sang that very difficult song very well.
*I enjoyed Matt's performance more than his previous two but was still fairly average.
*Ben was out of tune for basically ALL of the verses and I can't believe nobody sad anything :unsure: Seems like a very genuine and likeable boy but he should audition for Glee.


IMO the girls kicked the guys asses! And this is reflected on the ITUNES charts today with only Glen making any kind of impact. It should be Sam & Chris going from team Seal but I think Chris is a big drawcard so Michael might get sent home. Same with Ben on team Delta.... he might be substituted for Dani.

3. Rachael

Ben and Matt the clear bottom 2 for me in Team Delta, both were terrible.

Seal picked the wrong song for Sam, it didn't suit him at all IMO. I didn't like what Michael did to that Beatles song.

It really shit me how the judges said everyone was fantastic even when they weren't, and gave undeserved standing ovations.

I will be interested to see how they do it next Monday. I'm sure the judges will put people through based on publicity eg. Chris Sebastian and Rachel, instead of on performances. I think they will also try to create about an equal number of girls and guys in the next stage, even though based on performances the girls were clearly superior.

Sam
Emma Louise
Michael
Chris

Team Delta:
Viktoria
Ben
Danni
Rachael
Glenn
Matt

PS has anyone else noticed how Rachael's first name is just her last name spelt backwards? Weird. Also, I can't help but see Kristen Stewart whenever I look at Karise.

Not sure why some of these people are on this show as they are already in the industry and some already have established careers.

Is it the money? The exposure? For either reason, it would be a bad thing. If you're in the industry already and you know you can sing, why not just try to get a career going rather than going on a TV show?

If you're a 16-year-old absolute nobody, ok I can see the point. But not the likes of Chris Sebastian, Mahalia and Carmen Smith.

Some people have said that this was just a set up to get her exposure and she'll probably be coming out with an album soon.

There's a big difference between being good and being what a record label wants.

Obviously a lot of Australian artists go through Triple J, but I'd say most of these people are too mainstream to go down that route.

Delta is the favourite to win because of Rachael.

Song choices for Monday nights show are out: Now to figure out who is singing what!

"Wherever I Lay My Hat" - Paul Young
"Sweet Child O' Mine" - Guns N Roses
"I Can't Make You Love Me" - Bonnie Raiit
"Different Worlds" - Jes Hudak & Georges Krikes (The song they used in all the promos) !
"Lonely Boy" - The Black Keys
"Fight For You" - Jason DeRulo
"Lego House" - Ed Sheeran
"Listen" - Beyonce
"Turn Me On" - Nicki Minaj & David Guetta
"Forever Young" - Youth Group
"Somebody That I Used To Know" - Goyte & Kimbra

I hope Prinnie sings Nicki Minaj :inlove: and I Hope Laura sings Goyte. Lakyn would do Lego House really well too I think.

If these people didn't need the show, we would have heard of them already. I'd say most of the public hadn't heard of any of them before they came on the show.

The point of Chris Sebastian and Mahalia Barnes being on the show is that they wanted to be recognised for their voice rather than their names or their connections, and they wanted to prove they could do it without the help of these connections.

You still have to prove that whether you go through TV or through connections because at the end of the day it is your talent that's going to speak.

My recap of the show:

Darren: Great song choice, sang really well although I thought he'd be a bit more confident because he was pitchy at times.
Prinnie: I didn't enjoy it much. It really missed the mark during the chorus, which is sad because she sang well towards the end.
Adam: Definitely improved from the battle round. The song choice was great and he definitely stepped up although still didn't appear confident.
Sarah: Make or break song but delivered from start to finish. I couldn't fault this at all.
Jimmy: He sounded a lot like Jimmy Barnes imitating Axl Rose. He's got vocal ability but not my style at all.
Ben H: Surprise of the night. Great song choice by Joel because it played to Ben's strengths. Again, couldn't really fault the performance.
Taga: It wasn't a bad performance but the song didn't help him much. In saying that, he improved as the song went on.
Laura: This didn't really click at all. It got a bit too theatrical at times and her approach to the song was very hit and miss.
Diana: A great vocal performance who will probably go far although she does nothing for me.
Lakyn: Disappointed. He looked awkward and sang as if he didn't really know what to do. It was average.
Brittany: Great performance to cap off the night.

I agree, Seal and Delta made the right decisions. For a while I thought Delta was going to pick Ben, but thankfully she didn't! Danni I thought performed really well but she doesn't have as much of a fan base as the others.

Chris and Glenn won't last long in their respective groups, I predict both of them will be eliminated next unless they do something amazing next time.

I agree in the sense that the right decisions were made although I don't know how much more Danni and Chris have to offer. Danni's only sung 'big' vocal songs but hasn't really taken off on any occasion. Same as Chris although his battle round should be ignored because that was largely Seal's fault.

I believe Chris is already dead man walking on Team Seal regardless of his performance (to be completely fair, any guy chosen by Seal last night would've been dead man walking) whereas Danni may have a chance to make Final 2 although I'd say the odds are very slim.

Karise - Nothing's Real But Love. I like her version more than the original.
Lakyn - Big Jet Plane. Listened to his songs to see what the hype was about.... and loved it lol.

Proven wrong. Sarah SMASHED it.

My ratings for the night

Team Keith

1. Diana
2. Brittany
3. Darren
4. Adam
5. Taga
6. Jimmy

* Diana was a huge surprise... I actually wanted Jaz to get in over her at the battle rounds but she was great
* Brittany was flawless but her endless tweets about loving Jesus & Christian related things are starting to IRRITATE me. I have no problem with people of any religion and no problem with being proud of it, but it's literally in every single tweet that she posts = overkill.
* I would probably never buy Darren's record as his voice is a little too dated for me, but it is very strong.
* Adam improved from his disastrous battle round but I'm still on the fence.
* Taga was out of tune most of the song and though he seems like a lovely guy is out of his depth.
* Jimmy was a hot mess and seems like one in general.

Brittany & Darren will get through on public vote and Keith will save Diana & Adam. Sending Taga & Jimmy home.

Team Joel

1. Sarah
2. Ben
3. Prinnie
4. Laura
5. Laykn

*I have liked Sarah since her first audition but had no idea she had that in her. Her voice is dynamite.
*I have a real soft spot for Ben, his voice isn't the most impressive but I always seem to connect with him & enjoy his performances.
* Prinnie got screwed over by the song choice. On paper i see why they chose it as it's very current and explosive.... on the radio. For a live vocal it was a bad song choice.
* Laura is one of my favourites and like Prinnie that song on paper was great for her, but it was a bit over-acted and didn't really work which is a shame.
* Laykn was terrible. He does have something special but none of it turned up last night. The whole song was completely flat and his diction is terrible. I couldn't understand a word he was singing.

Sarah & Laykn will go through (due to his popularity) with public vote. Joel will save Ben, and i'm not 100% who he will chose over Prinnie & Laura.... I guess Prinnie.

I think I'm alone in saying this, but I think Sarahs performance is overrated. She did the best she could and didn't make any errors, but I think her voice isn't powerful enough to truly pull that song off. She sang it the same as Beyonce, only it wasn't as good as Beyonces voice is better.

Lakyn was the worst of the night, but he seems to have a lot of fan girls/boys who will buy anything he sings, so he will get through.

I'm sad as I think either Laura or Prinnie will go, and they are my two faves from this team. I will be mad if Prinnie is screwed over by Joel and his song choice. It really didn't give Prinnie anything to work with to show off what she can do.

Joels team is the hardest to pick in terms of who is going home, at their best I think all are of a similar standard. It would be even harder to pick if Carmen was still there.

I really wanted to like Lakyns performance as I really like the song but it was not good. I disliked Lauras performance more but at least she performed even if it was creepy. Lakyn looked overwhelmed and just wondered around the stage. He needed to engage the audience more. I like the tone of his voice but the phrasing and his pronunciation of words is horrible at times. He'll get through though.

I really liked Diana and Brittany. They'll go through as will Darren. Im not sure who the other one would be. Team Joel is so hard to pick. I would think Lakyn and Sarah would go through on public votes. Tough decision for Joel who to pick.

Prinnie should have gone on X-Factor, it would have suited her better I think. She is an incredible performer and has star quality. While her voice is still very good it's quite generic, which is going to hurt her in this competition. She could probably win X-Factor.

I see what you're saying about Sarah's performance. Judging it against Beyonce's version and some others who have performed it on these types of shows it wasn't of the same quality, but judging it against her other performances and what I thought she was capable of it was a standout.

"Someone To Watch Over Me" - Ella Fitzgerald
"Ave Maria" - Beyonce
"When Love Takes Over" - Kelly Rowland
"Landslide" - Fleetwood Mac
"I Can't Stand The Rain" - Seal :lol:
"The Look Of Love" - Burt Bacharach

Pretty strange choices if you ask me :tape:

It's team Seal & Delta obviously.

I'll make my predictions:

"Closer" - Chris
"Smells Like Teen Spirit" - Viktoria (but maybe the slowed down piano version or something like Tori Amos did)
"Someone To Watch Over Me" - Rachael
"Ave Maria" - Fatai
"When Love Takes Over" - Danni
"Landslide" - Karise
"I Can't Stand The Rain" - Glenn
"The Look Of Love" - Emma-Louise

Last week Diana must have changed her song as "Love On Top" wasn't in the original list. So .... this may not be concrete.

The judges really need to find some middle ground between crappy dance-pop songs that nobody can make sound good live and boring old ballads that don't go anywhere. There are some really unique voices in the competition and these song choices just aren't bringing out the best in them. How about some stuff from lesser known artists. Personally I'd like to hear the girls singing some stuff from people like the Jezabels, Kimbra, Lana Del Rey or Laura Marling.

I really love Brittany. She's been my favourite (along with Casey who went last week :sad:) since the auditions but Dianna really surprised me this week. :eek: She was amazing! :worship: I didn't really care that much for many of the other performances. Sort of a flop week compared to the previous one.

I still can't believe the awful song choice for Prinnie. :hysteric: She could have done SOOOO many better songs!

My predictions before the live show tonight.

Team Keith:
Public's Saves: Brittany, Darren
Keith's Saves: Diana, Adam
Eliminated: Jimmy, Taga

It's really between Taga and Adam. Jimmy doesn't really stand a chance. Taga didn't really step up whereas Adam did.

Team Joel:
Public's Saves: Sarah, Lakyn
Joel's Saves: Ben, Prinnie
Eliminated: Laura

This is definitely a tough one because Lakyn was by far the worst performer last week so it will be interesting to see whether his fan base is strong enough to push him through. Either way, Joel will save him. Laura and Prinnie also didn't light up either whereas Ben was solid. It's definitely between Prinnie and Laura and I think that Joel will stick with Prinnie. It wouldn't surprise me if Joel saves both and Ben is eliminated.

I like Lakyn and not because he is good looking, I actually dont think hes that fantastic looking. I just like how calm he is and the tone of his voice, but I think he really needs his guitar on stage. I liked Laura though, even though she butchered that song last week. I wish all of team Joel could have gone though.

Yeah I didnt listen to it I admit. Unfortunately alot of people probably were turned off by how she performed that song so didnt bother with the recording. Lakyn has a good fanbase already so they'd download his stuff no matter how he sounded. My friend got his recording and he sounded better but the way he sings some of the words, and the phrasing was still a little off.

My thoughts on tonight:

Team Seal:
Chris - It was a good performance although I don't think he'll ever be able to shake off the Guy tag because he sounds just like Guy when he's singing well.
Emma-Louise - Safe song choice and a good performance. It wasn't bad at all but I felt like I'd seen this before from her.
Fatai - Great vocal delivery, she's definitely improved from the blind and battle rounds. I like the fact that she's singing rather than trying to add emphasis on emotion. My big concern is that she seemed quiet at times as if she wasn't confident. It was probably the performance of the night for me.
Karise - Personally, this was probably her worst performance. It felt as though she didn't know whether to be soft or be soulful so it became an awkward hybrid of both at times.

Team Delta:
Danni - I liked that Delta gave her a different style of song and for the most of it, Danni did a good job although it wasn't great. There were a few pitch problems though.
Viktoria - Interesting arrangement, interesting song choice, disappointing performance. Vocally, it was all over the place.
Glenn - I enjoyed it. It felt very Timberlake like with the outfit and performance. The dancers definitely added to the performance.
Rachael - She was definitely in the zone tonight. Not much else to say. I do wish Delta would change things up with her though because like Emma Louise, I felt like I'd seen this performance before. She didn't showcase anything new that we hadn't seen or heard before.

My ratings for tonight:

Team Seal:

1. Fatai - the best performance of the night for me, I had to go onto the website to listen to it again after the show. It was just so beautiful and the vocals were perfect.
2. Chris - the first time I have actually enjoyed his performance on the show, he really is working hard and trying to improve each time.
3. Karise - probably her worst performance on this show, although it still wasn't bad. She sang it well but the song choice was a bit boring and it didn't really go anywhere.
4. Emma Louise - I found this song really boring, Seal could have picked a better and less daggy song. Can't fault her performance though.

Team Delta:

1. Rachael - beautiful performance, but she tends to keep singing the same kind of songs. I wonder if she could sing anything more upbeat.
2. Viktoria - I enjoyed the arrangement and her interpretation of this song, but she tends to overact and get a bit too theatrical in every performance.
3. Danni - She was good but the song didn't really suit her and she seemed a bit out of place. It's so sexist how women over 30 are supposed to try to act "young and sexy". I bet no one is going to tell Darren Percival he needs to act "young and sexy" to win votes.
4. Glenn - I love that song, but that was weak. He did the best he could though.

I think seriously, the best singing on the night was from Seal and Delta in the group performances. They really showed up the wannabes who were singing with them.

It's really tough now only two can go through from each group, and only one on public vote. I hope they hurry up soon and mix the groups so the weaker groups get eliminated faster.

In Seal's team, I can't see anyone beating Karise's popularity, she will win the public vote no matter what she does. Seal will pick either Fatai or Emma Louise, tough to say who, I'm hoping Fatai.

For Delta's group, it is the same as no one will beat Rachael on public vote. Delta should pick Viktoria, but she might end up picking Glenn due to their friendship and the fact that she seems to love everything he does.

Overall the weakest performance show so far I thought.

My ratings

Team Seal

1.Fatai - W-O-W she finally blew me away. I was hanging on every moment of the song and was by far the best of the night. The high notes were absolute perfection.
2.Karise - By far her weakest performance, but like Seal sad her at 50% is still better than most at 80%. I think Seal trying to push her to sing softer is a mistake... I prefer her growly raspy vocal and I hope she gets to do it again. She's still #1 on ITUNES this morning so whatever she does.... she's got it in the bag I reckon.
3.Chris - I still can't stand him, i'm sorry his voice is EXACTLY like Guy's.... and while it was his best performance still didn't excite me.
4.Emma-Louise - This one was quite dull and I went and did the washing up.

Team Delta

1.Rachael - I disagree with people saying she should try up-tempo.... she doesn't have the voice for it. She can have a good career singing these kinds of songs and her trying to do something current/hip would be a disaster IMO... but there are better songs out there than the one she did last night. Still beautiful though.
2.Viktoria - Not as good as last week. I loved the song choice for her actually and I actually wish she did the straight Tori Amos version without all the guitar etc as that's where I feel she lost her intensity. I actually really like that she's so theatrical I think it suits her. Sadly i think she won't go any further :(
3.Glenn - Great song choice, performed it solidly.
4.Dani - She's a good singer but that's a very tough song and it was quite pitchy in parts.... no way she'll go through.

I would say Karise will get public vote and hopefully Seal picks Fatai after her performance.... but could just as easily pick Chris for publicity.

Rachael will get the public vote for sure and I think Delta will go with Glenn.... even though Viktoria has the most potential.

I think it was a pretty average night to be honest. Next week is going to be epic with Sarah, Lakyn and Brittany performing :D Excited.

Team Delta:
1. Viktoria = Exciting as always, I really liked the arrangement.
2. Rachael = Sounded good, but slightly boring as always.
3. Danni = I like the song choice, but she is out of her league here.
4. Glenn = Not a fan, can't stand him to be honest.

Rachael will probably go through on public vote, and I'm hoping Viktoria gets saved.

Team Seal:
1. Fatai = Standout performance of the night for sure. Love her.
2. Karise = By default because the other 2 were bad. She was good, but she's done better.
3. Emma Louise = Boring, but nice.
4. Chris = An inferior Guy, please leave now.

Karise will get saved, and I'm hoping Seal picks Fatai to stay as she truly deserves it. He may go with Emma Louise due to her popularity though.

I agree with Umberella that will be the final 4 most likely.... unless Laykn has another total shocker and Sarah gives the performances of a lifetime. Darren is a slight chance to upset Brittney but he'll really have to pull out a big performance.

Song Choices for Monday Night:

"I'm With You" - Avril Lavigne
"How Will I Know" - Whitney Houston
"Forever" - Chris Brown
"Friday I'm In Love" - The Cure
"I Believe" - Stevie Wonder
"I Can't Make You Love Me" - Bonnie Raiit
"Straight Lines" - Silverchair
"Romeo & Juliet" - Dire Straits

Some Strange choices in there again... lol

Bit harder to predict this week I reckon!

"I'm With You" - Sarah??? I like the song but can't see it going anywhere
"How Will I Know" - Prinnie surely.... can't see it being a good performance either
"Forever" - I think Laykn will do a slowed down version ala Boyce Avenue which should work quite well
"Friday I'm In Love" - Darren
"I Believe" - Diana
"I Can't Make You Love Me" - Brittany
"Straight Lines" - Ben
"Romeo & Juliet" - Adam

It's going to be a much tougher results show than the one tonight where it was quite obvious who would go through.

Team Keith

1. Diana
2. Adam
3. Darren
4. Brittany

* Diana proved she is the real deal tonight, she's got everything..... but a fan base :confused: I hope Keith takes her through again.
* I loved Adam tonight... I've always loved his voice but never his performances - but this was a winner for me! Won't go through though I don't think.
* Darren was great again but I wouldn't buy his music .... he's great it's just not my thing.
* Brittany was a standout last week but Keith was too experimental with her song choice this week I think and it might hurt her. Just didn't sit right with me and took away everything special about her.

I believe Darren will get the public vote with no problems... and i hope Keith choses Diana over Brittany, she has so much class and substance.

Team Joel

1. Sarah
2. Ben
3. Prinnie
4. Laykn

*Sarah wasn't as good as last week but still really good. I was worried when i heard the song choice but I really liked the arrangement. She has so much confidence in her voice and she could be a great pop artist.
*I'll admit I'm a little bit in love with Ben so I'd probably like anything he did. He was connected to the song again. I thought it was a strange choice at first but I liked his verson.
* Prinnie got screwed over by the song choice AGAIN. There's no way she will go through. I feel for her as I think she has a lot to offer.
* I was a fan of Laykn at first but he is just out of his depth now. Very pitchy again and I didn't like the song for him.

I think Ben might actually get the public vote this time for some reason. Laykn could just as easily get it still though. Joel will choose Sarah to go through I think with whichever boy the public chooses.

For me, Darren and Sarah absolutely killed it tonight. They were just incredible. I would buy anything they release.

Prinnie should've been given a song, which didn't need to be performed with choreography. It didn't work last time and even though she did better this week, it wasn't as good as everyone else.

I actually feel as though everyone on Keith's team has a solid claim as to being in the Final 2. Adam stepped it up immensely and Diana did a great job. For me, Brittany didn't do a bad job. Technically, she sung the song well but she just lacked confidence. It was still a bad song choice.

Joel's team similarly did well. Lakyn returned to form with a great performance although I think Ben outdid him again.

Without a doubt, Team Keith and Joel were miles ahead of Team Seal and Delta last week.

My rankings:
Team Keith:
1. Darren
2. Adam
3. Diana
4. Brittany

Team Joel:
1. Sarah
2. Ben
3. Lakyn
4. Prinnie

Delta is obviously letting her friendship with Glenn cloud her judgment, because there's no way he deserved to go through instead of Viktoria, or even Danni.

Darren was the best of the night for me, followed by Diana. Sarah and Ben were also good, the rest were forgettable.

Yeah Im pretty upset about this, whilst it wasn't Victoria's best performances last week she still has so much more potential and actually has a chance to make it in the industry. Glenn while he has been singing well (forgive me for being rude) will never be anything but a back up singer. He has no "star quality' and his voice is completely generic. It was a really poor choice from Delta. Not that any of them have a chance against Rachael anyway :lol: but still.

Here's the ITUNES results folks

1. Darren
3. Diana
4. Sarah
6. Ben
7. Adam
18. Laykn
27. Brittany
149. Prinnie

Pretty much agree with that. What a kick in the guts for Prinnie (most of the contestants auditions are still beating her :tape:) I stand by my statement that she should have gone on X-Factor.... she would have cleaned up there. These Itunes charts have been 100% correct with determining the public vote so looks like Darren & Sarah will go through. Hopefully Diana & Ben are chosen by the judges. Good to see Adam up so high but a little too late. I was sure Laykn would sail to the top of Joel's group but looks like his journey may be over.

My rankings:

Team Keith:
1. Darren - best of the night, love his voice, and as the performance built he really took the audience with him.
2. Diana - second best of the night, she sang it perfectly and I could really feel her emotion, it was touching. The lyrics of the song are appropriate for her on this show too, seeing that she is performing well but people don't seem to love her like the others
3. Adam - good performance but not really a standout compared to the others.
4. Brittany - I didn't like this, I feel like she should have performed more to the audience and rocked out a bit with that song, but I don't really think she is capable of that, she is more suited to slow ballads. I don't think even her big fan base can save her now.

Team Joel:
1. Sarah - Great vocal performance again to back up the last week
2. Ben - I didn't expect this song to be good, but he really nailed it. I could really connect with him, and it added something to know that the song meant a lot to him because of his brother's death.
3. Lakyn - another blah performance from him, didn't really go anywhere. His voice can't compare to Robert Smith when singing that song, and that song is kind of boring if the voice singing it isn't special. I'm over Lakyn after two lacklustre performances and he should not be going through.
4. Prinnie - screwed by the song choice again. The only time I've seen Forever work on these shows is when they sing a stripped down acoustic version. Otherwise there is nothing you can do to make that song stand out. I don't know why Joel keeps picking these autotuned songs for Prinnie and makes her dance while singing, and gives all the big vocal songs to Sarah. I'm sure Prinnie could also do well with a big vocal song if given the chance.

Predictions:

Darren gets the public vote, Keith saves Diana
Sarah gets the public vote, Joel saves Ben

Hopefully that is what happens anyway, because those 4 are the ones who most deserve to go through based on performances.

For me it was:

Team Joel:
1) Sarah = Not as good as last week, but very solid. She has such a beautiful voice.
2) Ben = I find him quite forgettable to be honest, but the song choice was really good. I don't think anyone could make me dislike that song.
3) Lakyn = Shame he's not living up to his potential, Big Jet Plane was incredible and probably one of the best songs of the season. Hopefully he gets back to that level next week if he's still around.
4) Prinnie = I don't know how this chick got in over Mahalia or why Joel got rid of Laura last week. Epic waste of space.

Team Keith:
1) Diana = Beautiful. I don't see her being successful commercially, but she performs really well and connects beautifully.
2) Brittany = I think the reason everyone was so disappointed in Brittany was because her performance last week was just so much better. This performance was still really good though. Terrible song choice, but her voice is so beautiful.
3) Darren = I don't like him or his style, but I can't deny that it was a good performance. I still personally do not favour him too much.
4) Adam = Completely forgettable and boring. Almost as irrelevant as Prinnie.

I am hoping that Sarah & Lakyn go through from team Joel and Brittany & Diana from team Keith. Not sure if that will happen though. Which is crazy considering how Lakyn and Brittany were such clear favourites just a week ago :/

Huntress55
Jun 5th, 2012, 08:12 AM
Darren will win on public vote I think but then its really hard to see who Keith will pick. Diana has put in great performances but can she win the whole thing, does she have a big enough fan base? Adam is great but kind of same thing. Im sure Keith will have learnt his lesson with Brittany so if he picks her he wont experiment with song choice again.

As for Team Joel. Atm it looks like Sarah or Ben will go through on public vote unless all Lakyns fans start voting nonstop. Prinnie is pretty much gone. If Sarah gets through it'll be tough for Joel to pick between Ben and Lakyn. They're both pretty boys (well according to most people). I think Ben has a great voice but Lakyn is really unique. Giving him his guitar this week was a good choice but I still didnt love the song they picked for him. If say Ben or Lakyn gets through on public vote Joel will pick Sarah, as he should.

It looks like things are shaking up on iTunes this week, whereas last week's winners were predictable:

(1) Darren Percival (Keith) - I Believe
(2) Diana Rouvas (Keith) - I Can't Make You Love Me
(4) Ben (Joel) - I'm With You
(5) Sarah (Joel) - How Will I know
(6) Adam (Keith) - Romeo and Juliet
(11) Lakyn (Joel) - Friday I'm in Love
(19) Brittany (Keith) - Straight Lines
(95) Prinnie (Joel) - Forever

It seems like its Darren vs Diana for the public vote for Keith, whilst its Ben vs Sarah for Joel.

If Ben goes through, then I think Joel will go with Sarah as his pick. Otherwise it will be tough to pick between Lakyn and Ben as Huntress has said.

Darren seems locked to get the public vote, and he still has 3 of his previous Voice performances charting on iTunes as well as currently topping the chart. Keith will have a tough decision choosing between Brittany and Diana.

P.S. I feel sorry for Prinnie :hug:

"Breathing" - Jason Derulo
"A Song For You" - Leon Russell
"Here's Where I Stand" - Tiffany Taylor


I'm hoping Rachael does Halleluja :inlove: the Rickie-Lee Jones song will 90% be Karise.

Does anyone remember Casey Donovan singing "Here's Where I Stand" on Australian Idol? It was such a great moment whoever has been given that song has hit the jackpot it has "moments" galore.

No just 1 still. Some very strange song choices again :tape: maybe they will work out on the night.

Fatai, Karise and Rachael could all do Hallelujah really good.
As for Breathing could be for Glenn.

I've done a bit of searching and there are a few ex-idols in the voice and the last few x-factors!! :lol: I guess it's never really over you just have to wait a few years (or months) until people forget about you and move on to the next show.

I think Heaven is for Glenn. Delta seems to be picking the cheesy love songs from the 90s for him.

I hope Halleluja is for Fatai, keeping with the religious theme.

Love Don't Live Here Anymore would be good for Diana.

I don't know who else would suit Closer though. IMO only Glenn does.

Lakyn - Too fast for him
Ben - Not his type
Darren - No way
Adam - Not this style

Apparently Ben Hazlewood was on NZ Idol and came 4th.

There is also a guy called Barry Southgate who repeatedly auditioned for Australian Idol but never made it to the final 12, I also saw him auditioning for The Voice but no one turned around

Yeah Barry is a full of himself little twat. He actually whinged when nobody turned around & Joel pretty much said 'just because you're a pretty boy doesn't mean I should want you in my team' totally shot him down I loved it. So happy with those who went through on team Joel & Keith they were the right choices. No surprise to see Fatai & Glen performing first as they have no chance to make the final

Darren did good considering he was sick. It wasn't as good as last week. It was more subdued. Rachael really struggled though.

I am really feeling for Delta right now p.s the country is hating on her so bad right now and whichever artist she choses tonight there is going to be backlash. If she choses Glen (who did have a better performance) it's going to be "it's only because he was her backup singer ......" and if she choses Rachael its going to be "Glen was the better performer she only chose Rachael because she's blind" I can just see it now, poor thing.

My take on the performances tonight:

Fatai: She improved a hell of a lot since she auditioned. It was a good performance. Technically, she was on song.
Karise: Better than her last performance. It was solid although personally, it's such an overdone song that it's lost all meaning to me so I didn't 'feel' the performance as much as others.

Who was better: Karise.
Who deserved to go through: Karise

Glenn: He definitely proved that Delta made the right choice in bringing him through because tonight was his best performance. Great song choice.
Rachael: When I heard the song choice, I immediately thought Delta was essentially grooming her into the Final 2 spot. Again, it was a comfort zone song for Rachael but she struggled a lot but I'd attribute that to the flu. Other than that, it wasn't her best.

Who was better: Glenn
Who deserved to go through: Like Petey Pan mentioned above, Delta was in a tough place with this choice. Rachael has a better chance of winning and she was more solid that Glenn prior to tonight.

Sarah: Great song choice and she delivered again. I do think It wasn't as good as last week.
Ben: It wasn't as strong as last week but this song was marginally tougher. It was still a great performance.

Who was better: Sarah
Who deserved to go through: Sarah.

Diana: It was a decent performance. The performance would've worked better without the vocal gymnastics at the end, which I felt destroyed the performance.
Darren: Safe performance. Nothing too flashy or spectacular.

Who was better: Probably Darren.
Who deserved to go through: Darren. Diana had no chance of winning.

I thought Diana was amazing, the best of the night. I can understand Keiths decision to put Darren through though, as Darren has a better chance of winning than Diana.

I think the coaches had already made their decision before the performances, based on who has the best chance of winning.

The others never really stood a chance, no matter what they did.

I think the public should have been able to vote on all 8, and then have the final 4 perform next Monday, with the audience having another week to vote. The coaches really made their decisions on who they thought the public would choose anyway.

Overall I thought last night's performances were pretty poor, none of them did as well as their last performance, except maybe Diana.

My rankings as follows:

1. Diana - she was fantastic, sang the blues like a natural, by far the best of the night. Flawless vocal performance as usual. If she put out a blues album I would buy it.
2. Glenn - a lot better than what I was expecting, it was great that he showed that he could also play the piano and put in a emotional performance. I still don't think he could have a successful career as a singer in his own right, he doesn't really have that star quality.
3. Fatai - she was kind of screwed by the song choice, she got a boring old disco song with no real moments in it, which she even admitted that she didn't like and couldn't connect to, while Karise got a legendary song. She did the best she could with what she had though. I think she would have done Hallelujah so much more justice than Karise, considering she likes to connect with the emotional side of songs.
4. Sarah - theoretically she had a good song, but I felt like she didn't really connect with the meaning behind the song and just tried to use it to belt out as many big notes as she possibly could.
5. Darren - he was really hindered by the flu, and also did the best he could with a boring song. He looked terrible, probably because of being sick. Not even half as good as last week.
6. Ben - he did a good job with what he had, but the perofmance was just boring and forgettable.
7. Rachael - Delta was probably hoping for memorable performance that would knock everyones socks off, but didn't happen. She did well considering she was sick but it was just boring.
8. Karise - I normally like Karise and I like this song, but I hated this. She should have sang it softly with more sensitivity in order to really express the emotion and beauty behind the song. Instead she just belted it out at full volume the whole way, and it really ruined the song for me.

Karise will win for sure, she has too big a fanbase not to.

The only one out of the other three who could have potentially challenged her was Darren, but I don't think he has a chance anymore after his subpar performance. It would have been interesting if he'd had another moment like last week, then it would have been a real contest.

My ratings:

1. Karise
I see what you mean with Karis' performance, but for me personally I've seen that song performed so many times in very similar ways, either in whispy high angelic voices or like over the top church/preacher like performances, so I actually found it refreshing to hear a totally different take on it. Whilst the song actually has quite a lot of Biblical references it really has nothing to do with the meaning of the song, it is actually about someone breaking free from their own shackles and accepting all the bad things that have happened to them and using those experiences to move on with life and finally having that moment of "halleluja" so for me Karise completely related to that and hence the reason I loved it so much, but at the same time I can see why other people would want that song performed in the more literal religious sense as that's the way most artist have chosen to interpret it.

2. Diana
It's a shame she didn't have a fan base because she consistently pretty much out-performed everyone. This was her best performance for me, she completely let go and as far as Aussie talent shows go the performance was right up there with the best we've ever had. I can see why Keith chose Darren though he knows Diana was no chance to win.

3. Sarah
She continues to impress me with her voice.... she's grown heaps since her audition and I loved the song choice. I refuse to believe Joel even knew that song I bet Nicole suggested it :lol: I don't think she was the favourite to take 1st place on team Joel so she's earned her way there. No chance in the final but I can see her having a good career. I hear a bit of Kelly Clarkson in her voice at times.

4. Fatai
Poor Fatai.... thrown out to the wolves with that song choice. It's almost like Seal wanted Karise to win so bad he couldn't risk giving Fatai a chance to out-perform her, which I completely saw right through and it's pretty unfair. Having said that she did the very best she could do with the song and actually gave a really great performance. The start was really soulful, giving it more of an edge and then she came out and really dominated the performance. She did a great job all season for a 16/17 year old.

5.Glen
This was the first performance of Glen's I genuinely enjoyed. He did take more risks with the melody/notes, and the piano really suited him he looked much more authentic then bopping around like a twat in Moves Like Jagger/Closer. His performance was better than Rachael's tonight but she's performed better every other night which had to be taken in to account & Delta also knew Rach was her only shot at winning. I don't think there's much of a market out there for Glen but I hope he gets to do something not just going back to being a session singer.

6. Ben
Got kind of screwed with the song choice as well ala Fatai.... pretty much the same situation. He's a good singer with a nice humble personality but he wasn't Grand Final potential imo so the right choice was made. He performed the song very well but it was a bit too obscure and forgettable for me. Was never really in for a chance and I think 2nd place on team Joel was a great achievement for him.


7. Rachael
Poor Rachael.... it was awkward to watch with her voice being SO restricted. Anything above mid range was just sounding croaky and sore.... absolutely nothing she could have done better really. To her credit she still WENT for those notes and was still totally committed to the song and still created a good atmosphere. That's why I ranked her above Darren. She's not totally out of the race for the title if her voice recovers and she gets that "right song" that pulls on everyones heart strings like her auditon. I can see her almost having Susan Boyle type of career (obviously not as large of a scale) but doing albums of covers in that old style she sings in, could be a good market for her. Can't see her being a "popstar"


8. Darren
He's a fine singer but his performances bore me to tears. He did well to get through the song when he was obviously vocally restricted... but at the same time... he seemed very defeated during the song (which I picked up before they said he was sick) He could have still put more emotion in to the song and he kind of just sooked his way through it I thought. Still a chance to take out the whole thing though if he recovers and gets the right song.


In conclusion Karise will pretty much have to screw up BIG time to lose this..... it's pretty much in the bag. And I'll be the first to buy her album :)

Karise has already won. She won right after her audition.

My big problem with her is that I'd never buy anything of hers or go to her concerts because her voice would irritate me after 5 minutes. She's got a voice that either connects to you or alienates you. There's no middle ground with her.

I appreciate the power she is able to bring but I think that with Karise, less is more. She can't keep 'Joplin-ing' every song. The issue is that she feels unconfident when she's not on full volume as seen with Landslide. I do agree with Experimentee and wished she had toned down her performance last night.
