Welcome everyone to the first elimination for the live rounds! Flying Solo Tonight as the Unholy Trinity of PopWrapped will be rotating the recap duties of the results show.
We start off by meeting some guy from Telescope who tells us there was something weird with the texting and online voting. They fixed the problem. However, online votes and texting votes would not be counted in this week’s results to ensure fairness. We are assured that removing these did not change the overall outcomes of the week
Well…okay than. I can smell the reality show conspiracy theory nuts already at work cooking up something.
“Hall of Fame” sung Team Blake and Team Shakira: Glee is singing this this week. This just sounds really really bad. If you want to hear a better cover check out the Glee cover. Seriously. They don’t sound really good together. It just makes me cringe. A lackluster opening all around which reminds of last night. There is no harmony here. It just sounds like a mash of bunch of voices together and I’m wincing. Just. No. Sorry.
Blake talks about how proud he is of his team. I’m not.
Well Danielle Bradbery is clearly safe because she is number three on iTunes. Of course Holly Tucker is saved.
TEAM BLAKE (AMERICA SAVE): Holly Tucker and Danielle Bradbery
Okay Blake I’m calling total bullshit. These acts sounded alike last night. Neither of these acts is different or unique! They sound alike! America vote them all off dammit!
TEAM BLAKE (COACH SAVE): The Swon Brothers
ELIMINATED (TEAM BLAKE): Justin “I Was Not Long For This Competition” Rivers
I think they’re getting the less interesting teams (Blake and Shakira) out of the way so we can focus on the more interesting teams (Adam and Usher). Just saying.
Oh God Christina Milian and I hit my mute button. They need to get someone less awkward. I feel like the coaches at this point are secretly making fun of this place.
“Finest Woman/Forever Young” Rod Stewart with Garrett Gardner, Karina Iglesias, and Josiah Hawley: Oh hell yeah. Hi Rod. Now Garrett take some notes. THIS IS HOW YOU WORK THE GROWL! Bless Rod Stewart he is still a good performer and has swag. Adam looks like he wishes he was up there. His background singers are utterly adorable. Well I don’t see Garrett, Karina or Josiah. And I am totally fine with this because I could watch Rod perform all night. He is just awesome. Oh there they are. This is a song change. Oh! Hi guys there you are! No Garrett…guys…guys watch him. Watch Rod. Oh yay he taught them something at the end!
“Only You” Cee-Lo and Juliet Sims take the stage to show these whippersnappers how it’s done. Usher seems to take notes during it. I love Juliet’s camp and her rasp is just amazing. She is definitely the breakout star from Team Cee-Lo. And I still adore her so much. This was just amazing to watch. Cee-Lo is happy to be “back home”.
No. Shakira they really weren’t “wiping the floor” with the competition. Oh sweetheart you are so nice. But no.
My prediction is Garrett and Sasha get the America save.
TEAM SHAKIRA (AMERICA SAVE): Sasha Allen and Kris Thomas
Seriously America? You save Kris Thomas? Shakira is really broken up over this. I’ll be she’ll be happy when she can’t save people anymore. She just wants to save all the poor little artists from the pound. She ultimately decides to save her favorite of the competition because she can do more with him.
TEAM SHAKIRA (COACH SAVE): Garrett Gardner
ELIMINATED (TEAM SHAKIRA): Karina Iglesias
“Don’t You Worry Child” sung by Team Usher and Team Adam: This is still awkward. I actually think it’s something with the mikes at this. Oh! The HARMONIES ARE SO MUCH BETTER HERE! And this is why Team Usher and Team Adam are awesome, America. Seriously I definitely love this a lot more than Team Shakira and Team Blake’s performance. They just sound better. Their voices actually blend together really well.
Usher is just so adorably proud of his team. I want to hug him
My prediction is that America saves Michelle and Josiah.
TEAM USHER (AMERICA SAVE): Michelle Chamuel and Vedo
SAVE JOSIAH USHER! I WANT MORE OF HIS MAN PRETTY AND HIS PRETTY VOICE! COME ON DUDE!
TEAM USHER (COACH SAVE): Josiah Hawley
ELIMINATED (TEAM USHER): Cathia
Now it’s time for Team Adam. I think that America will save Amber and Sarah. Judith Hill is not going to be saved by America. Why? America doesn’t really like Judith Hill that much. (Apparently I was wrong there. Conspiracy theorists look into this.)
TEAM ADAM (AMERICA SAVE): Judith Hill and Amber Carrington
Really? Sarah and Caroline are in the bottom two? SERIOUSLY?! OhmyGod I don’t know who to choose either. This is like Adam’s Sophie’s Choice for Season Four.
TEAM ADAM (COACH SAVE): Sarah Simmons
ELIMINATED (TEAM ADAM): Caroline Glaser
Aww. I’m going to miss Caroline Glaser. I hope that Adam gives her a record deal with 222 records. (Shut up he totally should. She’s really good.)
