Monday night was the first of the Live Rounds with Team Christina and Team Blake performing for America’s vote. There are many ways to vote- by phone, text, facebook, NBC.com and by buying the songs you liked on iTunes! I was not home to actually watch the show “live”, I instead fast forwarded through everything but the performances so I have no idea if the coaches and I agreed or disagreed and I don’t know that I’ll ever know because I probably won’t have time to re-watch and find out. Oh well, I should be around for the rest of the live rounds so the posts won’t be so half-assed 😉
Jermaine – Livin on a Prayer
Some parts of this performance seemed strained, but over all it was a good start to the show and a good performance
Chris – Bridge Over Troubled Water
I’m not in to Chris with this song. I don’t know why. I think he could have gone bigger. But it certainly wasn’t awful
RaeLyn – Wake Up Call
I don’t think she should have even made it to this round. She was out of breath and I was not a fan of this performance at all.
Moses – Stronger & Power
Another out of breath performance. I was not digging it.
Naia – Turning Tables
I really like her voice and I liked this performance, though it probably is not my favorite from her.
Lindsey – Somebody I Used To Know
Ok performance, she seemed overpowered by the background at times.
Jordis – Alone
In the beginning when she was singing softly, she was being overpowered by the background. But she did much better in the middle thr0ugh the end of the song.
Sera – Find Your Love
Wow. So many shirtless men! I like her, but I was not really a fan of this performance.
Erin – Living For The City
I loved her performance! Best of the night!
Ashley – Right Through You
Another great performance. A few off moments, but nothing too major that made it any less great.
Charlotte – Misery Loves Company
Jesse – What A Wonderful World
A very wonderful way to end the night!
The singers I think will be advancing to the next round are:
We found out that Erin, Jermaine and RaeLyn were going through for Team Blake. I was 2 for 3 there.
Naia, Jordis and Charlotte would have to perform for Blake’s choice.
For Team Christina: Jesse, Lindsey, Chris. 3 for 3!
Of Blake’s 3, I had Naia and Charlotte on my list, but I kind of think that Jordis did the best of the 3 sing for your life performances! It’s no surprise that Blake chose her too – but that puts me at 50% correct choosing for Team Blake!
Of Christina’s 3 – I have Ashley as my pick. Based on the 3 performances, I stick with Ashley. Christina’s pick of Ashley putting me at 100% for my picks with Team Christina!
