So, as usual I FF'd through a majority of the performance show. What was this "shocking" announcement that the commercial touted?
As for the performances, Terry picked the perfect time to really knock it out of the park. That is one of those songs that can make or break you and he surprisingly nailed it.
Cassadee once again IMO was okay. I just don't see her as anything different than what it already out there. She was better than Trevin, but if they chose to go final 2 instead of 3, she should have been the next one cut.
THAT, was the perfomance I wanted to see from Nick since the beginning. Ever since the battle rounds ended, there were two competitors that I wanted to see perform a certain singer's song. First was Cody who I thought needed to do Freddie Mercury. I know a lot of you didn't like him or that performance, but I thought he did a fairly good job with it. Let's not forget this is Freddie we are talking about, so of course no one will come close to living up to him, but I think Cody did a fine job.
The 2nd one I said to myself as soon as I heard him was Nick needed to do Joe Cocker. As soon as I heard which song it was he was singing, I was thrilled. My only complaint is him not attempting to hit the signature high note "to me" ending. I would have loved to see him try it. Even if his voice cracked, that would be okay because it's not like Joe Cocker sang that part perfectly either.
Anyway, even though most expect Cass to win this, it wouldn't shock me if Terry and Cass split votes because of them being on the same team and Nick ends up squeaking through with the victory.
