Awful, simply awful! I cannot believe some of the contestants that got cut last night.Team Adam
While not a fan of James Wolpert (especially after butchering Boston's "More Than a Feeling"), he did do enough to warrant moving on.
I'm a fan of Tessanne, so to me it was a no brainer moving forward.
As I said earlier, Grey looked hot, but didn't connect with that song so I was fine with her going.
Here is where I strongly disagree. While I wasn't as big a fan of Preston as some of you appear to be, he did have chops. That was an absolute travesty for Adam to pick boring Will over him. Hell, even when Adam said "My choice will probably surprise a lot of you" you could see on Preston's face that he knew he was gone. What a joke.Team Blake
Nic Hawk had no business being this far to begin with so I was perfectly fine with him going.
I'm sorry, but to me Austin and Cole are one in the same. I honestly don't see any difference between them. Don't get me wrong, I like them both, but I don't think they both needed to move on. One would have been enough.
I picked Ray to be the eventual winner so I'm fine with him moving forward.
How the hell does Shelbie Z get cut? That girl has some pipes on her. What's the matter, too fat to take a chance on moving forward? Team Christina
Jacquie and Matthew are absolute dynamos and were no brainers moving forward.
I was fine with Stephanie going because like Will she was bounced around from team to team, so it was obvious she didn't make a strong impression as she moved on.
A little bummed that Olivia didn't make it and a bit surprised Christina didn't go with her. With Blake letting Shelbie go, this was a perfect opportunity for someone other than Blake to have a female country artist and we all know how America loves Country. She made a big mistake there IMO.
That leaves Josh. Did Christina not listen to his performance of "Crazy"? Seriously, how did that mumbled garbage deserve moving forward?Team CeeLo
Caroline, while not my favorite style, has a following, so she was moving on no matter what she sang.
Kat has that crazy rocker thing going for her that CeeLo always seems to find success with for a while until it becomes stale. I like her so I was cool with her moving on.
Amber, while being good, didn't seem to have the following of others, so if anyone had to go it would be her.
Jonny? REALLY? Come on America! Granted, he's a very likeable guy, but his singing leaves a lot to be desired. There is no way he deserves to be there, especially at the expense of others.
That brings me to Tamara, who IMO is the biggest travesty of the night. That girl can flat out SING and was easily a favorite to win it all. To get cut this early, especially at the expense of Jonny is pathetic!
Now, while I picked Ray Boudreaux to win it all, Jacquie and Matthew are hard to bet against after the first nights. I'm going with one of those three, but right now I'm not sure which.
