I love Blake and do think he's probably the best coach and is clearly the best entertainment on this show, but stuff like last night kinda irks me about him.
It's painfully obvious, by his own words, that he wants Country singers to advance regardless of who is the best singer up there. Now, the first time he picked using his Country bias I was fine with it because it was very close between Holly and Sasha. I even think Holly did better, but to pick the Swon Brothers over Christian Porter simply because they are Country pissed me off. Seriously, they sounded like they were nothing more than Christian's backup singers that whole battle. He totally owned that stage and that song and the brothers did nothing but sing backup.
Nevermind the fact that I really wanted to see Blake put his two duos up against each other, but now I can see why. They are both Country and it's obvious he didn't want to risk losing one by pairing them. Guaranteed the sister duo will move on, even if they are clearly inferior to who Blake puts them up against.
Oh, and Shakira was drop dead gorgeous last night. Post-pregnancy and straight hair really suits her.
