- It looks like they didn’t try to pass off lip-syncing this week. Unless just the rappers got to do their own thing.
- I could only endure about 2 seconds of Willow Smith and am really pissed they got “I Whip My Hair Back and Forth” stuck in my head again!
- Should I know who Jessie J is? Was she around before Katy Perry and Gaga? Shouldn’t she be required to wear pants and not a flesh colored jumpsuit? This is American TV.
- They obviously knew how pissed off everyone was about the long ass pauses last week. Steve sped up the reveal of the safe acts quite a bit.
- Once again Paula is devastated the bottom two are her two acts. She is getting better at crying though. It’s the little things people.
- Lakoda Rayne are up first. They are obviously not lip-syncing because brown haired girl is too emotional to hold her notes. Oh, and what in the hell was she wearing? Black and white striped parachute pants are not your friend. They’re not anyone’s friend. Once they get into the song it’s much better. There still seems to be a disconnect between the members and the girl who is going from high notes to low notes is not doing them any favors. Overall it was OK.
- Stereo Hogzz come out as put together as always. They sounded really good, but you could tell they felt they were doing their last song.
Now comes the best part of the night. Steve asks everyone to give their votes. Of course, they all have to go into why they are voting the way they are and Steve hurries them along. Both L.A. and Nicole eventually vote for Stereo Hogzz to go home. When it’s Paula’s turn to vote she flat out refuses. She crying and extremely emotional. She’s silently pleading to Simon with her eyes as Steve berated her for a vote. Simon says she’s not going to vote and that’s fine. Steve jumps in and says that if she doesn’t vote then majority rules and Stereo Hogzz are going home without a vote from Simon. This prompts Paula to tearfully vote to keep the Stereo Hogzz so “they can at least have a chance.” Simon quickly votes to get rid of The Hogzz and Paula’s vote wouldn’t have mattered anyway. I think that was a pretty horrible thing to do to her. Why not let Simon vote first? That way, if he votes for Lakoda Rayne she could then vote to go to deadlock. Or, if he votes the other way, she doesn’t have to vote at all. Now she has to explain to the act that remains why she voted to get rid of them.
The drama is over and another act goes home to local fame and national obscurity. I’m thinking Paula should have kept the Brewer Boys. At least then she would have had the teenage girl vote and maybe kept a group around a bit longer. Oh, well. Lakoda Rayne, we’ll see you in the bottom two next week.
So, did you enjoy watching Paula cry as much as Steve did? Do you think the right act went home? Would you have been nice to Paula and voted with her so America could decide who went home? Yeah, I’m looking at you Simon. Let me know in the COMMENTS!
