  1. Rose seems happy and at peace with herself. Such a queen! Oh, no ... Katie!!!!!! WTF!!!!!! :x :x :x OMG, Gooooo Ricky!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :ph34r:
  2. It's not Blake Shelton's support per se. It's Blake's FANS' support (by no means monolithic, but still) that makes the difference, i.e. who or what they choose to support, irrespective of what he tells them. It's firstly the types of fans he's attracted to show. And then secondly, it's the types of pre-existing preferences those very fans bring to the voting. Simply put, if you've got a ton of white, country-leaning voters watching the show sort of religiously, well I think you can work out the rest...
  3. UPDATED S17 Top 4 YouTube Score Ranking (Posted 11:30 am, pacific, Tuesday 12/17/19) Scoring: The score is derived by turning the likes to dislikes ratio for each performance into a percentage. The premise is that when viewers/listeners click like or dislike, it's akin to casting a vote. I reckon it'll be interesting to see how this correlates to the actual official vote. These scores were taken at approximately 1:30 am (Pacific), 12/17/19. I'll update them again and reassess the ranking at approximately 11:30 am (Pacific), 12/17/19. Note that scores are most in flux during the first

  5. Why? Two words: BLAKE SHELTON. Imagine if Adam had won the personality battle with Blake, i.e. America's favorite coach. I think the eventual demographic lean would have turned out a bit different. Look at the current iteration of Idol (the BLAKE affect, I believe, extends to that show too, but of course to a lesser degree, e.g. notice how it's now almost mandatory to have a country coach/judge on the panel, whereas the original AI never bothered to have one), and consider how the judges' personalities and force of will/celebrity power shape that show differently from The Voice. Imagine i
  6. THIS. Director's production vision 1st, competition outcome 2nd.

  9. Some early-ish YouTube numbers... I'll do a proper update in about 1.5 hours (=1 hr after the west coast broadcast ends): Avg. Score Ranking (all 3 performances) 1. Rose 95.54% 2. Katie 95.31% 3. Ricky 94.15% 4. Jake 94.08% This is on par with the season as a whole, so no surprises. The good news for Katie is that Rose failed to jump ahead significantly, such that it would make an actual difference. If Rose were leading by solid 2-3%, that would give pause for though. But with such a slim lead, Katie could easily be the leader by the end of the night. And even if Rose sti
  10. You're not alone! I agree 100%!!!! Also, how could this not be the most FUN performance of the night?
  11. Finale Ranking: Solo Covers 1. Rose "Border Song" 2. Katie"Asteroid Song" 3. Jake "Amazed" 4. Ricky Solo Originals 1. Rose "Steamroller" 2. Ricky 3. Katie/Jake Christmas Coach Duets 1. Rose "My Gift is You" 2. Jake "Wintersong" 3. Katie/Ricky Prediction: 1. Katie 2. Jake 3. Rose 4. Ricky The only problem that I foresee is Rose siphoning a small portion of votes from Katie, and Jake then siphoning a similar number of votes from Ricky (=Blake's voting contingent), and that combined with the cumulative streaming bonus ... whether Katie's lead i
  12. HOLY MOSES!!!!! Rose SANG the crap out of that song!!!!!! Took us to church, girl! Her best (and cleanest) vocal since "Big White Room". Katie will probably win, but Rose was the best of the night for me. Anybody but the Hoot, and no offence Jake (and Ricky, ever the pro!), but the ladies all season have been on another plane of existence to the rest. AMEN.
  13. Hmm, I quite like this song for Ricky. Very folksy. It's nice! 2nd best original of the night, for me. Kelly was right, re: Springsteen.
  14. Not a fan Katie's one swoop on "you" and again on "eye" near the end ... bold choices, but they didn't work for me. The rest of the vocal sounded great to me, though the ending was a touch ragged, just a touch.
  15. SAME. 2nd hour has been better than the first, and hopefully the night will end with the performance we deserve. Katie starting off beautifully.
  16. The Gwen & Rose Show!!!!!!! LOVED IT! Harmonies were on point. Great song penned by Gwen. Like the original, but LOVED it so much more as a duet by these two. Rose was so extra on this, loved all the playful bits. Coach/contestant chemistry was off the chain! Win or lose, Rose is enjoying herself big time, and it's infectious. "Wintersong" was also very good, even if Jake was a tad flat on a couple of notes. But nothing that takes too much away from a very good performance of an exquisite song. These were the best two duets of the night.
  17. Katie loves her snazzy glasses so much, it's a wonder she isn't the one singing the Elton song! :D Not the biggest fan of her original. Not her fault, but the song is structured to sound very repetitive.
