  1. But is it a fair question? To be concerned about someones politics or anything else because of where they are from? That feels like purposeful discrimination from where I sit. Would it still be a fair question if the question was about making broad assumptions about someone from say ....Kenya? If anything ever needed to be canceled ...it would be making assumptions about people based on anything other than how they live their lives. All the worse to make an assumption about Queen Maelyn like that. That is just fu*ked up.
  2. This was the hardest bracket for me.
  3. Very serious. There was no metric, I am aware of, that favored Chris over Lauren during the voting period. None. No one accounted for the TPTB factor though. Chris got a lot of post show publicity for working with Alicia. She produced 2 singles for him on a Republic Records label that went nowhere. He ended up releasing a 3 song EP or something like that on an Indie label....that... like almost every other Voice winner....also went nowhere. Lauren's self released EP didn't do much either but it did at least chart in 8 countries.
  4. Again, that's only your guess because you can't possibly know what the actual vote count was.... casual or otherwise. Also, Chris was never ahead on YT views until he was announced the winner and his YT was published everywhere announcing the win. Lauren was well ahead on Facebook likes and Twitter mentions. She was more popular then and she's more popular now.
  5. See....you have a subjective opinion that Kennedy had the best finals performance (I agree) and was robbed. Lauren had objectively the best two finals performances (#1 AND # 2 on iTunes) but was not robbed. Lauren also had a 350k to 500k lead in accumulated iTune bonus' before the first vote was cast in the finals. Was that 1% to 5% of the total filan vote? I don't know the percentage but it's a big head start for a popular Team Blake member. Blake went onstage in Nashville a few days after the finals and said the Vote was "Bull Sh*T". Yep he said that about the show he works for. With his contract...he couldn't say that....unless it was true.
  6. Lauren was 100% robbed. Yes, Chris was on another level, it was just several levels below Lauren. She sold more on the show and currently average streams are twice his even after all the work he did with Alicia post show. I will go to my grave believing he was given a win to send Alicia away with a gift....just like they saved this "best vocalist" till all the other teams were filled up in the blinds. The fix was on right from the start. Back on topic... Deja Vu is the winner here.
  7. Hummm...that looks strangely familiar....oh now I remember. The current round is far less clear....I'm going to need a play them more than once to decide on 3 of them.
  8. If it will help, you can just copy off my post next round. I mean, that's what friends are for...right.
  9. I didn't vote for "Danny's Song" but NGL Fuzzy Swon sang that perfectly. Maelyn slayed though. #SupermanWearsMaelynPajamas FWIW: I blame Amber for blowing the lyrics to "I Remember You" and then biting off more than she could chew with "Firework" the following week for keeping her out of the finals. She had hiccups just when the Swon's hit their peak.
  10. I only strayed from mercfan3's seeding once. Her typically impeccable taste failed miserably on the 5th one though....not sure how she got that one so wrong. #1 Seed: Tessanne Chin - I Have Nothing #2 Seed: Maelyn Jarmon - The Scientist #3 Seed: Amanda Brown - Dream On #4 Seed: Alisan Porter - Let Him Fly #12 Seed: Maelyn Jarmon - Mad World #6 Seed: Amber Carrington - Stay #7 Seed: Matt McAndrew - Blower’s Daughter #8 Seed: Sasha Allen- Ain’t No Way
  11. mercfan3 did you post when voting will close? Maybe I missed it.
  12. Yep...same...I was a casual watcher till S4.
  13. Yes a certain pair of 16 year olds. That's a lose either way. I would have picked different "moments" for our S4 girls. Who I Am and I Knew You Were Trouble. Who I Am was not so much vocal slayage but it was a very emotional moment...walking out to the audience to finish a song about discovering yourself while standing next to her parents.....being pretty much a true story for her at the time was a precious moment. Also, Actually I think Alisan had a very solid run. It ain't just you and me girl....by every metric it was the the highest rated season and remains the ONLY spring season to finish with a bigger audience than the Premier. FTR: Spring seasons always lose audience as the show progresses because peeps are getting out more with warm weather and Fall seasons grow or don't lose much because of the opposite.
  14. Wait wut? I thought we had a one token male per bracket limit? That is a strong bracket....one of them in particular is already giving me heartburn.
  15. Pretty much same for me. "Angel" was not my fav...but this round we have "I Put A Spell On You"...defiantly one of my all time favs. I still can't get my head around how a 16 YO could connect that well with that song.
  16. Lol. TBH 3,4 & 5 are too close to call. Also, there is a modicum of plus up for Alisan because of IDFs silent canceling when she took a slight right turn to country.
  17. Gotta say IDF got all of these right or the competition was close enough to call it that. Some were snowflakes and some not, but the winning performances were excellent.
  18. That's a steely wit you're packing. I'm sure someone will be offended but that's just funny....even in the face of a triple tragedy.

  20. Of course I did.
  21. I wanna play! Also, everyone take note of my signature.
  22. Yep....he made for a useful anchor....singer...not so much. He is especially tragic because I'd bet large I could find much better playing on a Nashville street for tips. I certainly have in the past.
  23. The format was an epic fail.....but ya know there were also some tragic performances by IDF faves that lead to that awful Final. Have to say though, , IMHO, Gyth was the worst finalist (yes, worst than Jake)....much less runner-up in the shows history. Thank God for Queen Maelyn.
  24. Kennedy Holmes Christina Grimmie Koryn Hawthorne Swon Brothers Rose Short Andrew Sevener Laith al Saadi Wasn't a fan of any of the rest. Side note: I think Andrew would get a better reaction here to making the finals if we did not have to also suffer the unwarranted advancements of Gyth and Dexter. Of the three hats he was the only one who brought some kind of art to his music. ie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyBl4Z0RRs8
  25. Umm...after the first few things get muddy.
