    Fair enough. If we all agreed on everything IDF would be pretty boring. I think it was a winning performance. 


    It may be but it will be because of the non musical factors.  Not the least of which is his momma's boy (ie: Gwen) vibe .  Total minivan bait.   I'm not saying he sucks, I'm just saying he's only special for his boyish range.

    Carter’s performance was the best of the night, and it’s not close. 


    That is very sad if true because I've heard it sung better at my church twice...once by a male and once by a female.  It's a great worship song but as far as performances of that song goes it was just ok.

  3. She CRUSHED it tonight.  She may be the finalist few saw coming.  I mentioned last week what might happen if Kelly fed her the right song.  Scratch that....she fed herself just fine.  


    She won her battle by a little bit.

    It’s not a “Faith Curse.” Those two just didn’t have the vocal talent to pull it off, and should have chosen a different song. 


    Yep....and neither is Carrie.  Danielle crushed two Carrie tunes in her S4 run.   The ego that tells you "I can sing Carrie or Faith" will not help.  You gotta have the pipes.

    I loved Kelsie's audition AND I do love Alanis very much. However, Alanis is such a deathtrap in singing competitions. I never seem anyone recover after singing one of her songs. 

    Which brings me to a random thought: Faith Hill is usually a killer too. Does anyone have any memories of a competitor in singing competitions who presented positive results after a Faith Hill song?

    Well if closing the show singing "Cry" in the finals, getting an iTunes bonus for it and taking home the trophy the next day counts as positive results....then yes.  Cassadee Pope in S3. 🙂

    Don’t sweat it. Ryan is probably winning the KO.

    Since I’m usually wrong about these, I feel like this prediction actually gives Taryn a better chance. 

    Ryan is actually really popular on IDF, because of how “hot” he is. I’m not sure why anyone is surprised at how well he’s doing in the poll. 


    I think Taryn winning the 4-way is a high probability outcome.....for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is girl can sing. 


    Can we talk though about how TPTB maneuvered this?  I mean all 4 are pretty dang good...and none even generated a steal attempt?  Really?  3 of them are working pros who have proven they can sing live.  WTF? 


    Is this a new bus tool where they send challengers of their favs to purgatory to diminish their profile and cull to one?   Maybe.

    I'm personally more surprised that Taryn isn't winning by a landslide. She is the obvious IDF darling here.

    Me too.  I opened this thread expecting its purpose was to gloat at how popular Taryn is.  I love Julia's sound but I fully expected her to be dead last...because.....you know...if everybody had taste....it wouldn't be taste....it would be common.  LOL.    20% for Julia is a good reflection.  🙂

    Julia was done dirty with that song choice, but I feel like she did what she could with it.  They can't take away her unique, beautiful tone and style.  She won the battle in my eyes.

    Yeah.....ya know.... a band intensive song is generally not the ideal choice for a singer as nuanced as Julia.  Of course, TPTB knew that but they have no qualms about pushing their narrative to the detriment of a contestant.  I realize quirky indie girls like Julia rarely get any favors (actually none that I can casually remember) but Julia is way better than most in that genre.  So I didn't expect a favor but bandzilla treatment in favor of the TPTB TCO in one round followed by competing with the girl that is likely the audience TCO in the 4 way is just wrong.  The only mystery here is how Taryn ended up in the 4 way.  WTF?
