IDF: we want unique, quirky, interesting contestants
also IDF: Gwen's team is terrible, Gwen is the worst coach, it's all quirky unique singers
The coaches seemed to like Desz and Tamara but it didn't seem like they were blown away by either one, and I wasn't either (they both clearly won their battles though).. This is in part a stylistic thing, because I'm not a fan of over the top runs. The Payge - Lauren battle was *really* good, but way more understated Payge deserved the win, Lauren was the most deserved steal). Kelly thought a few of the contestants were pitchy, and that Taryn didn't choose to show off the better parts of her voice, until the end...also that Mia needed to have more confidence on stage (because she is really good vocally).
I think my biggest issues weren't with the winners, but with the pairings i.e. I don't think Gwen should have paired Liam and Ryan, Blake Taryn and WTW etc
