  1. You must have forgot her (performed on the same night) duet with Pharrell Williams. Plus I Call The Shots was a freaking bop
  2. IDF is probably gonna keep this exclusive to performances that were from their least favorites, lol. I'll try to keep it more fair and mention performances that I remember STANDING OUT as actually terrible, for one reason or another. Shane Q: Caribbean Queen (One of the worst performances I can remember, it was literally a huge train wreck) Celia Babini.- A Thousand Years (A lot of the Cross Battles performances were a disaster, but this was the biggest failure of them all, imo. Just a pitchy mess and combine that with Celia's polarizing tone and it was basically asking a lot of people to get bleach for their ears.) Gyth Ridgon - God Bless The USA (Not only was this one of the biggest pander choices of all time, but he sang this HORRIBLY. Gyth knew that he was pandering for votes with this, but thankfully team minivan knew how bad this was and veered towards Maelyn.) Luke Wade - Holding Back The Years (The poor man just crumbled hard with this one.) Reagan Strange - Wherever You Will Go (This might have been the worst instant save performance in the history of the show. Reagan started with an extremely quiet and MONOTONE verse before a screechy and off-pitch chorus. It was almost embarrassing how off key this was. You make it to the Top 6 and THAT'S how you sing for your life?) Zach Seabaugh - Brand New Girlfriend (I'm sure a lot of his stans are probably going to start a mob against me, but I genuinely remember how much I hated this when it was aired and I never lost that hatred. A lot of people probably found this really fun, and good on you if you do, but I just could not stand this one.) Darby Walker - You Don't Own Me (I usually enjoy the indie girls but this was a disaster with a capital D. She definitely deserved to be eliminated the next day despite her solid iTunes showing, tbh.) Sundance Head - Me And Jesus (Exact same reason as Zach, just something I could not stand at all.) Lacy Mandigo - Love Is A Battlefield (Genuinely intolerable, NEEEEEXT.) Will Breman - Locked Out of Heaven (Yeah this was fun but I got a bit sick of him by this point, and it was just not good.) Ayanna Joni - No Tears Left To Cry (I legit don't think a single note was in tune.) Hello Sunday & Kat Hammock - We Belong (Combine the three pitchiest voices in the competition and give them a song that's older than all three of them combined and that's the epitome of a disaster incoming. I'm sure there's more but I think that's enough for now.
  3. Rose>Sisaundra>Brooke>Meghan>Kata I have not seen Amandas.
  4. Dave Fenley is the first that comes to my mind. I didn’t think it was even remotely possible that he wasn’t going to be in the finale. Bria Kelly is another one I can think of. I thought she was a major frontrunner. Granted S6 was a long time ago and I don’t remember if she truly was or not. SandyRedd seemed like she was going to have a strong run, as African American females are typically hated on by the Facebook grandmas. SandyRedd seemed to be an exception and then they just got sick of her and were like “all she does is cry and wail about her dead mother which really affects her singing Jesus we get it!” Therefore she was eliminated early after having a rough journey, having to be stolen/saved in both battles and KOs and needing the CS.
  5. It’s not that it was “bad” or anything, but it was just... so plain. Just like everything else he did. Not to mention that it was performed right after Rose, which just made it feel like a forgettable blur.
  6. Rose Short singing I Want To Know When Love Is. That performance was really special, and blew away everyone else from that night, imo. The fact that the producers had the nerve to put an already dominating Jake Hoot in the pimp spot with another extremely plain and boring song with his 3 consecutive streaming bonuses like it was no big deal was absolutely absurd.
  7. I think the sensible thing would be to skip the battles or KOs entirely. It’ll be 3 weeks of blinds, and 2 weeks of whatever they do after (be it battles or KOs) with 5 weeks of lives since this’ll be a top 24. Then they could go 24->12->10->8->4. But since the producers LOVE having a bad format, realistically the format will probably be a repeat of S18. The lives will start at a top 12 (or 13, wouldn’t surprise me) and go 12/13-8-4 for 3 weeks of auditions and lives, and 2 weeks of battles and KOs. The latter wouldn’t have a steal. Thanks COVID.
  8. In term of what I can think of that actively changed the game... Alisan Porter - Let Him Fly (Wakefield was starting to become more of a frontrunner by this point, but this put her back on top at a perfect time.) Jake Hoot - Cover Me Up (It was essentially game over after this, especially considering the lack of country competition.) Ricky Duran - Let Him Be (This ultimately convinced me that he was beating Katie.) Maelyn Jarmon - Stay (I was tempted to put The Scientist here, but this outcharted freaking GOD BLESS THE USA from Gyth and gave Maelyn a second consecutive streaming bonus. At that point, it was game over. Hallelujah was the final nail in the country slaughter coffin.) Sawyer Fredericks - I'm A Man of Constant Sorrow (No one else was winning after this.) Jordan Smith - Chandelier (See Sawyer.) Chevel Shepherd - Traveling Soldier (The facebook feedback said it all.) Kimberly Nichole - What's Up (This took her from semi-forgettable to frontrunner status, and while she wasn't beating Sawyer it gave her a strong shot at going far) Koryn Hawthorne - Make It Rain (See Kimberly) Chris Blue - Take Me To The King (I had a sense that he was going to win after this performance, and was right.) I'm sure there's plenty more, but I think that's enough for now haha

  10. S4: Amber Carrington (I've seen a lot of her performances despite not watching S4 too much and she was great) S5: Cole Vosbury (I literally do not remember any other 1-chair turn from this season so Cole wins this spot by default) S6: Tess Boyer (One of the most improved contestatnts of the season for sure) S7: Troy Ritchie (Literally every other 1-chair turn this season except Amanda Lee Peers and Bree Fondacaro was either montaged or a teenage boy.) S8: Noelle Bybee JUST for her battle with Sawyer (Everyone else was completely forgettable except Hannah Kirby, who I disliked) S9: Jeffery Austin S10: Shalyah Fearing S11: Michael Sanchez? I couldn't care less about any of them. S12: Chris Blue S13: Lucas Holliday? None of these were remotely memorable for me. S14: Mia Boostroom S15: Kelly Bugs MaKenzie Thomas S16: Kendra Checketts S17: Oh god the 1 chair turns this season were godawful... uh I guess Lauren Hall? S18: Cedrice
  11. Adam: Jordan Smith Blake: Kyla Jade Christina: Alisan Porter Ceelo: Juliet Simms (watched several of her performances and they were strong) Shakira: Sasha Alllen (also watched several of her performances which were REALLY great frequently, if original team members only then Clarissa Serna who was ROBBED) Usher: Michelle Chamuel Pharrell: Hannah Huston Gwen: Rose Short Alicia: Wé McDonald Miley: Brooke Simpson Jennifer: Kennedy Holmes Kelly: Kymberli Joye John: Maelyn Jarmon Nick: Thunderstorm Artis (Allegra Miles if the contestant had to be from original team)
  12. Alisan/Emily Ann and Sasha/Kyla were REALLY hard to decide. I feel like my preference for those can change easily. The rest were rather simple.
  13. Toia Jones from S7 during the KO. An actual travesty that she lost after that.
  14. I'd have to go with Spensha, but none of these really stood out to me.
  15. Hannah Huston is the only viable answer.
  16. Lauren hands down. I really enjoyed Matt's, Addison's, and Toneisha's originals too. Honestly I think more often than not the runner-ups have better originals than the winners.
  17. By a winner? Hmmm... probably Alisan. As much as I want to say Maelyn... I just preferred Alisan's. The lyrics to Maelyn's were cheesy as hell lol. Chevel and Sawyer each get an honorable mention, they were really good.
  18. Tessanne vs Maelyn and Chris vs Katie are the only ones I didn't really NEED to watch again to decide who to vote for, but I rewatched all of them again to be 100% sure since all pairs had at least one performances I haven't seen in a REALLY long time. Even still some were really hard to decide. I'm looking froward to seeing what happens.
  19. This feels like Cross Battles but 99% of the performances aren't hot garbage, lmao.
  20. This one probably won’t last too long. Tonya-Boyd Cannon Stephanie Skipper Rose Short Arei Moon
  21. I wanted these contestants to win 1. Kyla Jade 2. Brooke Simpson 3. Wé McDonald Contestants I would have been more than happy with winning, but I preferred someone else 4. Katie Kadan 5. Hannah Huston 6. Christina Grimmie 7. Thunderstorm Artis Fine, but you wouldn't have made the finale if I was in charge 8. Will Champlin 9. Aliyah Moulden 10. Chris Jamison The bottom of the barrel that shouldn't have made it even close to the finale, sorry 11. Dexter Roberts 12. Joshua Davis 13. Kirk Jay 14. Barrett Baber Didn't watch S1-S4 enough to place their respective 3rd place finalists.
  22. Contestants I actively wanted to win 1. Jacquie Lee 2. Michelle Chamuel (I didn't watch S1-S4, but I've seen enough performances from her to the point where she's the only contestant from the era I missed that I would feel confident in placing in a list like this) 3. Lauren Duski 4. Matt McAndrew Strong contestants, would have been satisfied with them winning, but not my #1 choice 5. Addison Agen 6. Toneisha Harris 7. Ricky Duran 8. Meghan Linsey Fine contestants, but I would have not placed them in the finale if given the choice 9. Emily Ann Roberts 10. Britton Buchanan The country singers (other than Lauren) that only made it as far as they did because Country + Blake (with a special guest appearance by Billy Gilman) 11. Adam Wakefield 12. Billy Gilman 13. Chris Kroeze 14. Jake Worthington 15. Gyth Rigdon
