  1. Given how close it was between himself and Lauren at the end, maybe Chris? And perish the thought, but perhaps Maelyn? (Though even if that were the case, her Cross-Battle might've more than made up for it.)
  2. Multiple people have won or made the finale in spite of it . . . but I wouldn't say many. Only three have won in spite of it (Cassadee, Chloe, and Chevel). Others who probably could've won certainly might've gotten hampered by being montaged.
  3. Right! For example, Nadjah was an unexpected Blake pick, too, but it didn't stop her Battle from getting montaged, anyway. Alexandra was a surprise Jennifer pick and still got her Blind and Battle montaged. Calvin was an unexpected Gwen pick and got his Battle and Knockout montaged, as well, in spite of that.
  4. I agree. Just making the Lives doesn't equal being shown in full each pre-taped round. I mean, poor Kristen Merlin got her Blind and both of her Battles montaged before she was finally showed in full in the Playoffs (pre-taped that season) before making the Lives. And just four seasons ago, Cali Wilson and Ricky Braddy got their Battles montaged but still made the Lives after winning their Knockouts. Two seasons before them, three artists out of the top four had their Battles montaged and still made the Lives. Point is, as long as your Battle has no steal at the end of it, you are absolutely vulnerable to being montaged in that round, whether you make the Lives or not. So any of the Battles with no steals or saves can be montaged.
  5. Ali and Janice were against that man's artists, and he still had great Twitter power at the time. Plus, their opponents were country artists. Ashland was having resentment over Moriah's elimination harbored toward her (when it should've been directed at Miley). And Darby was against another Team Miley member. There are differences.
  6. Wasn't she engaged? She could be focusing on the wedding right now. Or something else in her life is happening.
  7. She said that he said "so many amazing things." That was all. Pharrell didn't say a lot because he thought he had it in the bag. He looked pretty shocked when he didn't get her.
  8. I think that if they do it again, they should do it again when all four coaches have won a season. Like, maybe if Gwen came back with John, Kelly, and Blake, it could happen.
  9. Might've been why Miley got rejected as many times as she was, too.
  10. I can see Ariana's fans hating the hell out of her, though. Kelly had better have sold herself really well, because if Ariana made a great pitch and still didn't get picked, Gymani's the one who looks bad (or maybe Kelly if hers was weak). If Ariana's pitch was weak, then Ariana herself looks bad.
  11. Definitely saw KCK3 briefly in the First Look promo. Who's the Asian man who's the registered nurse?
  12. There were several younger artists for whom she could've turned, as well, to give Mikaela a fair match, and she didn't do it.
  13. Vocally perfect. Not a single flaw to it. And it moved me in a way that Micah's did not.
  14. 1. Tayler - I don't give a crap of how "interesting" Micah's performance was. He was barely okay in it. Plain and simple. Tayler was excellent. Kelly knew she did better and still saved Micah? Once again, she really exposed her bias there. 2. Marisa - Though her start was rough, the rest was excellent. Tanner was just boring. Kelly again exposed her bias and, as a bonus, kept Tanner just because he was country. 3. Sa'Rayah - Michael was the more interesting artist, but Sa'Rayah just plain gave the better performance.
  15. 1. The Bundys - Yes, the matchup was hugely unfair, but blame Kelly and her pickiness in the Blinds for them ending up as her "no one was left" pairing. That said, the Bundys were pretty much perfect, while Mikaela let the unintentional intimidation factor get to her. We had her as pitch-perfect, but that was autotune. She apparently went off the rails a number of times. Unfair as it seems, it actually was a fair win for the Bundys. 2. Lindsay Joan - I watched the Battle live, and I can tell you that Lindsay was damn near flawless (at least once she shook off the early nerves). Zae was nervous throughout and I could hear it in his performance. Nick kept him only because he didn't want to deal with the brunt he took from dropping his only four-chair-turn the last time he was on. 3. Rizzi Myers - Truthfully, I thought it was about even with them both, but Rizzi had more experience and could've made a deeper run than Presley. Kelly messed up here, and in the process, she started exposing her bias against women in their twenties or older.
  16. I wonder what's with Blake being so picky this season? He's usually the least picky of the coaches. It's Kelly and John who are usually the pickiest.
  17. I'm sure they wanted her to win, but Miley did that to herself. And yes, she knew it, too. True, she had no way of knowing how popular Chloe and Addison would be with the audience -- no coach did -- but she nonetheless screwed the pooch all on her own, with no help whatsoever from TPTB.
  18. She's against Gymani, who seems like she'll be pretty popular, as well. I'm sure she'll be shown.
  19. Honestly, I think that this should be one of many examples of why future female country acts (who are teenage girls) should avoid both Blake and Kelly. Blake just doesn't value them anymore, and Kelly will just pay lip service to fight for them at first, but will then drop them at the first opportunity. If either of the other two coaches (whomever they may turn out to be) are available), then take a risk and try and stand out on one of their teams instead.
  20. Ah, of course. But him having multiple finalists wasn't a consistent thing yet. Not till season nine, as I just said.
  21. Ohhhhhhhh, right. That guy. My mind's usually an iron trap when it comes to this show, but it shows how I feel about that season in general when I can't remember him.
