  2. Poor Kelly, she can't seem to catch a break! :haha:

     

    I had a feeling she'd be stuck with a bad singer after the first two episodes. With that said, I can't believe they actually had a 5 bad singers, 1 good singer episode. :dead: I get that the contestant thought Magician was a good singer after getting so many bad singers right and decided to risk it, but man did that not pay off. He'll have to find another way to fund his wife's dream honeymoon.

     

    Is Ken going to wear the same green suit all season? :/ :haha:

  3. Yikes, I got really busy and overlooked this. I'll start with two honorable mentions from the list:

     

    Brenda Lee - Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree

    Billboard 2021 Ranking: 92

     

    I decided not to include this (and my other honorable mention) in the ranking because it's a Christmas tune that's been around longer than the few years other songs on this list have been (1958 to be exact). While I wouldn't say this is one of my absolute favorite Christmas songs, this is a classic that is cheery and easy and fun to sing along to. 

     

    Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas Is You

    Billboard 2021 Ranking: 78

     

    Ah yes, this classic Mariah Carey Christmas tune that annually plays without fail. It wouldn't surprise me if this is considered to be Mariah's signature song, which would be something considering her catalogue. It's easy to get into the festive spirit when the opening bells and Mariah's vocals come in. The rest of the song is a lot of fun to sing along with as well. I think it belongs in the echelon with the other well-known Christmas tunes.

     

    Brenda Lee - Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree:

    Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas Is You:

     

    I'll start working on the first set. I'm not sure when it'll be posted, however.

  4. 4. Queen Of Hearts/Jewel

    MS-S6_QUEEN_OF_HEARTS_BACKDROP_V2_OUT.jpg 3042-singer-jewel-kilcher-full.jpg&f=1&nofb=1

    Queen Of Hearts - Born This Way

    Queen Of Hearts - La Vie en rose

    Queen Of Hearts - River

    Queen Of Hearts - She's Got You

    Queen Of Hearts - Bird Set Free

    Queen Of Hearts - Dream On (Duet With Nicole Scherzinger)

    Queen Of Hearts - What's Going On

    Queen Of Hearts - Firework

    Queen Of Hearts Unmasking

     

    Kicking off the final four in this ranking is the S6 winner. I wasn’t a fan of her costume at first - especially with the one eye, blue lips, and crown being prominently on the left side - but it grew on me as the season progressed. While she wasn’t what you would call an energetic performer, at least compared to some of the others, she was very consistent and had some very strong performances en route to her victory. My favorites of hers are La Vie en rose and River. In addition, her Dream On duet with Nicole was very good. After winning the crown, she was revealed to be none other than Jewel. Admittedly, I hoped Banana Split made the finals, but I liked QoH as well despite being my least favorite of the final four and have no issues with her victory. :yes:

     

    3. Skunk/Faith Evans

    MS-S6_SKUNK_BACKDROP_V3.jpg faith-evans-at-clive-davis-2019-pre-grammy-gala-arrivals-the-beverly-hilton-los-angeles-6.jpg&f=1&nofb=1

    Skunk - Diamonds

    Skunk - It's A Man's Man's Man's World

    Skunk - Midnight Train To Georgia

    Skunk - Square Biz

    Skunk - At Last

    Skunk - I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You)

    Skunk - Ain't No Mountain High Enough (Duet With Michael Bolton)

    Skunk Unmasking

     

    At #3 is Skunk. Skunk has one of the most majestic costumes, IMO. I especially loved the flowing dress and liked that they kept the black and white color scheme; there was nothing foul about this costume (OK, I’ll see myself out). As a performer, Skunk was a serious vocal powerhouse. She had some of the most powerful and soulful performances, with my favorites being It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World, Square Biz, and the Ain’t No Mountain High Enough duet with Michael Bolton despite Bolton moving like he had two Lincoln Logs for legs. She was eliminated in the Group A Finals and was revealed to be Faith Evans. I kind of figured it was her from the beginning and became more sure as more clues came out. She’s someone else who could’ve been a finalist, but the competition was tough at that point.

     

    2. Banana Split/David Foster & Katharine McPhee-Foster

    MS-S6_BANANA_SPLIT_BACKDROP_V3.jpg rs_600x600-190519194116-600-katharine-mcphee-david-foster-icon-awards-me-51919.jpg?fit=around%257C1080:1080%26output-quality=90%26crop=1080:1080;center,top&f=1&nofb=1

    Banana Split - A Million Dreams

    Banana Split - Cry Me A River

    Banana Split - Let 'Er Rip

    Banana Split - Poker Face

    Banana Split - Singin' In The Rain

    Banana Split - Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing (Duet With Robin Thicke)

    Banana Split Unmasking

     

    One the sweetest acts to appear on TMS comes in at the penultimate spot. Their costumes were cute and fun. I especially liked the heart-shaped eyes on Banana. Lastly, their promo picture is cute with Split doing well, the splits. I enjoyed all of their performances in some form or another, for they showed great variety by mixing up ballads and uptempo songs. I especially loved A Million Dreams, Cry Me A River, and Poker Face. Their duet with Robin was pretty solid, with Robin really showing off some strong vocals. Sadly, they were eliminated in the Group B Finals and were unmasked as David Foster and Katharine McPhee-Foster. I knew it was them from the first note; otherwise, I would’ve turned in my fan card fat chance that would happen. :haha: Of course I was rooting for them to make the overall finals, but it wasn’t meant to be. :broken: Nonetheless, they had a great run. Based on the act themselves, they would have a strong chance of being my #1 (mainly because of one half of the act; guess who could that be :giggle:).

     

    1. Bull/Todrick Hall

    MS-S6_BULL_BACKDROP_V1.jpg Todrick-Hall.jpg&f=1&nofb=1

    Bull - Drops Of Jupiter

    Bull - What Hurts The Most

    Bull - Circus

    Bull - Make You Feel My Love

    Bull - Rain On Me

    Bull - Straight Up

    Bull - Breakeven (Duet With Jesse McCartney)

    Bull - You Gotta Be

    Bull - Invisible

    Bull Unmasking

     

    At #1 is the act who took the competition by the horns but was slayed in the end. Bull’s costume was great, especially with the nose rings, cape, and gold embellishments all over it. Bull was certainly a captivating performer who left it all on the stage. He seamlessly transitioned from energetic uptempo numbers to emotional ballads. My favorites from him are What Hurts The Most, Circus, To Make You Feel My Love, and You Gotta Be. His duet with Jesse McCartney was also good. He finished as the runner up and was unmasked as Todrick Hall. I kind of figured it was him from the beginning. Also, Nicole knowing who he was from the start but keeping it under wraps was kind of amusing. This is a classic case of me ranking an act based on what they do on the show because I am not a Todrick Hall fan whatsoever outside of it. Nonetheless, he was a great performer and managed to edge out Banana Split for the S6 #1 spot.

    That's it for S6!

  5. There are six spots remaining in the top 20 with only our wildcards left to choose from. For this final round, we will each vote against one performance. The performance we would not like to see join the top 20. Whichever performance has the most votes is out.

     

    Stephany Negrete "Mamma Knows Best" - 4 (Nico, JORDAN_FAN, Sola Diana )

    La'Porsha Renae "Proud Mary" - 

    Avalon Young "Yo (Excuse Me Miss)" - 

    MacKenzie Bourg "Roses" - 1 (Crisis)

    La'Porsha Renae "Halo" - 5 (Alex, Elliott, Akshar, Zoey, Steven)

    La'Porsha Renae "Ready For Love" - 

    Trent Harmon "Simple Man" - 

     

    You cannot change your vote once you cast your vote. The round will end when either everyone has voted, 48 hours is up, or it's mathematically impossible to catch the performance in the lead. Whatever comes first.

    - I could have sworn it was Robin and that's why I was so confused. 😮  Let me know if you did/do end up watching it back. 

     

    Haha yep, that was the one. :giggle: 

     

    Ooh, I'll go check them out in a bit and see if I have any more thoughts!

     

    I'm glad to hear it. I did as well, thank you. :hug: 

     

    Okay, I'm going to edit these comments in here so things will be in order. :teeheewave: 

     

    16. Beach Ball/Honey Boo Boo and Mama June: I pretty much agree with everything. :lmao:  I think I remember Nick saying something about "have we saved the best wildcard for last?" and then... that performance happened. :blushingwave: 

    15. Dalmatian/Tyga: I love dogs and the combination of a Dalmatian and football player. :wub:  As I mentioned, I really liked his performance and would have enjoyed seeing more of him. 

    14. Mother Nature/Vivica A. Fox: This costume kind of creeped me out. I don't think I was much a fan of the performance either. "I spent most of the time watching the whack-a-mole action rather than Mother Nature herself." :lmao: 

    13. Hamster/Rob Schneider: The costume is so cute. :giggle: I liked him, although as usual, I had no idea who he was. lol

     

    12. Cupcake/Ruth Pointer: Whoa, I kind of forgot all about her. :dead:  I love cupcakes though. :wub:  Ooh okay, I remember the masculine sounding voice. I'm not familiar with the Pointer Sisters at all though, so I never would have got this. 

    11. Caterpillar/Bobby Berk: I'm also not familiar with Bobby Berk, but I thought the caterpillar costume was cute. "His costume was something with the long body and braces." :lmao: OMGGG Jenny was such a mess with that guess and using the buzzer. I could not even believe it.

    10. Jester/Johnny Rotten: Another person I don't know. :haha: Jester was pretty scary, but also interesting. I kind of would have liked to see more of him.

    09. Baby/Larry The Cable Guy: omg BABY! :wub::dead:  Hahaha I loved him for no reason. Haha maybe something to do with what you said on his Flintstones performance, although I was stanning from his first appearance. :giggle: I just remember my mom texting me to say "bye baby" or something after it. :dead:  It's so crazy when someone is unmasked as someone the panel has previously guessed a ton. 😮 

     

    08. Mallard/Willie Robertson: I loved this costume. :wub: I know of Willie, but not well enough to ever guess this was him (although I was spoiled on it). I did enjoy him though. 

    07. Pufferfish/Toni Braxton: Oh yeah, her performing with two masks is really impressive. 😮 I'm not crazy about this costume and don't think I cared much for her performances either... but I mostly remember Nick going on about how mad everyone was going to be once she was unmasked, lol.

    06. Octopus/Dwight Howard:  Wait, why do I not remember him at all? :dead:  Maybe because of only one performance but I'm so confused. I kind of like the costume though. Ahh and yeah, you're really right about Ken being so good with the athletes. 

    05. Pepper/Natasha Bedingfield: I was really impressed with Pepper right from the start. I was spoiled on her identity, but wish I could have figured it out... even though I doubt I would have. 😐 :lmao: But I really like her voice and thought she did great on the show. 

     

    I did watch it back, and Robin referred to Ken guessing David based on the hand gesture. I'd like to say we both got this right. :haha:

     

    It looks like it's been retired again, maybe until the next holiday season... 🤔

     

    It looks like you did just that. :yes:

     

    ❤️

     

    16. That was something when Nick saying they may have saved the best wildcard for last. Maybe the best bad wildcard performance. :haha:

    15. Fair enough about him.

    14. I can see how creepy the costume could be. Glad to see some amusement about my whack-a-mole comment.

    13. I agree about the costume being cute. Maybe not much of an Adam Sandler fan because he (Hamster) appeared in a number of his movies.

     

    12. I don't think many outside of their genre would've been familiar with The Pointer Sisters. I listened to their music quite a bit plus Oakland represent! :haha: I wished she were better or see her and her sister as a duo as initially planned.

    11. Yeah, Jenny acting the way she did with the buzzer was something. :haha: I was afraid they were going to use it on Banana Split and guessed them correctly. :lmao:

    10. Fair enough about him.

    09. Now I'm hoping for someone to sing the Gilligan's Island and/or Diff'rent Strokes themes on the show. :dead: LOL at your mother's text. :dead: It is crazy how that happens.

     

    08. Fair enough

    07. It certainly was. Nick was all y'all don't know who this is at the time of her unmasking. :lmao:

    06. Sadly, he was the first act eliminated, so unless your an iconic muppet you most likely will be forgotten. :haha:

    05. Pretty much agree here. Of course, I forgot to mention Ken using the Take It Off buzzer on her and guessing she was Sara Barielles. :haha:

     

    I will try to have the last four up by tomorrow.

    What do you guys think of everyone getting to choose their own partners? Keep it that way, go back to the randomizer, or alternate between the two?

     

    I'm OK with it. The only thing is that it gives me flashbacks to my junior high and high school days when I was usually the last person picked or in some cases not picked at all. :haha:

  8. Wow, what an episode.

     

    That was something having five good singers and one bad singer. I completely expected Wrestling Announcer to be a bad singer after the others were eliminated. I don't know if I would've risked going for the $100k because of this, but the gamble definitely paid off for the contestant. They probably won't have an episode in which there are five bad singers and one good one, but it would be something.
