  2. I was really hoping that one made it. Oh well, it can't be helped. At least New York State Of Mind is safe for now.
  3. Who cut Edge Of Glory?! I'm not mad, I just want to talk. Cut Colton Dixon "Lately"
  4. The problem with Adam Brock being cut is there are no black women left.
  5. Elliott Yamin (Rankings 5-1) 5. Free Elliott Yamin - Free 4. A Song For You Elliott Yamin - A Song For You 3. One Word Elliott Yamin - One Word 2. Movin' On Elliott Yamin - Movin' On 1. Wait For You Elliott Yamin - Wait For You
  6. @Solaris and I are advancing Skylar Laine - Stay With Me and cutting: Joshua Ledet - Without You Jessica Sanchez - My All
  7. Finally got around to watching the first two episodes. I had a feeling Octopus was Dwight Howard and Mother Nature was Vivica A. Fox. Both were fun, especially the former, but they were the weakest of the group. LOL at Ken getting his First Impression guess right first. Ken has always been good with the athletes, so it was no surprise he got Octopus correct. Disappointed Pufferfish is already out. I thought either Baby or Hamster was weaker, oh well. Back to Pufferfish, I knew she was Toni Braxton from the beginning. As much as she tried, she could not disguise her voice from me. I found Nick's disbelief at the panel not guessing her kind of amusing. Her performing with two masks on was certainly impressive, especially considering other acts talked about how hot those costumes are. As for the remaining acts, I'll put my guesses in spoiler tags. These are without me reading any spoilers.
  8. Our cuts: DeAndre Brackensick "Endless Love" Jeremy Rosado "Gravity" Shannon Magrane "Go Light Your World" Colton Dixon & Skylar Laine "Don't You Wanna Stay" Hollie Cavanagh & Jessica Sanchez "Eternal Flame"

  10. I'll resume this tomorrow. Anyone who wants to submit rankings for Elliott's first album have until tonight at 11:59 PM EST to do so.
  11. Still one of my favorite television moments. I was rooting for Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to win (that was my #1), but I have no issues with Boy Meets World (my #4) winning.
  12. I guess Top 3 isn't too bad. Friends is winning this, isn't it?
  13. * Remembers when Jen and Elise both sang One And Only in the Top 12 Girls Round with Elise's version being vastly superior, resulting in Elise advancing to the finals and Jen being picked to sing and stinking up the joint in the WC Round. *
  14. Round 2: Aaron Marcellus - Never Can Say Goodbye Erika Van Pelt - I Believe In You And Me Erika Van Pelt - New York State Of Mind Elise Testone - Bold As Love
  15. Yes to Seinfeld being in the Bottom 5! I never got into the Seinfeld craze. Ugh at Sister, Sister just missing out on the Top 10. Double ugh at Saved By The Bell and Married...With Children missing out on the Top 5. Considering how much dislike SBTB seems to have, I guess I should be happy it made it to #7. Tiffani Thiessen and Lark Voorhies before she went off the deep end.
  16. #7! The Clues: - Could have something colorful in common with another Top 10 act - Has a license to kill anyone with vocals - Was eliminated in another show in a week in which the buzz should've been strong 7. Bee/Gladys Knight Season 1: Third Place Bee - Chandelier Bee - Locked Out Of Heaven Bee - Wrecking Ball Bee - What’s Love Got To Do With It Bee - (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman Bee - I Can’t Make You Love Me Bee Unmasking Coming in at lucky #7 is an insect that brought a lot of sweetness to TMS! Bee was certainly one of the more impressive acts during S1 and in general. The costume was designed well outside of the mask. If I had to pick my favorite parts, they would be the wings and the open stinger with the four thin black legs on it. Finally, the honeycomb-like collar was a nice design touch. Beyond that, Bee gave us some of the strongest vocal performances on the show. Speaking of which, let’s get right into it. Bee began her TMS run with Chandelier, which is a difficult song to sing. However, she gave a strong vocal, and I was very familiar with the voice from the get-go. She followed that with Locked Out Of Heaven, which was a lot of fun. My favorite parts were the “uhs” and Joel McHale's booty shaking dance. With that said, the drapes in the background were kind of distracting. Bee then gave one of my favorite vocal performances the next time she took the stage with Wrecking Ball. Funny enough, I’m not a Miley Cyrus fan, but WB is a song I’ve always liked. It’s in my Top 5 S1 TMS performances, and I’d go as far as saying Bee’s version is my favorite rendition of the song. She came back the next time with What’s Love Got To Do With It. She was vocally strong as always; however, my favorite parts are the hip shakes during the pre-chorus and Ken’s actions during the whole performance. Next was A Natural Woman, which was a very soulful performance. With that said, the main thing I noticed was her mouth moving underneath the mask’s mouth. In addition to this, Kelly kind of spoiled me on the song because all I can hear is the whistle note during the “you make me feel so alive” part. Back to Bee, she would make it to the finals where she sang a really pretty version of I Can’t Make You Love Me. If there was anything to criticize over this performance, it was the rising platform and the creepy looking dancers. Having said that, I hoped she’d at least finish in the Top 2; however, she placed third when it was all said and done. I think the main thing that hurt her was the perception of the performance not being as dynamic as Peacock’s or Monster’s; then again, who really knows how the voting works in this show. Regardless, she was unmasked as R&B/soul legend Gladys Knight. I knew it was her from the beginning. I picked up on the hints from the first clue package, with the main one being empress because her nickname is The Empress of Soul. Hearing her sing from the first note confirmed it. I loved how almost everyone, from the regular panel to the guest singers, knew it was her almost instantly. Kenan Thompson was all “everyone knows that’s Gladys Knight”. Speaking of whom, I liked his speech to her after her unmasking. Of course, Ken had to be contrarian and was adamant about Bee being Anita Baker. The last thing I’ll say is that I would definitely buy any recordings of the songs Bee sang because she still has the voice, plus I think she’s the best of the soul divas to do the soul and slayed her more contemporary performances. Overall, Bee was one of the best acts of S1 and one I highly enjoyed. 07. Bee/Gladys Knight: I'll explain the first clue. The something colorful in common was referring to the colors black and yellow. Bee's costume was black and yellow, as are bees in general. In addition, Black And Yellow is a song by Wiz Khalifa AKA Chameleon, who is in the Top 10 of this ranking along with Bee. The other two clues were already explained. The Sensational Six: Monster Fox Rottweiler Frog Sun Seahorse The clues for #6: - Fell short against it natural rival in another habitat - Microphone checka, swingin' sword lecture; closin' down the sector, supreme neck protector - Was invited to fill up a tank and hit the road with a band
  17. No, it was a joke! We just need someone who's as over the top as Donny! How dare they make the video of such iconic television not available?! Whoever did such a thing has no taste! Happy to see you're happy! Oh, I guess I wasn't paying too much attention when they referenced it. I don't have much argument regarding his performances. I kind of noticed you like to bring the drama once in a while. I understand the reasoning of why Archie's was more devastating. I think it has to do with the level of investment because the voters determine who wins whereas it's only a few groups who determine the winner of TMS. Plus the stakes are higher on Idol because the prize is a recording contract whereas it's a trophy and bragging rights on TMS. There's nothing wrong with tooting one's own horn at such an accomplishment! Oh no, you didn't mess up anything. I've been so busy I haven't been able to churn out any rankings or write-ups at the pace I want. Ah, the wonder that is life. 08. I can definitely see how the face can be creepy. I had a feeling this was an act you wouldn't care for. The panel hypes everyone! I didn't feel she was hyped more than most. I'd probably have to check myself in therapy if there are any more lips-based costumes. As you know, I'm not afraid to be critical of acts or people I'm a fan of. Seeing that Frog has yet to be ranked, I like him over her as well; however, I still am a fan of Night Angel. Well, you were the only one to try to guess the clues. I'll try to post #7 tomorrow. I'll see if I have the time. We'll see about the guesses for the clues...
  18. It's fine to submit rankings. I haven't received anything from anyone.
  19. I've been super busy the past few days. I'll get back to this when I have more spare time.
