  1. 1. Ryleigh 2. Victor 3. Pia 4. Zania Hands down the worst team collectively, only Ryleigh delivered. Victor looked like he was having a good time but I was bored. Zania got screwed over so bad though, I was cringing all the way through it.
  2. 1. Rachel 2. Dana 3. Jose 4. Devan 5. Andrew The top 2 are obvious as can be, Jose was okay and nowhere near as bad as the other two.
  3. 1. Gihanna 2. Corey 3. Kenzie 4. Zae The first two were pretty good, Kenzie was fine, and Zae was just rough.
  4. 1. Anna 2. Jordan 3. Pete 4. Cam They all did well though, but this is just my preference.
  5. BLAKE: Anna Grace - Feels Like Home (Chantal Kreviazuk) Cam Anthony - Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word (Elton John) Emma Caroline - You All Over Me (Taylor Swift) Jordan Matthew Young - The River (Bruce Springsteen) Pete Mroz - Say (John Mayer) JOHN: Carolina Rial - Chains (Tina Arena) Pia Renee - Many Rivers to Cross (Jimmy Cliff) Ryleigh Modig - Sunny Came Home (Shawn Colvin) Victor Solomon - Lately (Stevie Wonder) Zania Alake - Only Love Can Hurt Like This (Paloma Faith) KELLY: Corey Ward - Bleeding Love (Leona Lewis) Gihanna Zoƫ - Dreams (The Cranberries) Kenzie Wheeler - You Save Me (Kenny Chesney) Savanna Woods - Me and Bobby McGee (Janis Joplin) Zae Romeo - Supermarket Flowers (Ed Sheeran) NICK: Andrew Marshall - Collide (Howie Day) Dana Monique - I've Got to Use My Imagination (Gladys Knight) Devan Blake Jones - Jubilee Road (Tom Odell) Jose Figueroa Jr. - This is the Moment (Jekyll & Hide) Rachel Mac - Ruby Tuesday (Melanie)
  6. Great (such a stacked night) 1. Zania 2. Gihanna 3. Savanna 4. Rachel 5. Anna 6. Cam 7. Carolina 8. Zae Not my favorite thing, but solid enough 9. Kenzie 10. Rio Just meh 11. Emma 12. Avery 13. Devan Only one I can say that actually flopped 14. Connor
  7. What a night, no one really bombed imo. 1. Pia: Probably the most unexpected surprise of the night for me. Her best performance by a long shot. 2. Corey: Really good, but my only nitpick is he might have tried a bit too hard at places to sound like Sleeping At Last (I know it's their version but still) 3. Dana: Ok she absolutely crushed it. It was intense from start to finish, though I generally prefer more peaks and valleys in between. The performance got a bit repetitive by the third verse, but still great. 4. Gean: I know the song doesn't go much anywhere, but I really like and connect with this performance for some reason. Pretty cute how everyone clapped along while he sang too. 5. Andrew: The song choice had me rolling my eyes, but I was delightfully surprised at what he did with it. 6. Jordan: Squarely middle of the pack, but I still like it. He's awkward on stage without his guitar though. 7. Victor: Eh I could do with not having to listen to this song again, he did well enough but it was still cheesy and karaoke. Mostly the song's fault though, I think he's better than that. 8. Pete: Not the best version of this song that I've heard, but still solid. He might need some stage choreography though, his pacing back and forth looked kinda uncomfortable to me. 9. Ethan: Don't know why but I was pretty convinced he was winning this KO, a little relieved he didn't. 10. Ryleigh: May be unpopular, but if solely based on this performance, I don't think she should be stolen. Way overusing her head voice here, while the song calls for more belting to make it work. Also did the second verse sound off-timing or out of pocket to anyone else? The instrumental in that part sounded off to me. 11. Keegan: It was pleasant enough, despite all the pitch problems. 12. Ciana: The song was just too big, it was messy but she did put up a fight.

  9. 1. Desz 2. Bailey 3. Carter 4. Ian 5. Jim 6. Cami 7. Ben 8. John 9. Tamara
  10. DeSz - Only Love Can Hurt Like This (Paloma Faith) Cami Clune - Running Up That Hill (Kate Bush) Carter Rubin - Footprints in the Sand (Leona Lewis) Ben Allen - Even If It Breaks Your Heart (Eli Young Band) John Holiday - Blue Moon (Ella Fitzgerald) Tamara Jade - War Cry (Queen Naija) Bailey Rae - Wasn't It Good (Tina Arena) Ian Flannigan - Poison & Wine (The Civil Wars) Jim Ranger - Help (John Farnham)
  11. 1. Tamara: Oh she has arrived!! This is much better than anything she's done in the taped rounds. 2. Payge: I'd never have expected to hear this song on this show, period. The arrangement is so slick and cool, and her artistry just continues to impress me. 3. Chloe: I think she gave the single coolest performance of the night. Sadly, I don't see her being voted through or saved. 4. Bailey: It's not without issues but I really liked her performance for some reason. 5. Cami: First performance of hers that makes me sorta understand the hype. She was pretty good with this song, even though I think it still required a little more vocal firepower than she's capable of or comfortable doing. The ending was really nice though. 6. Ben: Okay I must admit that was good. I didn't hear any twangy affectations he used to have in his past performances, and he seemed more comfortable on stage too. 7. Desz: It's a solid B+ performance, but I'm still worried about her since she had to open to show with this number. It just wasn't up to the level of expectation that I had for her. 8. Ian: He recovered well after a lackluster KO, though for me there's still something lacking that I'm not quite sure yet. 9. Carter: A cheesy song, but he sang it well enough, except for towards the end where he ran out of breath at one point. But Mariah's catalogue is not easy to tackle, so I'll give him that. 10. Taryn: She doesn't deserve that many dislikes for this performance. It wasn't even bad. A little rough, yes, but not bad. Love the song choice though. 11. Sid: I don't necessarily think the song is the problem. He did sing it well, but overall everything was a tad forgettable. 12. Madeline: One of my favorite songs currently, but it's so weird hearing it not as a duet. The harmony in the chorus is what makes the song for me, and I wasn't getting it from this one. Also, she was kinda all over the place vocally. 13. Joseph: Not a fan of the arrangement at all, especially on a song like this. I didn't find that many issues with his singing, but it's probably because I was getting bored. 14. WTW: The middle one's got such a pretty tone and sang her solo part well, but the other two were terribly rough. Altogether, they didn't seem to gel as much this time. You can literally see and hear the harmonies going flat. 15. John: I can definitely say it was better than his KO, but I just can't get past his tone. 16. Jim: This was disappointing, mainly because of the song. 17. Tanner: I think I want whatever Kelly's having. She seemed so genuinely excited for such a weak and tepid performance. I guess the bar for country males really is underground. Honorary mentions to Larriah's, Julia's, and Ryan's studios. They are all pretty decent.

  13. Kelly: I have a hunch they're gonna give an uptempo song to Tanner. Or at least I hope they do. It's gonna be a sight to see. John: Probably Bailey? Since she seems to be the greenest and John doesn't have a clue what to do with her. I could see her getting something like 'Suds in the Bucket'. Gwen: I think Joseph might just be boring, not trainwreck potential. Maybe Carter if his voice drops. Blake: WTW. It's pretty likely for their harmonies to get messy live, I think.
  14. The 4-way KO was really good. The other 2 normal KOs, not so much. 1. Julia - I know she's pretty much doomed from the start with the song choice lol, but she was the best of the night for me. She's the indie girl that should have been guaranteed a spot instead of Cami, based on the performances tonight. 2. Ryan - He did great too, and is probably the winner of the KO. I just prefer Julia a little more, but I won't complain if he wins. 3. Larriah - Pretty solid, but she had some small pitch problems in there. She gave me Kennedy Holmes vibes, but not as polished. The song is kinda boring for me though. 4. Taryn - Props to her for picking a monster of a song. Did she deliver? Eh. There were some strong parts, but damn this song is like vocal suicide. I like her emotional delivery though. 5. Marisa - Even though she obviously deserved to win her KO based on track record, I can't really say she was robbed. The first half of the song was just weird and muddling. It's such an iconic song but I honestly couldn't tell where she was going with the melody or whether she had any direction at all. The big notes were impressive, but yeah they weren't enough to make me forget the first part. 6. Cami - I'm so bored with Cami already lol. Might be an unpopular opinion, but I did not enjoy this performance at all. It was just basically just her singing and dragging out some syllables and affectations at the end of almost every line, then predictably throwing in some head voice at some point. The song itself meandered around and didn't go anywhere. She's basically coasting on her tone. 7. Tanner - It sounded like a cringey bro-country number. Terrible song, average vocal. There's been a lot of country acts surviving the KO, some more justified than others. This was definitely the least justified. 8. John - He could hit all these notes and sing Celine's song in her key, which doesn't mean that he should. I kinda get how some would see this as impressive, but I just saw it as shrill and screechy. And the high notes were high, but they didn't sound powerful or comfortable at all. I think he was just too ambitious, he should have tried it several steps down so he could show off his lower range in the verse and still have plenty of room to hit big notes in the chorus.
  15. 1. Madeline: I definitely didn't expect to love this as much as I did. That was a near perfect performance imo. I really felt what she was singing, and for me that's the most important thing about music. 2. Desz: I don't know the song but she made me like it. It's unbelievable how she went from those low notes at the start to those big glory notes. And that amount of control is perfect. 3. Jim: I think this might be his breakout moment. What a powerful and authentic performance. 4. Chloe: I kinda forgot about her before this tbh. But she really turned it out, that was a lot better than I expected. Not sure about her chances going forward though, as I don't know if she's popular enough to get votes. 5. Carter: He's more believable this time round, but I was a little distracted by his hand gestures though. Easily his best so far. And lol at Gwen's "my baby" when Chloe hadn't even sung yet. 6. Bailey: A pleasant and enjoyable performance imo. It's nothing groundbreaking, but I like her enough. 7. Sid: He definitely tried to tone it down a little, but this time I have a new pet peeve, which is every time he sang "oooooh..." before a line. It's quite a lot and it's distracting for me. But still a good performance overall. 8. Ian: He's still got one of my favorite tones out of everyone, but yeah this wasn't really a step up. 9. Lauren: The arrangement threw me off, it sucked out the fire and intensity out of the original. Unlike her battle, I didn't believe or feel a single word she sang. And her stage presence didn't sell it either, she was basically just standing still in one spot with the whole time. You can't do that with this classic. 10. Kelsie: Oh dear. She's got a great voice, but her delivery was so theatrical and melodramatic that it came off as try-hard and a little desperate. 11. Jus Jon: I loathe this song so much, and he didn't do anything to change that. 12. James: Yikes, that was rough. They might have done him a favor by shortclipping that.
