  1. We’ve also never had someone quite like Wendy before (in terms of the sheer volume and variety of pre-show experiences in the music industry), and I’d imagine there’s at least a few casual viewers of the show who might not keep up with her closely but wonder how she’s doing post-fall.
  2. Without Jesse vs. Anthony in Season 2, we never would’ve gotten Amanda to the live shows in Season 3 (since there wouldn’t have been motivation to implement battle steals, and Amanda lost her battle), so I voted for them.
  3. I’d pity the poor souls who’d have to go through the pre-lives footage to censor out every swear word she drops in her pitches/feedback, it’d take them forever
  4. The thing that kills me most is that you don’t even have to experience that oppression to acknowledge it exists and that it’s a problem, and yet…here we are. If she wants to be the female Morgan Wallen, then that’s on her. She’s within her rights to do that, but the rest of us are free to call her out when she says things like “racism doesn’t exist in country music” that are just straight up untrue.
  5. I’m gonna keep it short and just do Season 13 onwards. S13: Ignatious Carmouche S14: Stephanie Skipper, Genesis Diaz S15: Natalie Brady S16: Mikaela Astel, Rizzi Myers, LiLi Joy, Cecily Hennigan, Trey Rose S17: Injoy Fountain, Dane & Stephanie, Mendeleyev S18: Zach Day, Jacob Daniel Murphy, Kailey Abel S19: Liam St. John, Rio Souma S20: Lindsay Joan, Durrell Anthony, Bradley Sinclair S21: KJ Jennings, Parker McKay
  6. Kat’s is a blast and a half every time, but Christina’s is iconic tier for a reason. In poll two, GNT wins it but Katie and Todd were also pretty good. Were the groups more evenly distributed (for example, S11-21 in the second group vs. S1-10 in group one), I’d have gone for Chris and it wouldn’t be close
  7. Sarah S takes this for me, but Sarah P vs. Hannah is #2 on the list (and honestly is a battle that doesn’t get talked about nearly enough).
  8. My top 3 was pretty much locked in, but 4-10 are pretty much interchangeable on where I’d rank them (it was easy to get them into the top 10, but within that was a massive pain to decide which artist went where ) Given 70% of this overlaps with my own top 10, it’s a solid list (Zae and Victor both just barely missed the top 10 as it was, and if I was only looking at his lives Jordan would’ve likely made the top third of my list).
  9. A solid ranking - considering how good the entire cast of the season is, picking just a few names is hard.
  10. Stephanie’s my personal favorite, but Amy, Danielle, and Michelle are in a three-way tie for second place.
  11. If we were looking just at Pete’s pre-lives and just at Jordan’s lives, both would be up at least five spots. In the context of their whole runs, I had to make adjustments somewhere. Savanna, had we seen one last performance from her, would’ve easily been up a couple spots, but I couldn’t quite justify having her higher due to her short run (and yes, I acknowledge that having Lindsay even higher than her despite fewer performances means that logic makes no sense). Pia/Rachel/Anna I think was the trio that was overall hardest for me to decide who went where, so I went with who stylistically I’d be most likely to keep up with post show.
  12. The overall top 5 was pretty straightforward for me, but ranking within the top 5 was difficult Savanna could’ve been higher if we’d gotten to see her in the playoffs, but her three performances all kicked ass so having her in the top 10 was a no-brainer for me. She’s not for everyone, but Dana (as I’ll tackle in her write-up) was someone I had a blast watching, which is how she made it to my top 5.
  13. I got 25/32, which considering how much I joke about being tone deaf was a pleasant surprise
  14. I have the writeups for #4 and #5 done, the top 3 should be done by tomorrow but that's TBD depending on how much time I get to tackle other chores I haven't done yet this weekend.
  15. …I’ll be honest, a small part of why Lindsay’s up that high (besides being a very solid vocalist) is the fact she gives off the vibe of the type of woman I’d have a massive crush on but be way too socially awkward to approach IRL Anyway, top 5 write-ups should be out this weekend, depending on when I have a chance to work on them.
  16. SPEED RUN, ROUND 3: Catch Me If You Can 10. Savanna Woods (Team Kelly) Genre: Rock Favorite Performance: Black Hole Sun (knockout) 9. Pia Renee (Team Legend) Genre: R&B/Reggae Favorite Performance: What The World Needs Now (knockout) 8. Rachel Mac (Team Nick) Genre: Folk Favorite Performance: Rainbow (playoffs) 7. Anna Grace (Team Kelly --> Team Blake) Genre: Indie/Jazz/Pop Favorite Performance: If I Die Young (knockout) 6. Lindsay Joan (Team Nick) Genre: Pop Favorite Performance: Nightmare (blind audition)
  17. I like Pete as a person more than as a vocalist (and his last two performances bumped him down a few spots), which is the main reason he was in the first part of the speed run over the second.
  18. At least it wasn't one of the guys on the team considering the options Team Nick had that night. Not the point of the thread though, I'll stop derailing
  19. Rachel, because I didn't expect her to get the PV after that (but she did, and it was well-deserved).
  20. Jordan mainly landed at #21 because I didn't enjoy him that much until the playoffs, but Gold Dust Woman was enough to keep him in consideration for the #20 spot (I waffled back and forth with him and Kenzie for a while, but ultimately placed Kenzie at 20 because he placed higher on the show + I liked his battle). Carolina grew on me and probably could've made it up to ~12ish had she had more performances over the show, but her short run kept her down in the high teens. Emma's growth in self-confidence + battle with Cam helped her out, but again, her short run kept her from the top 12. Zae and Zania, like Kenzie and Jordan, I flipped between spots, but ultimately Zania's KO gave her an edge over Zae, who I felt peaked at his blind (though his KO was still pretty good). Bk and I agreed a bit more on Season 20 than Season 21, but we still had a fair amount of overlap for Season 21.
  21. tfw Bk finishes two whole rankings in the time it takes you to do one Also, an app spoiler clue would've been icing on the cake for GNT here.
