By the way, someone in the past day posted Sharane Calister's KO on youtube! The username + the previous videos make it pretty clear they're from IDF too :haha:, so they may have even done it 'cause people here commented on it 👀

 

Wow, that's amazing, I can die peacefully now 😌 Wouldn't it be crazy if they also posted Luna Searles' (robbed queen) "Nutbush City Limits" performance, Adam Cunningham and Natalie Stovall's battle of "Boondocks", or Brittnee Camille and Melissa Jimenez's battle of "Give It To Me Right" hahaha....

I’ve been rewatching all the Blinds lately, so:

 

My List for Best Auditions of Season 20 (not in any order): 

 

Cam Anthony (He’s one of the only 2 contestants whose fan thread I asked to join the same day of their audition. Period. His tone, delivery, belts, riffs, everything was on point. Plus, this audition is such a *replayable* one. It was exactly what an audition should be: powerful enough to warrant 4 chairs, but subdued enough that you KNOW it’s nowhere near the person’s best.) 

 

Raine Stern (Raine is an artist and a half and more. She brought such flavour to this performance that it was undeniable. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the guitar riff at the beginning.) 

 

Dana Monique (This was so enthralling and I just wanted to get up and dance. My favourite Dana performance. I don’t think we appreciate how well she did upbeat songs. The speed of ballads gives you LOTS of room to do complex riffs and to flip songs and emote. That’s another factor for why so many of the buses on this show come from upbeat songs. You have to navigate them before you can personalize them and most artists just don’t have that level of proficiency. That’s okay in the industry because you can write music that suit your strengths, but when you’re on this show, you only have so much creative freedom. :(  ) 

 

Avery Roberson (This audition is the only audition since S13 that has made me cry. I cry every time I rewatch it. Say what you will about his vocal delivery, but if he can make a perfectionist like me ignore missed notes, I’d argue that’s really special.) 

 

Carolina Rial (#toocoolforIDF) (Y’all complained about the runs and I kind of get that. But with this upbeat arrangement, her runs drove and conducted the performance forward. That’s why I would argue that they were all well-placed. It takes lots of proficiency to do that and her performance was exhilarating for me.) 

 

Lindsay Joan (I spent 1.5 hours one day trying to find a better cover of this song because I was hoping someone had a full version. Every single cover paled in comparison to Lindsay’s. Yes, I agree that the beginning and ending low notes weren’t perfect, but she was sick at the time. She said that when she’s sick, her lower register disappears. Despite that, I thought it was a brilliant and nuanced interpretation.) 

 

Halley Greg (This arrangement really spoke to me and I loved it. I thought the bridge was subdued in an impactful way. Her tone just shined and some of her riffs blew me away. The ending almost made me cry a few times. I believed her when she was singing and I really felt it.) 


Victor Solomon (He achieved it impossible. Gotta commend him for that + the beautiful vocal.) 

 

Deion Warren (His TONE, OMLLLL. His riffs are so creative and he really told the story of the song, ESPECIALLY the beginning.) 

 

Savanna Chestnut (Her TONE is magical. I agree with everything @Bk1234said in her S20 ranking.) 

 

Savanna Woods (Right away, I felt an abundance of personality + the IDGAF attitude that I love so much. Sometimes when artists are auditioning, I feel bad thinking about how they’ll feel if no one turns. The show pre much sets us up to feel that way by giving us backstory beforehand. But with her, even if she’d gotten no chairs, I genuinely don’t think she’d be phased and I don’t think I’d feel “sad” for her (I’d be enraged instead🤣.)The performance was just so confident.) 

 

Durell Anthony (The first note by itself was enough to warrant a spot on this spot. It RANGGGGG in such a piercing way and I was shook. He has so much control over his vocals and this performance really showed that.)

Check out Victor's stories on IG. Nish, Rio, Emma and Anna sounded incredible. 

Keegan plays piano, and I think I saw Ethan

Yeah, they all sounded great. Keegan sang as well (look at Andrew’s story.) He sounded great!

During S16, when did IDF start believing  👑 Maelyn could win?
And then when was IDF “confident” on     👑 Maelyn winning?


Pretty sure she was a contender since the blinds. 4-chair turn from Team Legend  + aired on the premiere was a really good position to be in.

Probably my favorite from S1. Her blind is just ok, nothing exciting, but Heartless and Losing My Religion are so good. Definitely recommend watching those.

IIRC:

 

Top 13 was her moment in believing there was a shot for her to contend. Gyth still existed, but I thought she could at least make the Top 2. Especially with her receiving the Apple Music bonus.

 

Top 4 Cover and her stats gave an indicator that she had a shot. I still gave 50/50 though, Team Blake was a pain that season.

 

I was never confident, but I knew she had a shot, so there's that.

It was clear around the cross battles that it would come down to her and Gyth, then Gyth pulled a Kirk, and rest was a formality.

It became pretty clear that at least she was gonna make the Top 2 after Cross Battles. It was between her and Gyth. I remember many thinking Gyth had it due to his  Top 8 song choice, but he didn´t pull it off, so it was a given.

 

Before Cross Battles though, (and even some after that), the majority thought Jej was going to be her main competition. It quickly became clear that it wasn´t gonna be the case though.

I called Jej’s “support” smoke and mirrors from the beginning. He was never a threat.

You probably did, but I remember some others who were pretty sure that he was gonna go far. I was kinda in the middle. Gyth did stick out to me as a more realistic competitor for Maelyn.

I just saw the comments on the journey video for Kennedy Holmes and a lot of the people commenting were mad that she didn't win and said that Chevel only won because she was country, despite being monotonous throughout the season. I wasn't around to watch season 15 so did Chevel really only win because of the country fans and was Kennedy robbed of the season 15 title?

No, her age also played a part and no, Kennedy wasn’t robbed lol. Chevel was one of the most consistent that season. She wasn’t monotonous either, that’s just a common thing country haters say. She showed her versatility in “Little White Church” and “Blue” and gave emotional performances too with “Space Cowboy” and “Broken Hearts.”

Chevel had some amazing performances & was one of the most (if not the most) consistent contestants that season. Should Kennedy have placed higher? 💯 Was she robbed? Nope.

IMO both Chevel and Kennedy made it farther than they should have. It's insane that the top 4 was Chevel, Kirk, Chris, and Kennedy in a season with Kymberli Joye, Natasia, Zaxai, RADHA, Abby Cates (even though she got bussed she still deserved better), and MAKENZIE THOMAS.

Also totally random note, but I just saw that the "infamous" Jeremiah Miller from S13 made an IG post a while ago describing how his mom illegally recorded his KO rehearsal and pretended to delete it, but he kept it as proof that the good parts of his KO got cut out? He also mentioned how he very clearly didn't want to sing "Sorry", but the producers forced him into picking it, and he wanted to clap back at the coaches when they told him it was a bad song choice, but he didn't want to risk his chances of missing out on the Coach's Comeback :wacko: He would've been steamrolled by Noah no matter what song he chose, but he did sound slightly better in the clip he posted and it shows how real bussing is.

She was so bad in the playoffs, I’m just going to assume this is a troll comment.
