Of course Zach has the best reaction shot
Mmmm a Carpet sandwich. This looks like a shot from a weird porno.
- Charlie sounds like crap. His voice is actually kind of like Cory Monteith’s, whose voice isn’t great, either.
- Oh my god previously I though Abe was the worst lip syncher on this show, but now I’m thinking it’s Tyler. He wasn’t even close!
- I have to begrudgingly admit that Shannananna sounds good
- What’s with this Lily Mae stuff? Erik kept calling her that, too. Also, using the slut card might have been a bit more convincing on another person. You ALL know who I’m talking about.
Oh come on! That’s not what iPhone texts look like!
- The end is very “Seasons of Love”
Sooo, time for the bottom (and top) three. I’ll guess Charlie because they were all hating on him for the cane thing, Wheelchair Barbie because she wasn’t good in the vocal sesh, and I don’t know who else. Lily maybe?
They all loved Blake’s acting and call him first.
They want Nellis to commit a little more, and she says she gets embarrassed easily. Draaaama about Charlie and the cane. He apologizes to Blind Side. Wheelchair Barbie is too perky and her faces are too wild. Blind Side is pitchy. Oh there we go, he says he’s classically trained. That’s the kiss of death. He also says the word “zellious.” That’s not a word.
The bottom three are Charlie, Blind Side, and Lily.
Lily- “Mercy,” by Duffy
Blind Side- “Over the Rainbow”
Charlie- “Fix You” by Coldplay
Nikki’s silver shirt is not maternity wear. I don’t think she wants to admit she’s preg.
During the short clip, we see Charlie and I think Blake in “superhero” costumes acting like buffoons. I have no words. Theater kids.
I would literally bet my life’s savings that that is Carpet’s bra
Last Chance Performances
Lily looks like a thirty’s movie star who went to town at KFC. Vocally she nails the song. Ryan says she’s not an underdog. That’s true, just because she’s fat doesn’t mean she’s a loser. She starts crying because she loves ballads and just wants to perform with her and her piano. She says everything is a mask to hide her 240 pounds, but that’s not easy to do.
Charlie- Of course Ryan loves Coldplay. No gay man doesn’t like them. Charlie butchers this song, IMO. He completely changes the phrasing and notes. I hate it. He claims he loves the song, but what he is singing can barely be called the same song. But of course Ryan was inspired by it. Ryan says he couldn’t love him more and it was maybe the favorite thing he’s ever seen on the show. I think that always being worried that someone has no clue what they’re doing and will miss their note isn’t good.
Now I realize what’s so weird about Blind Side’s singing voice. It sounds nothing like his speaking voice! He sounds like a sultry white guy on the verge of a breakdown when singing. The way he doesn’t move at all when singing is kind of awkward, too. He sounds pretty good, though. He cries, of course, but I’m so annoyed by his overly-proper way of speaking that I have no pity. Random thought- it must feel weird to cry as a blind person.
Ryan Murphy looks like a little gay drummer boy.
They’ll probably cut Lily. She was already up there once. But honestly, they were all good-ish, and this show is so sappy that I have a sneaking suspicion this will be a fake-out everyone gets to stay week. Since Taryn left they have an extra week to kill anyway.
Blind Side tells everyone that he heard that other voices were off pitch as well so he didn’t understand why he was up there. He definitely thinks he’s amazing, it’s obvious. Magic Carpet is bothered by his comment, which is odd because he didn’t mention her name (or anyone’s). She also says that he always wants to make people listen to him but they can never talk. They all say the things he says come out wrong. It’s pretty damn boring drama, to be honest.
