Cee-lo: You know you did good.
Because both comments are pretty much meaningless, she goes with Christina.
We then meet Gracia Harrison. Gracia yodels. I think that says it all, but I will elaborate. She has done state fair shows and has a very Kelli Pickler-esque style. She is determined to yodel them into turning around.
They could ease up on the pink spotlights.
Adam, who is grinning like a jackass: You are the best country singer on this show.
Blake: You know the right thing to do.
Cee-lo: You are an absolute original
Gracia inevitably picks Blake.
Our next contestant is Garret Gardner. He is 16. His dad was a jazz musician who died when he was 14. He looks like an edgier version of a Jonas brother. He sings ‘Have You Ever Seen The Rain’. In a heartbreaking turn, nobody turns around. Blake tells him that he has a unique sound, but needs to learn control. Christina cougars out and calls him a cutie and wishes she had pushed her button. I’m sure she can push her button all she wants later, but ease up on lusting after teenage boys.
Carson gives us a quick team count: Blake – 2, Christina – 1, Adam and Cee-lo – 0.
Next up is Devyn Deloera. She claims to have been an oddball growing up because she was artsy. In 8th grade she sang in front of people and realized that was her dream. It really pisses me off when disgustingly beautiful people bitch about their ‘oddball’ or ‘awkward’ phase. I’m less pissed of when I see her performance. She sings ‘Ain’t No Other Man’. Her dancing is painful to watch seems so forced. She is also singing so fast that she looks like she is going to pass out from lack of oxygen. Despite her horrific dance moves, Christina, Adam and Blake turn around.
You poor, oddball freak
Christina: I want to nourish you. (I don’t even know what the hell that means.)
Adam: That was a very courageous choice.
Blake: You’re a powerful singer, like a superstar.
I think they are all higher than shit, but she ends up picking Christina.
Bryan Keith is next. His dad is a Latin musician, but Bryan wants to succeed on his own. He sings ‘It Will Rain’. Carson is very excited because he is the first four button contestant.
I stared at this picture for ten freaking minutes trying to figure out what the hell is pinned through his damn ear.
Adam: I am passionate about having you on my team. You are very special.
Blake: One of us had passion first.
Christina: You have a raw quality, a signature voice.
Cee-lo: Feels good.
Bryan decides on Adam, which I think may have something to do with the death stare that Adam was giving him. Just saying.
