How does the steal work, I forget.
DH only tuned in last year when the live voting started, so i was trying to explain the whole process to him. He said something similar, but about Blake's team. i told him not to worry too much. Remember all the auditions they don't really show, they just do a quick "This coach got this guy and this guy..." I noticed last season those quick ones didn't make it out of the battles.

The steal is after the battle when the coach picks the winner, the other coaches have the opportunity to pick up the loser for their team. If more than one coach hits the button, again the choice goes to the singer. But there are a set number of steals. And out of all of the steals last season, I'm pretty sure Amanda Brown was the only one that made it to the live rounds. Everyone else got cut by their new coach in the head-to-head.

I think each judge had two steals; anyone else remember for sure? Of course, they could change it again this year. I think the steal idea came about after Xtina surprisingly let Jesse Campbell go in Season 2, when many considered him the front-runner.

Man do I feel sorry for those folks who have Shakira as a coach.

Last night she sounded like she was on drugs.

Tonight we can see the effects of poor coaching on her singers.

I like Shakira, I don't see that all about her

I think Adam and Blake have the best teams. I really like Adam country singer, she amazing best of best.

What did we think of the "voting discrepancies" last night?
I think it is BS on NBC's part. How can the online and text votes not count? That only leaves phone votes, correct? And DH and I don't call in, we are too lazy to write down the phone number. And I'm pretty sure we aren't the only household that does so. I don't see how they can arbitrarily throw out 3/4 of the voting methods and assume there will be no difference in results.
The last two seasons (since I've been watching) the itunes chart is a pretty reliable gauge of results. I'm pretty sure that is has been spot on every time. So how is it that the last place in downloads for Team Adam is the first one saved?
I'm saying something doesn't smell right.

And is it back to one person from each team goes home instead of the lowest votes, regardless of team? If so, that sucks. I prefer the latter. I guess they had to change it since last season there were only two coaches in the finale?

The season 2 winner, Jermaine, did very poorly on itunes as I recall and won the whole show. I didn't take the itunes results seriously after that. They're probably a drop in the bucket. I also recall Melanie Martinez doing extremely well on itunes and she was cut before the finals. I wasn't surprised by any of the votes this week, but I did personally disagree with the results for Team Shakira. That's just due to my taste though.

I've watched the show pretty religiously the last couple of years, but I just can't get into this season as much. I liked the change in judges, but the one contestant who really excited me was Jessica Childress and she was gone so early. I just find that I don't look forward to what the contestants are going to do each week.

Last season, Nicholas and Terry were so unique and I really looked forward to their performances each week. This year, there's no one like that, IMHO.

They HAD to address it, the FB page was up and working for votes the first night but the second night the only way to vote was on the phone or to buy the iTunes song. Needless to say the uproar was insane. I can't imagine that this was fair, I didn't get a chance to vote either but my faves did go thru.

Yes, one person from every team went home.

The only shock for me was Karina from team Shakira. She kept Garrett over her.

Team Adam lost Caroline Glaser

Team Blake sent home Justin Rivers

Team Usher cut Cathia.

oh thank you, I found three of the four on FB of who went home. I actually like Garrett. So happy Cathia went home as well.

The one who is over rated IMO, is Judith.

I liked Jessica Childress, but apparently I know nuthin'!

I also liked Karina and would have certainly picked her over Garrett. I don't think he has any charisma; I don't get it.

Out of the other 3 cuts, I barely remember Justin Rivers or Caroline Glaser. I was happy to see Cathia go; I don't even understand why Usher saved her.

I'm guessing Judith Hill for the win.

I was sad that Blake sent Justin home. I don't care for that one girl on Adam team with the black hair and glasses she could have went home.

I think it's between Judith and Sasha, they obviously like both of them.

Vedo sang at my friend's wedding, hopefully he goes far. He's a sweet guy.
