TO BE CONTINUED: America sends Taryn, Team Blake, to the Live Shows . Ryan (sob) Team Kelly, had to leave the competition so his votes will not count.
They will go from 17 to 9 with this first vote.
Desz - "What's Love Got To Do With It?" Her background shot is a cultured Lavender field. John thinks she is an assassin. Kelly says...you're everything Texas woman wants to be in a Texas woman.
Madeline - "What If I Never Get Over You?" She slowly walks down stairs. Builds to a nice crescendo. Blake noting that that was the second country song in a row. Kelly thinks the way she opens her voice is so beautiful.
Tanner - "Lovin On You" greeted with a female scream from one of the video screens that act as audience. He makes Kelly happy with his honky tonk swing.
Cami - "Never Tear Us Apart" pop singer, with emotional vibe. Kelly says she is so cool and sexy.
Payge - "it's Going To Be Me" plays electric guitar, blood red circle as her background. Carson - felt like a James Bond opening sequence.
Ben - "There Goes My Life" - stolen from her fiance, Blake (as noted by Carson). Gwen feels lucky to have him on her team - enjoyed the way he stripped down the song.
Joseph - "How Deep is Your Love" - takes it Indie with beats in slow time. Gwen says he showed a whole new side.
Carter - "Hero" - sings with passion for one so young. He has the voice of an old soul. Gwen is honored to get to know him. He just turned 15.
Jim - "Rumor" - puts his stamp on the song. Blake says he is unbelievably talented and is excited for his chances on the show.
Worth The Wait - "Love Is Alive" - a tight trio . Blake thinks they stepped up to the next level; he feels like a proud parent.
Ian -"If You Feel My Love" - (to me) he sounds like so many other male country singers. Blake is grinning, but Gwen was fussing with her costume. Jeez - they all stood - I didn't hear what they heard.
Taryn - "I Hope You're Happy Now" - she was saved by America's vote - Blake thinks she can follow through.
Sid - "With Beyond" - plays piano - attacks microphone - has some nice gravel - Blake - unbelievably talented.
Tamara Jade - "Crazy" - attitude plus - great stage movement - finishes with a crazed laugh. John calls her a super star - she owned the stage. (She is the one I would vote for)
Chloe - "My Future" - love her quietly soulful voice - terrific technique - gorgeous - all stand for her and this time I see it. John - graceful and tasteful
Bailey Rae - "Sweet Music Man" - very country in voice and attitude - lovely voice - John - you sounded so perfect and classic.
John - "Fly Me To The Moon" his high-pitched voice that can go deep is both effective and disturbing. John - you've shown us so much - jazz, opera, glad I got to work with you.
We'll see when this actually airs....my schedule has an 8:30 slot TBD on Tuesday, but still shows it for Thursday. However, there were ads for the Christmas Special on Thursday...so...(ellipses galore)
Airing Tuesday 12/1 8 PM
