Restless Road - Fix You

You mean they went out to get some chicks number and nobody wanted to give it to him? :funny:

I think it was a good performance I love their harmonizing the most as usual.

Definitely one of the best performance of the night. I think the staging is definitely sensational and REALLY REALLY fun. He was a great dancer, the vocals were alright.. I think he will be safe for the night.

My ranking for the night:

Rion
Alex and Sierra
Tim
Carlito/Ellona/Josh/Khaya/Jeff
Restless Road
Lillie

My Bottom 3:

Lillie
Restless Road
Ellona (I just didn't feel her performance)

My predicted bottom 2:

Lillie, Khaya

With all the performers GIVING THEIR BEST this week.. I think it's over for two more girls. Oh my God, can they scrape Motown Week FOREVER? Last week everybody sucked and this week everybody's SENSATIONAL!

I hope Khaya stays but I don't normally support guys because I think they are overrated, but I gotta say Tim was REALLY GOOD this week and Carlito... he's got the X Factor and he just needs to work out a really good song choice PLUS good dancing. I think he will be back next week!

Heck, I think Jeff may even be overshadowed by everyone else who's so good.. that if he's in the bottom three, I won't be shocked.

After watching all of the performances, my standout act of the night was Khaya! Stunning performance. Also Tim!

My bottom 3 would have to be, definitely Josh Levi & Restless Road, with the third spot being filled between Jeff/Ellona.

Prediction: Lillie to go straight out, with Restless Road and Jeff/Khaya in the bottom 2, Josh being saved by have previously stunning performances.

I would be sending RR out straight, because the tried to 'countrify?' a song that cannot be changed, and their vocals were poor as were their harmonies.

My friend called me a hater because once I don't like an act, I really don't like them. :funny:

I thought Alex & Sierra and Lillie were the best last night.

I think Tim has a great voice, but he's kind of boring... Khaya's voice still annoys me because it sounds like she's choking and out of breath but she's still trying to force a few notes. I get that it's supposed to be a singing style or whatever, but it just annoys me to death. Once she got to the belty parts, I really enjoyed it.

Didn't like Carlito. Didn't like Restless Road. Didn't like Josh. Didn't like Ellona. Didn't like Rion. Jeff was meh.

I wish the contestants would focus more on their vocals. There's so much staging and dancing and stuff going on, but I don't think the singing is as good as it could or should be. I know that it isn't called The Voice, but still.

Not surprised that Tim went home. Carlito gave one of his better performances, but still weak. Surprised that Khaya went home. I didn't really know that she didn't have a fanbase.

Khaya has no fan base at all.. let's just say she's just on the wrong season. With the other two girls, one being part Pinoy and one having disability.. both of them are naturally gonna have loads of people rooting for them.

And it sucks for Khaya that EVERYONE performed better than mediocre last night. Go look at the Youtube likes and everyone has like more likes than dislikes.

Wow, Tim went home after what I feel was one of his best performance. I really thought he was GOOD last night.. but I guess without the X Factor you really can't go far.

 :(

Tim's final performance

I actually like Tim because he's singing all the old classic songs and although he's not the best singer.. he does sing decent.

If he loses some weight (not being biased against weight issues or anything please), but he's young.. so he needs to go and work for his audience market, which is crazy young girls who loves a singer who sings all these classic WELL. And for that he needs to have an image.. and X Factor, which he lacks now. :(:(

Bye Khaya. Wow, I'm really happy that Lillie and Jeff have their own fan base.

My F6 prediction for now: Ellona, Rion, Restless Road, Alex and Sierra, Josh, Jeff

I'm still sticking with this F6 and think that Carlito and Lillie will be the next two acts gone. But if they continue to give Ellona weird critics, Ellona might be in trouble.

I'm pretty sure Alex and Sierra, Rion and Restless Road is here to stay though.

In general, I thought the performances this week were so much better. Josh, Ellona, Alex & Sierra and Jeff all gave amazing performances. I was afraid for Jeff because singing Feeling Good is death after Carly Rose Sonenclar performed it last season. :funny:

Josh and Ellona are well-rounded performers. I really enjoyed Josh's staging and dancing, and he backed it up with nice vocals too.

Based on the performances, I think Carlito, Lillie and Rion are in trouble... Except Rion will probably be safe... :res:

HOW THE HECK DID JOSH GET ELIMINATED. :stare HE WAS SO MUCH BETTER LAST NIGHT AND IN THE SING-OFF TOO.

So awkward when Paulina introduced Josh in the sing-off as Carlito... :funny:

I actually liked it. But way too slow. Still preferred the original but this isn't too bad.

He made it his own and it was weird for me... but, I guess that's really really good!

Alex & Sierra definitely owned the night. Simon picked 2 great songs, especially Say Something. That was a great move by him (assuming he did pick the song).

I'm hoping Rion and Carlito will go home. Then again, I've been waiting for that to happen since the beginning and it hasn't happened yet. :cmas11

ELLONA? SERIOUSLY? WHAAAAAAAAAAT. That was shocking. I thought she would be in the final for sure...

Both sing-off performances were weak. I wanted Rion and Carlito gone, but I wanted Carlito gone over Rion. Boooo.

I think this pretty much seals an Alex & Sierra win. I thought that it would be between Ellona and Alex & Sierra, but with Ellona gone and Alex & Sierra doing so well, I don't think anyone will stand a chance.

Alex & Sierra are killing it. They've been #1 on iTunes with Say Something last week and Gravity this week.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/B0nUwBBrJn8" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/B0nUwBBrJn8</a>

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/r1rl7ajXp6I" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/r1rl7ajXp6I</a>

I don't see Carlito challenging for the win even though somehow he made it into the finals over Restless Road... If Paulina wins, this season would be a disaster. :cmaslol

I think it's Alex & Sierra vs. Jeff for the win. Regardless of if Alex & Sierra win or not, they're probably going to be successful because I think Simon will sign them. :cmaslol Jeff got amazing comments this past week, so it'll be an interesting finale next week.

I've been following the season (but it seems too quick!) and I'm pretty impressed with the Final 6 (5 spot on, except for Carlito).

I think the judges are biased towards Carlito and he should have been gone pretty early in this competition but is saved again and again by Simon especially.

It's between Jeff and Alex and Sierra definitely, and I'm just so glad that Restless Road is gone. They are so mediocre... Alex and Sierra on the other hand is class act. I will buy their album definitely any day! :kisses

I actually think this is decent and Sierra and Jeff really shine in this performance.
