Some of them are middle aged, not that cute, etc. That older bald lady will be on next week it looks like lol.

The battles now are interesting. I loved the first one with Frenchie and the other girl doing Single Ladies.

I found the group doing "Leather and Lace" hilariously unfair.

For one thing, the woman sounded JUST like Stevie and two, I don't even think Don Henley sings that song well. It was kind of obvious who was gonna win.

Clearly I'm going to have to go back and watch the first two episodes so I can understand why on earth a duo was allowed to compete.

Thanks to this episode, I'm actually excited about this show for real. I have a dog in this fight, and his name is Javier.

Haha yes Javier is awesome.

The battles are kind of weird, it just seems messed up to put two really good singers against each other and have to eliminate one of them. Also cant believe the old bald lady made it through.

She nailed Daltry on that song, she deserved to go through, but I think they lost out on the guy there.

It certainly adds an air of unease to the show, never knowing if you're going to accidentally have to part with one of the best contestants on the show (like what happened last week). I don't know if they'll keep this format or not, but it's an interesting new twist.

My friend got me to watch, I'd only heard the title and thought oh brother another pop contest, but finding out the concept and the people involved I got on board, now I'm caught up and I'm hooked. I was kind of bummed this week that they really trimmed down the amount of time they showed with the coaches and singers working on technical preparation verus the first battle round, as a songwriter I really enjoyed seeing that. The first week every person I wanted to win won, this week I was less involved with most, but really don't see what everyone else digs about Makia, he's loud and steals your attention, so what.

The battle format is just downright bizarre, but I'm enjoying it, it's been funny to see the different approaches the groups have been taking. The first were really out to get each other, whereas the best ones were the performances where they were really working together and in the end that works out for the best because you can both come away looking good and use that attention for your career even if you don't move on. Just look at Nicki & Vicki, they complimented each other and both gave it their all and you could tell CeeLo still wanted to work with Nicki.

This Castro chick and her chubby-faced opponent are both pitchy, dawg. Can't they both be eliminated? Bad matchup, Christina.

Seriously she should've knocked both of them out against stronger opponents.

Oh Lord, what is this coffee house You Can't Hurry Love?

EDIT: Oh, good, they sped it up later. It's still a terrible version: are there instruments besides piano there? Also, Serabee's performance was hideous. The singers so far have been leagues ahead of tonight's. Javier could snore any of these people off the stage.

I don't understand this show. This Dia girl was already ON a major label at some point:

He doesn't even KNOW the song. He sang "I'm Yours" for crying out loud. He has the look of the Hipster, but he doesn't follow through on the actions

Blackstone hasn't said a damn thing about Creep yet. Wonder why.

Pitchy maybe, but the first duo both have quite a set of pipes that can be improved, neither has been trained for long. They totally didn't mention that Castro was the girl from Jersey Girl in the auditions.

Again, the duos that really compliment each and work together come out looking the best, the loser might not move on but they get positive exposure. I thought it was gonna be a train wreck at first, but the two that did Creep worked so well together they should form a band . I dug the girl's voice whereas Devon's audition was terrible so I was kind of mad he was even there, but he did own the choruses. I'm really happy for Dia as well, she's adorable and subtle instead of overconfident.
