I hate that song choice, and as much as I like Amanda, I have to admit I noticed some pitch issues that make it even worse.

I don't like her voice... not even before this song...she lacks something...

She just needed to make her high notes more fuller towards the end. She was a bit flat , that's a very tough song. I like that she's doing the rock-soul thing.

Did Adam choose that crappy song or did she? I think she did. 

Definitely not her best and I agree with Christina's feedback. She needs to find her niche and stick to it. Yeah, she can be switch it up and do rock every now and then but is her voice really suited for that genre? Ionno. Seems too forced.

I'd also like to hear her sing a softer, more laid back ballet without all the extra runs and screams. She's still my favorite though.

the bolded

Christina is a mothaf*ckin HATER

Her "critique" from this week towards Amanda is completely contradictory to the statements she gave her last week!

Paraphrasing
Christina last week: 'Kudos to you for not being afraid to step out of the box and do what you want'
Christina this week: 'I don't get what your style is... you need to pick a lane and stay in it' ConfusedConfusedConfused

If Christina was paying attention she would have noticed that Amanda has only PICKED Pop/Rock and Indie songs to sing

THE JUDGES are the ones who assume she's an "R&B singer"
It was Cee Lo who picked her to sing "Vision of Love" with Trevin

This song (Spectrum) is more in her lane in terms genre but it the song sucks serious ass Stern Smile

In a former life? Ouch

I did theater and dance when I was little but nothing serious. I should've been in the arts tho but my mother could never afford it and she was too strict to let me do gymnastics Disapprove

@Alias, Christina DID say something to that effect last week didn't she? Hmmmm

And tbh, I noticed her facial expression this week and last week was a bit sour/uncomfortable like it pained her to give Amanda any compliments but she had no other choice. I kinda shrugged it off but I could definitely sense that she wanted to pick apart Amanda's performance LAST week but knew people would call her out on it.

You are soooo right, Alias. Christina is a certified HATER! I'm sure she was glad she finally had something negative to say this week. smhOuch

Yep, yep! This is the first season I've watched but the girls on her team this season aren't that great AT ALL.

 I think she dropped some little chic for that Middle eastern girl with the funny voice that the country dude picked up. To me she was one of the best (the girl she dropped)  Damn Christina. I thought I liked her. I got my eye on her from now on.

Her voice sounded completely off/pitchy. I don't mind the song itself. She just needs some real coaching bcuz her voice has potential.


Posted By: Alias_Avi
Date Posted: Nov 13 2012 at 4:13pm
She was sick this week (explains the nasally pitch sound)

She normally has perfect pitch

She was back up for both Adele and Alicia Keys.. girl can sing her ass off (she's already trained and seasoned performer)

Me too, Alias. I saw her when no one else but Ceelo turned around for her. 

I do a little sanging myself and though I'm not claiming to be on Whitney's level, I recognize talent. I can tell when a person has control over their voices, when their voices are authentic and they're not leaning too much on runs and their "head" voice.

Amanda's the real deal.

That sounded like a different person lol I was just going off of that performance(giving an unbiased opinion bcuz I don't know her). She may just be one of those people that are really good in one genre and suck in others? A lot of dancers are like that too. She should train in other styles/genres. Or maybe a combination of the pressure/nerves/sickness got to her. There's a different level of confidence u need as a solo artist and the pressure is greater.

Christina picks teams based off who she likes, is attractive, and worships her, but wonders why she hasn't won or never even had a strong contender.

Still like Christina's voice tho.

I liked Amanda's rock n roll performance here, but I hated that Adam put her against Michelle cuz Michelle could saaaaaaang. I wasn't surprised tho.

I think this is more of it

because her performance to "Dream On" last week blatantly separated her from the rest of the contestants b/c it was so good... she even made it to #14 on iTunes when everyone else was #58, #66, etc,.

She had alooooot of pressure to perform well last night and it was so sad after she finished... she looked like she wanted to cry when the judges were giving her critiques Ouch

Words cannot express how much I love Amanda!Embarrassed

However, when I heard this performance a couple nights ago I cringed. I'm going to pretend like it never happened. Confused I knew Amanda was gold the minute she stepped on the scene...her talent never 'surprised' me. I think she really has more to show as well...but I agree with the person who said it's great that she can do rock, but is that her best fit?

She needs to bring it back home with some R&B next week.

Amanda is currently the number 2 bish in the game after Queen Bey for me Heart

She looked so sad at the results show on Wednesday. Hopefully, she uses it as motivation to pick a better song next week and blow all her competition outta the water AGAIN.

I wanted Melanie Martinez to go home sooooo bad. Better luck next week.

Another solid performance last night. And Christina was hating yet AGAINSleepy She was the ONLY judge to critique ANY of the performers. Sad and transparent as sh*t.

I don't have a problem with the critique that she 'needs more consistency' because I think she does

However, Christina is insincere and jealous and bitterness seeps through her pores. It always has


As for Amanda and Adam, Im gonna need for Adam to get it together. He is starting to disappoint me in his lack of mentorship. At this point in the game, I feel like the mentors shouldn't be picking the music for the contestants. They need to do that themselves

It is very clear to me that Amanda needs to go back to Rock (I don't understand why they don't see that). Clearly, that's where she shines the most. She was very good last night but that song didn't do as much for her as Dream On did for her or what Cassadee's performance last night did for Cassadee because those songs were known and there is sentimental value in contestants singing songs the audience already knows




Posted By: noneyons
Date Posted: Nov 20 2012 at 2:13pm
Did you see Christina look down at her nails like she was bored and disinterested after making her critique? WTF is wrong with that trick? Can't stand jealous insecure women!

I agree that Adam needs to get it together with the song choices but I read that the person who's song Amanda sang was proud of Amanda's performance (probably because it'll put the song on the map), so the choice could be a good thing. I dunno. I would like her to sing a more popular, contemporary song though. 

You thought Cassidee did good? I thought she sucked monkey balls. 

Trevin disappointed me. And I was shocked by Dez's performance. I actually thought he did the best last night. Didn't think he had it in him. 

Lawd, what about the gay dude singing Crazy in Love. That was funny as sh*t!

Can you believe she's f*cking #1 on iTunes right now! That's right, right above Gangnam Style

Cody is a star though. Him, of course Amanda, Melanie (I don't know why I love that little girl so much) and Dez. All of them can make it to the major leagues.  

I don't know where Trevin will fit in. Guess he'll have to go take Rubin Studder's place and go the Luther Vandross route b/c the uptempo songs just isn't his forte.

She's adorbs and her studio recordings are BANANAS

I'm not a fan of Dez but there's no denying the fact that the little white girls will be throwing their panties at that boy. He's charming and pretty with a decent voice. He has a lot of potential too. He gets better every week. 

Yay! I'm not the only one who loves Melanie!
