I have just watched the show (US TIME) and someone (not going to say who, but will in the spoiler tags for anyone that doesn't know yet) just took it to the next level, and gave the best performance i have ever ever ever seen on any talent show ever.

Anyway, let's start the discussion!

Yeah, I just watched it (the last song 5 times!) and I had to come here to see if anyone elses had commented. It seems like it's only once in a blue moon these shows get some talent that's that outstanding. I was impressed with her up till now, but she blew me away with her second performance

Candice has the best vocal of all the contestants. I haven't seen it yet but she's always in my top three

As has been said on other forums unless Lazaro has the fewest votes this is the week the save will be used

Nope. If Janelle has fewest, the save wont be used.

Is there definitely a double elimination after the save is used? If Janelle is bottom of the vote (which I think she will be) maybe they will use it? Purely to get rid of Lazaro in a double elimination the week after?

I never usually like the performances where the judges always seriously rave over them. But this year with Candice was so completely different. Her performance was outstanding. And at the right time. Amber and Angie were overtaking her in my favorites, but the performance put right back on top.

Tamyra Gray

Season 3
Fantasia
LaToya London
Jennifer Hudson

Season 4
Carrie Underwood
Vonzell Solomon

Season 5
Katharine McPhee
Chris Daughtry

Season 6
Jordin Sparks
Melinda Doolittle
Lakisha Jones
Blake Lewis

Season 7
David Cook
Syesha Merado
Carly Smithson

Season 8
Adam Lambert
Allison Iraheta

Season 9
Lee Dewyze
Crystal Bowersox
Siobhan Magnus

Season 10
Lauren Alaina
Haley Reinhart
Pia Toscano
Casey Abrahams
James Durbin

Season 11
Phillip Phillips
Jessica Sanchez
Joshua Ledet
Elise Testone
Skylar Laine

And I could probably think up some more!

Skylar, Elise, Phillip, James, Pia, Casey, Lauren, Siobhan, Lee, Syesha, Carly, David, Malinda, Blake, Lakisha, Chris, Katherine, Vonzell, LaToya and Tamyra shouldn't be on that list....i don't know if you're joking or not?

It's all down to personal opinion though, and my opinion is definitely that Candice is a much better singer than anyone this season, and a much better singer than 99% of the people that have been on the show before.

Thought Amber was better than the other female, name forgotten now, but she had no soft tones. Amber just let it flow.

Amber 9/10
1st female.....6/10

We're back and it's UK Pace btw.

Meant to add that 1st female is the one I call smiling teeth

Lazaro sings but don't think he's thinking of the song as he looked about him. Thought I heard a duff note too, but he's a nice guy.

Think Close To You is too slow for him....6/10

Sorry to sound harsh Lazarro should have gone in the first week. I know he has a moving back story but he's a mediocre singer at best.

His real problem is unsuitable songs, when he ought to stay with an oompy swing number, which give an edge to his vocals.

Back to a rodeo lover....

Oh dear Lord, don't like the sleepiness of that song start from Kree, and glad she upped the score. Mind you don't think the song does much for her.

6/10

Mariah speaks again, and seems she liked Kree's performance.
Keith overdoing it a tad, re Kree being emotional in the song.

Country? Never, that wasn't country!

Randy gets exicted re Kree....hmmmm


Janelle sings to keith. She shows more oomp with this love song, and it's not too bad.

7/10

Candice.........has a sweet voice when needed for the song, and she's the best tonight imo, as she raised my spirits.

10/10
