So the top 3 Kree, Angie and Candice all battle it out tonight.


Based on song choices - Candice looks as though she will have a great night! Angie.....not so much!

Who will be the top 2? Kree and Angie? Angie and Candice? Or Kree and Candice?

Really? I'm watching it back at UK time now, it actually was better than i remembered, but it was so screechy and it, again, sounds the same as everything she did last week!

she lost it a bit at the end but the rest was lovely & yes, she sounds the same just as kree always sounds like kree, candice always sounds like candice etc, its what keeps the fans coming back for more otherwise theyd just buy now compilation albums!

But that's it though....Candice and Kree come back and do different things each week. Angie stays in the same range, the same arrangement, pretty much the same key each week.

Janelle did it too.

I try so hard to like Angie, cause i loved her after her hollywood performance, but since then she has just got far too boring! I want her sparkle back! haha!

i love kree's voice (probably my favourite out of them all) but shes always so lack-lustre, she makes songs boring and lately she seems to have lost even more motivation & become pitchy

WHAT! WHAT! WHAT!

How could you not think that 'Somewhere' was amazing by Candice?

Yes, ok, old fashioned, but come on! It was absolutely AMAZING!

What's your overall ranking of all the performances?

Mine would be:

1) Candice - Somewhere
2) Kree - Her 2nd performance
3) Candice - Next To Me
4) Candice - One
5) Angie - Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word
6) Kree - Dig For Two
7) Angie - Try
8) Kree - Perfect
9) Angie - Maybe

OK so I'm not even embarrassed to admit that I got up and applauded after Candice's Somewhere.

I hope Kree makes it through to next week, Angie is still very Disney for my liking however I think Kree has been well and truly thrown under the bus with the song choices. If she's gone its because of the dismal song choices, bar the judges choices.

Angie's Try by far the worst of the night though.

Candice wins the night (and the season after that final performance), Kree still my favorite despite the poor song choices but I'm not holding my breathe that she'll get through sadly.

I really hope its a Kree and Candice finale. I just think Angie is much more suited to musical theatre.

seriously ?

of the three shes the one that I thought has looked most relevant to todays music , her best performances have been when shes been singing up to date songs whereas Candice has shone on older style songs imo

Candice's standout song tonight was a musical theatre staple

Angie's standout song tonight was a modern pop song

my thoughts on tonight

jimmys songs :

thought kree was good with perfect

really didn't like Candice's version of one , thought her timing was all over the place most of the song

loved angie doing sorry seems to be the hardest word , gave me goosebumps


judges songs :

angie was good with try , her best performance of an up tempo song

loved Candice doing the emeli sande track , first time I have felt she did something that was commercial

kree again ok but nothing special


producers songs :

hated all three song choices

yes Candice was amazing vocally with that somewhere but was that really the time for them to give her a broadway song to sing ?

Obviously Candice will shine on older songs, because they are more complex to sing - something Angie couldn't do.

Everything Angie does sounds the same now - Love Came Down, Who You Are, Halo, Maybe, Sorry Seems To Be...., I Was Here, I Surrender etc. The only time she has sounded different was when she sang Shop Around, and that was crap. I was completely team Angie up until about week 2 when i got bored.

All the mainstream starts don't actually release songs that sound the same. Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady GaGa, Adele etc - they all release fresh sounds. Angie is incapable of making anything sound fresh from what we have seen whereas Kree and Candice - although they sing older songs - make them sound more modern than the ones Angie sings.

Candice has sung two very very modern songs the last 2 weeks - Next To Me and When I Was Your Man and both performances have been better than any of Angie's has been in recent weeks.

well we gonna differ in opinion

I would buy something the style angie sings whereas altho I appreciate Candice vocally I am not a fan of the songs she has been doing

still cant believe you would have kree in the final in front of angie , kree has been boring for the majority of the live shows and shown zero versatility but you say all angie's songs sound the same ?

Kree's songs don't sound the same though. If that was the case, i would still absolutely dislike her like i did at the start.

The only person i liked going into the live shows was Angie. I was 100% Angie.

Didn't care for Candice and Kree. At all. Candice caught my attention straight away with "I Who Have Nothing" (which she made sound very fresh and relevant). I only paid attention to Kree when it was announced she was top 3, and i didn't get it. Each week, for me, i feel as though she has shown herself to be more versatile, more capable, and more likeable than Angie.

I think the one thing that annoys me the most about Angie is that everyone makes out she is this great pianist, no, she isn't. When you actually look at what she is playing, its about 4 chords in a song. Her left hand spends more time waving about in the air than it does actually playing anything on the piano. People say "she plays the piano, she is better than the other girls, thats talent" well no. If you sat anyone down at a piano for 30 minutes you could get them to play what Angie plays.

Angie also has the most pitch problems out of the 3 left. Try was just....crap really. Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word started fine, then she hit possible the most out of tune note since Lazaro, and then just screamed into the microphone like she was in pain. How in ANY WAY is that good? I don't get it.

Kree has a better tone, a more dynamic voice and a voice that is able to tell a story better than Angie.

Angie belongs in Music Theatre - that's not a bad thing at all. It's actually fantastic.

I have no doubt in my mind that the top 2 will be Kree and Angie as Angie has some idiotic fans that though 'Shop Around' was the performance of the season and well, that says it all. Kree also has the sob story and the MASSIVE country vote which will get her through.

Aaah poor Kree such a sad situation If ever there has been a sob story on one of these shows, then this has got to be the saddest, I even cried. I am sure it will get her votes, so be it.. but I don't think it will be enough for her to get to the final.

I am sure Candie has it in the bag to win.

When you think of the weeks that the judges, Jimmy etc etc have been banging on about song choices and when it comes to them picking the songs, well I wasn't impressed with their choices. Candice was given a great classic that is emotional and can really show of anyone's vocal ability, so Canidice obviously stole the show.

I am sure all three will go on to big things, they are all good singers in their own right.
