I'm kind of shocked and galled that it's taken til top 8 for someone to play an instrument on the live shows. 

Also, I don't know how much longer Emblem3 can keep saying "Next week, next week, you don't even KNOW" re: instruments before people get tired of waiting and send them to the bottom 2 with the hope that their Save Me song involved a guitar or three.

For the record ---Lady Marmalade is about Old New Orleans---NOT Moulin Rouge.  They should be singing the original lyric since the song was inspired by New Orleans.  They also cleaned up the French chorus.  Yuck.

I thought they were going to stay fully clothed. LOLS!!!!!!!!!!!!! But this song choice was wrong! OH well..........YES PLAY SOME freaking instruments!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, this is just PRICELESS. Really, Simon? REALLY? This song?

I'm getting Phillip Lomax flashbacks.

Hush my bitches are on.....I know I'm the only one on the blog that likes them. :)

I'd be embarrassed for Britney, but then I see Khloe looking like a post-op transsexual, and I lose focus...

It's didn't even sound like Britney in the beginning of the video. It sounded more like Madonna's fake British accent.  lols....:)

Her voice isn't all that bad until she tries to do those runs. It's like me, except without the "voice isn't all that bad" part. 

I do love that her attitude is back somewhat. It's clear her more demure persona wasn't working for America, so I'd rather see her go back to being the CeCe of old. Too often, contestants try to play nice to keep on America's good side, and I understand why, but sometimes I just like it when the fire comes out.

The only reason why CeCe is still in the competition is because Simon doesn't want her to go. She would of gone a long time ago.

I can't believe CeCe has made it this deep into the competition without dying her hair back.

She makes my heart flutter as a brunette, but maybe that's just my inveterate weakness for brunettes (and redheads...or those "kissed by fire", to borrow Game of Thrones parlance). 

And yes, I know exactly what this says about my oft-unfortunate taste in women.

CeCe got attitude tonight. lols.... "I gave 110 % and you GUYS still put me in the bottom." Are you kidding me CeCe? Your performance last week was horrible!

Streaming live TV blows! 3 minutes on and 15 minutes off air.  Gah!

Tate is on so maybe I will go feed my stray kitty outside.  Be back..

If I never hear Rolling in the Deep again, it'll be too f****** soon.

Sometimes the judges are just too awkward, a good host would step in when Simon is dragging on and on with his jokes about carly being an alien. Anywho, it's really just Carly vs Tate at this point

I love Carly but she is tooooooooooooo young to sing this song.  Vocally she was still on point for most of the song. I prefer Haley's version. OH well.......wrong song choice.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO NOT ADELE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh man I want to pull my hair out when I hear the tone deaf Paige or Cece. What a couple of losers.

Ok I'm going to be positive. This is Paige's best vocal performance of the WHOLE season!

This is getting to American Idol levels of irrelevant song choices, especially with a #1s theme. 

I'd be embarrassed if I were the producers at failing to get decent songs cleared.

Because you can remix Rick Astley all you want, but at the end of the day, it's still Rick Astley.

@NickRoman1 The funny thing is if they get eliminated before they play an instrument would suck. They need to just do it. Why can't they play an instrument every week. They would be number 1 if they did that in the beginning. Think about it, 3 WGWGs!   It's a win win win situation.

@waynocoaster They cleaned up the chorus, yet they premiered a video in which the last line is "It's Britney, bitch."

@Mikhail XO Reminded me of Mariah's big comeback a few months ago.  Britney Spears made a guest vocal on her own video.

@Mikhail XO At first I thought they were trying to hold back their criticism, so that they could lull her fanbase into thinking she's safe. Then Simon just rips into her with that incredibly tortured analogy (seriously, he waterboarded the s*** out of that thing). So expect her to place 4th or something.

@ArchieSue I like Tate as a person, and he actually has a very nice voice, but for me, his picture might as well be attached to the Wikipedia article on bathroom breaks.

@NickRoman1 somehow i don't believe her performance when she sings these intense love songs.  really? she's thirteen.  Might as well sing a Courtney Love song while you're at it.

@Mikhail XO Demi probably didn't pick this song. She is too young to know this jam. It's the producers picking the shit. I really thought Paige was going to do something current.

@NickRoman1 I didn't know that was such an issue. Here in Germany, record labels are pushing for their artists to be covered in casting shows because it guarantees them at least a top 20 chart entry. When Emeli Sandé was sung last week, her song got to #7.

@ArchieSue @NickRoman1 You'd think Simon, whose last three seasons on Idol, and last season on The X Factor UK involved WGWGs winning, would realize this. But apparently not.

@Mikhail XO @MyTryst Whatever, she IS great and adorable, not to mention the fact she is frickin' 13.  Her potential is limitless.  Like I said Carly FTW...

@Mikhail XO @ArchieSue Simon /producers probably wanted her to sing  that song to knock her off the number #1 spot this week. Bitches! lols

Damn your talented.........I knew a Vietnamese guy that spoke fluent German. He was born in Germany.  I loved his accent.  All I speak is Cantonese, Vietnamese, English and a little Spanish. lols...
