Amelia has so much potential, she seems like the type who could be a real star on a full season and like just get better and better. Love her voice and that duet was awesome.

I love "Burning House," such a great song and Shannon sounds great on it. She's never going to be a star though, like I'll eat a whole closet full of shoes if she ever charts a song. She's just so hard to be interested in, even though she's so talented.

Lionel Ritchie always looks like he's doing long division in his head

That was iffy. "Push and pull" indeed.

I really don't think this song was the right fit for her. Lacking in subtlety and she didn't shine.

So odd that Toni Braxton agreed and then bailed. Did she see the ratings?

That was a cool duet but Marcio is too extra.

UNREAL duet between Jurnee and Lea Michele. Holy shit! 

Give Jurnee the crown already. God damn she is good. Her voice is good, and the emotional connection with the songs is always there. She's amazing!

I don't mind "Lucky" as a song but it's such an inferior Colbie duet to "Droplets," they should have done that one. It's so much more powerful and would show off a lot more of his voice. I don't care for him though so at the end of the day, this is just mediocre, especially following Jurnee.

Marcio simply can not perform a song without one of those affected growly-low phrases, delivered with a deliberately contorted face. And it's really not necessary when you have a voice like his. IDGI.

He reminds me of a far less OTT version of Jacob Lusk honestly.

I'm offended that they had Rachel Platten there and didn't give her 2 duets, especially after Toni backed out. Also "Fight Song" is so overplayed, Rachel has a newer album out with some fantastic songs. 

I didn't really care about Mara Justine before this, but she sounded really good on the song. I just adore Rachel and the duet was quite good. I was surprised they didn't have Jurnee go last, but that was a solid closer. 

Oops forgot about Effie. Well it would have been a solid closer.

I'm sour that we got robbed of an Effie and Jessie J duet. However that duet with Cam was incredible, they both sang their asses off.

I'm basically talking to myself, but ranking for the night would be as follows: 

1. Jurnee
2. Effie
3. Mara Justine
4. Maddie
5. Ada
6. Amelia 
7. Shannon 
8. Marcio

Mandisa sized gap 

9. Garrett
10. Ron
11. Caleb 
12. Alyssa 

The girls are definitely getting a raw deal. With the exception of Alyssa they were all far and away better than the men this week and especially tonight.

Effie getting eliminated is a fucking joke. Michelle being the Top 14 over her as an actual travesty.
