Jermaine, Chris and Tony are joining Hall & Oates to do "Rich Girl." Yeah, this is such a bad idea on paper. Well, the boys are relegated to glorified backup singers. So it sounds like it always does. Adam's lovin' it.
We're going to find out who wins... in a little over an hour. WHY? Can't we at least start making some cuts now? Liven this shit up? We get another clip package of the judges being goofy during their rehearsal process. Blake's a goofball. Cee Lo is a ladies man. Christina is a diva. Adam has a lot of heart. Riveting stuff.
Now there are four people that none of the finalists wanted, tossed together to fill up time. Naia Kete, Cheesa, Kim Yarbrough and Sera Hill are doing "Superstition." Cheesa actually looks awake. That's refreshing. It's very wedding band, and I completely forgot that this Sera girl existed. Wait, is everyone coming back? Is there some creepily awesome Tony Vincent in my future? That might keep me away from the cookies.
Ooh, a Parks & Rec bit. Ron Swanson gets a spinning chair. Chris Pratt gets to be goofy with Cee Lo. Leslie can't decide between Blake and Adam. Well, now I need to watch this 18 more times. And then Carson says, "Will Leslie Knope get elected? I Knope so." And it ruins everything good about it.
Juliet has picked Erin Willet, RaeLynn and Jamar Rogers (someone's mister popular tonight). They are doing "A Little Help From My Friends." I don't think I could have predicted how much RaeLynn's grating drawl and Juliet's nasal whine would have sucked when paired together. Someone smartly bookended them with Jamar and Erin, who can really hit the required notes. Juliet does get some big power notes towards the end, but I don't think hitting some gravelly vocals in the last 30 seconds of a song really makes her a fantastic performer. Ooh, look, balloons.
Christina Milian. Nope. I'm done with her. Do I need to hashtag it? #QuitIt
Now a clip package on Purrfect the cat. OK. Well, I can get behind watching a minute of cute fuzzy kitty. Adam thinks the cat is on drugs. Blake hates the cat, as it has pooped in his seat.
