Christina is wearing what amounts to a glittery bathing suit, singing something vaguely country sounding for half a second. During which point she has half naked men gyrate around Blake for some reason, and there's cowboy hats. Once that out-of-nowhere bizarreness ends, she gets down to business singing "Fighter." She has a vest, but shuns it quickly because it is just too much clothing to be wearing. Her team is at various points around the studio before joining her on stage. It's hard to find them with all the dancers and the gospel choir. The stage is quite cluttered by the end. Good think that Xtina has on her sparkly red bottoms so I that can find her. She's hopping up and down so much, it makes me concerned that she's going to fall right out of this corseted top. She doesn't. Much to the male audience members' dismay, I'm guessing.
Jordis is backstage in a different outfit talking to Christina Milian, and she's got her dad with her and he's more than a little enthusiastic. He busts out some James Brown. She teases that Justin Bieber video that they will be debuting tomorrow. (So this is where you can see videos nowadways? Good to know.) Carson with a straight face says that he can't wait. Has someone sucked all emotions out of him? Is he the male version of the Julie Chenbot, but with a less adventurous/terrible fashion sense?
Ashley de la Rosa is shy, but according to Christina is proving herself to people. Gee, she was in the bottom three. Do you really think she's proving herself? America clearly doesn't like her. She's doing Jewel's "Foolish Games," but she's doing it as if she were Amy from Evanescence. She also still gets awestruck by Christina being her coach, which is a little bit adorable, if sycophantic, but it could be good strategy in a week that the coaches are in charge.
