After those helpful hints, it is time to compete. Carson's corpse wracks up another two minutes on camera (it's going to be the first dead person to get a SAG card!) introducing the girls. Serabee is doing Stevie Nicks in a fedora sort of look, while Dia looks charming in a white lace A-line dress and red shoes. Hey, you know what? The girls have really different singing styles. They are so divergent that they probably shouldn't be on the stage together because it sounds terrible, contrived, and like a middle school talent show lipsync act after the sixth graders got into the peach schnapps.
As the song ends, the coaches scratch their collective heads. It just sounded so darn weird that no one quite knows what to say. Adam shrugs and says, "Serabee?" Like it's a question with no right answer. Cee Lo still loves Dia and Christina stands resolute in her desire to have no opinion because it sounded like crap. I respect that. Blake Shelton chooses Dia, but tweets: "Had to go with my gut. This is a tough position to be in." Which either refers to the position of choosing the lesser of two evils, or to eating two chimichangas from a 7-11 and having them sitting in his gut while he tries to listen to this duet. Either way, sucks to be you, Blake. Dia looks stunned that she keeps moving on in the competition. Her voice is... odd. It's good, but hard to categorize. It's hard to tell if she is trying at all. I guess if her talent is that effortless then she should continue on in the competition. Anyway, what do I know? I like J. Mascis and he sounds like a goat who gargled with broken gin bottles.
Next is Team Adam. He is pairing Rebecca (the girl who murdered a Nirvana song during the auditions) against Devon (the Doogie Howser lookalike) to sing Radiohead's "Creep." Um...what? Adam thought the song was dark and interesting and the opposite of dark is Devon and Rebecca. Way to set up your team for success! Also, THIS IS A REALLY WEIRD SONG TO CHOOSE. Adding to the challenge, Devon has apparently never heard the song before... and I don't think they even played it for him before making him sing it on national television. Adam just helpfully told him to "get in touch with his inner freak." Clearly Rebecca has no qualms about destroying iconic songs from the college music scene, so she'll do fine, but poor Devon. Although, he is doing college wrong if he hasn't ever heard Radiohead. He looks like he's going to need to mainline some antacids to get through this. Carson at least correctly describes Devon as a "pre-med" student, which is FAR more accurate than what they called him during the auditions, which was a medical student and was also wrong.
