The interaction could not be more awkward. I think the daughter of 2Steel Girls is going for tough, but just looks dead in the eyes and nervous. It works on Gracia, though, who doesn't know what to do against that odd energy. She keeps doing it, too. Overall, it was not great, but I'd give it to Gracia.
Blake chooses Gracia as the winner, for confidence, performance level, and lack of creepy staring. Adam wanted to steal Gracia, but Blake is too smart to let her go. Then, when we already think the commercials are starting, Christina Milian pipes in with, "wow that was a really close battle." She has obviously not been watching the show.
Yes, yes, yes, I have been waiting for this final battle: Amanda Brown versus Trevin Hunte. I can't believe Cee Lo is pitting them against each other; they are both so phenomenal. Amanda shows her age by being really excited to meet Rob Thomas.
Cee Lo chose "Vision of Love" by Mariah Carey and even the rehearsals get me all flustered. It's so good. Cee Lo realizes after Amanda starts slaying it that he should not have put them together. Trevin is suffering from confidence issues, but should not be. Both of their families are as enthusiastic as these two are talented.
The performance is so good it gives me goosebumps. All four coaches stand for the performance, Adam stands on his chair. Blake notes that after the performance, Trevin was sexy. Christina wants in on this action, too. I liked how Adam called Cee Lo a stupid idiot for pitting them against each other, and Cee Lo admits it was a strategy with a bias towards Trevin that didn't pay off.
The judges wait for Cee Lo's decision, with their hands poised above their buttons for the steal. Cee Lo chooses Trevin because he wants to be a part of his journey. Amanda is so polished. I think that was the right decision. The coaches punch their buttons for Amanda, and Trevin cheers from the aisles. After many passionate pleas, and a compliment from Adam to Christina as a fading great, Amanda Brown joins Team Adam.
