Sarah's working with Babyface, and she's so cute and agreeable that I'm charmed by her. She's got a strong voice, a little bit of a yodel and an ability not to make a mean comment on Cee Lo's jammies. Juliet shows up to work with Ne-Yo and it seems like she's forgotten her pants, but remembered a giant fur collar. It's... a look. Ne-Yo tells her to restrain herself and not scream the entire thing. Thank you, Ne-Yo. My eardrums appreciate it. For some reason we get to see their final rehearsal, and Cee Lo hands out some confidence boosting comments to Sarah and Juliet is hella jealous that Cee Lo sees the beauty in a quiet and folky voice.
What the fuck is Juliet wearing? She's got on a leather short-shorts, a suede tie-dyed bra, enormous leather hooker boots and a belt around her head. So many animals were killed in the making of this really tacky outfit. Sarah is in a more refined suit and sneakers, and dances like Ellen DeGeneres. Obviously I love Sarah here, Juliet does have a powerful voice and that's undeniable, I just don't think I want to see her all season. Adam picks Juliet, Blake likes Sarah's unique harmonies and ability to show range that isn't just screaming. Christina doesn't think this song did Sarah's voice justice (she didn't get to pick it, Xtina), and goes with Juliet. Cee Lo would like to have them both (and I don't even think he means that in a dirty way entirely... for a change), and makes his constipated face, before deciding on Juliet. Sarah humbly thanks Cee Lo, and is glad that she didn't get judged on the way she looks. Juliet is really grateful, which makes me hate her a little bit less. Just a little, though.
Adam gleefully pits Kim Yarbrough (the 50-year-old with the gigantic powerhouse Chaka Khan-esque voice) and Whitney Myer (who normally sings with her family) together and assigns them Mary J's "No More Drama." Let the diva off commence. Kim says she's already bought the coffee mug from the places Whitney is going. Kim, did you happen to pick me up a tacky snowglobe along the way? Whitney is visibly concerned, but given that Adam told her in the blind auditions she could win the whole thing, she should have some more confidence. Though if she picked Adam out of all four of the judges who spun around, and gets kicked off because of the way this deck was stacked, that would suck for her.
