But before we get to see her sing, we have to sit through Erick Macek, who is doing this for his parents who came here from Czechoslovakia. He wants to buy his mom a house. He croons "Free Fallin'," with a bit of a country twang to it. Blake looks like he's going to turn, but doesn't. Nor does anyone else. Blake says that he liked him, but was worried that he didn't have the high energy vocal to cope with the forthcoming battle rounds.
And now we're back to Ms. Sometimes. She's doing "Apologize." She's got a very deep singer/songwriter voice, that kind that is so popular right now. So it's not a surprise that all four judges turn around. Christina likes her voice, Blake says she reminds him of Xenia from last season, Cee Lo hands out a general compliment, Adam babbles like an excited little puppy. Christina interrupts them, and Cee Lo would like the two of them to get a room, so much so that he even offers up his place. What the hell does his place look like? All pleather and rhinestones with about 1,000 cats all over? Blake's Xenia comment must have wowed her, particularly with the info that Xenia has a record deal, and she goes with him.
Blake only needs four more artists, and he sits around playing with his fingers to demonstrate electricity. Don't make me hate you, Blake. You are often the voice of reason....
But I can't care about that because Tony Vincent is on this show. Excuse me while I turn into a Broadway squealing fangirl over here for a little while. I saw him as Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar a decade ago and he was absolutely amazing. I'm not going to embarrass myself further by admitting as to how many times I went back to see him do that performance, so let's just leave it at that. And let's not even talk about how many times I saw him in Rent... I mean, I saw that show like once a week during that time period, and it wasn't just for him. JCS on the other hand... Anyway, now that I've caught my breath, I can recap again and I'll be objective... ish. He looks still attractive and has his head shaved, and he talks about doing We Will Rock You and American Idiot. He actually has a cute little pregnant wife, who he met doing We Will Rock You. He picked this show because he likes that it has vocal integrity, and he'd like to do something pop-rock instead of Broadway.
