After last week with the boys, this week's episodes focus on the ladies in Hollywood. Apparently, there were many more girls sent to hollywood than boys–lets hope that is indicative of the winner? Please teenage girl supervoters?
During day one, the large group was cut down to 73 girls in groups. Since we didn't really see a whole lot of singing, I will cut to the goodness of the group performances.
The Swagettes, including Kamaria Ousley, Melinda Ademi, Candace Glover, and Denise Jackson sang Hit Em Up Style…Candace is just amazing – seriously I have no idea how she got cut last year. In this group, Melinda was the weak link, but overall it wasn't bad and their harmonies were fantastic. They all made it through to the next round.
Raising Cane sang Sin Wagon, and it was Corny, Hokey, and Cheesy with a side of cowboy boots. Keith was just laughing because I don't think he knew what to think about the whole thing…despite this, they all managed to make it through (that seemed like four easy cuts to make right there.)
Almost Famous including Savannah, Lizz, Daysia, and J'Leigh sang a hot mess of a performance of Somebody I Used To Know. There was a tad bit of drama there and fortunately only one of them made it through.
The Dramatics led by Cristabel and her crew somehow managed to all make it through. Cristabel, though, is awesome and girl better make it to the live shows, because I anticipate she'll do great!
Urban Hue, including Seretha, Kiara, and Tenna sang American Boy. Although I use the word “sang” loosely. Unfortunately, Seretha goes home after a hot mess of a performance.
Who Snaps, including Zoanette sang Knock On Wood, and was a hot mess, but in an entertaining sort of way. Next up, Liz and her missing group sand Gotye and was also a hot mess. After that, the group For You also murdered Gotye. Poor Gotye!
The Dolly Chicks including Brittnee Kellogg, Kree Harrison, Brandy Neely, and Haley Davis, sang Sin Wagon. The performance wasn't as messy as other ones, but not great either. All of them made it except for a classy Brandy Neely, who I am guessing will be back next year.
The Misfits, including Kez Ban, Brianna Steer, Angela Miller, and Janelle Arthur sang Be My Baby. I don't know if it was the best harmonized performance, but it was very entertaining. Kez is a bit of a loose cannon and her voice wasn't at 100%, so I am curious to see how she'll do tomorrow. All the girls made it through to the next round, and previews hinted that Angela will have a breakout performance tomorrow! Bring on the memorable performances!
So having watched all of the group performances, there were no real stand-outs like in previous years, which saddens me. You know I always love a great notable group performance (Kimberley and Frenchie, baby!) We'll see how the final performances go tomorrow.
Did you see any standouts? Were you traumatized by the trainwrecks? Let me know in the comments!
