I really hate those results show group numbers. They’re hectic, noisy, and usually lip-synched. So when they started breaking up the contestants into duets and quartets, it seemed like there was at least one part of the results show that was headed in the right direction.
And then they took a step back. Way back.
Sure they had a quartet and then a trio. But the point wasn’t to split the singers into smaller groups — the point was to hear each singer outside of the results show. But by having, say, Haley and Lauren sing in unison for the entire song (as they did with the guys), the viewers got absolutely nothing out of the performance. And with all the choreography and whatnot, they were probably lip-synching anyway. So now we’re back to square one. It was absolutely infuriating that they botched this so badly.
I usually have to throw out tons of ideas for the blog because I just don’t have enough time to work it out. One of the things I tossed for lack of time was a Seven Deadly Sins theme. The list turned out this way:
Lust – Haley
Gluttony – Lauren
Greed – James
Sloth – Scotty
Wrath – Casey
Envy – Stefano
Pride – Jacob
James as Greed was a bit sketchy, but the other fit to a “T”. But in the end, it was too involved to get into.
Stefano leaving was a zero shock, zero suspense conclusion. Plus, I struggled to get even 30 words to write about him. So good riddance to this one trick pony.
And Jacob got a facial during the week.
I’m sure it’s not the first facial he’s ever received!
He does work in a day spa after all. *Ahem*
Jacob’s customary white wife beater gave him quite the set of twin peaks.
