BK didn’t think the song accentuated that their look or energy. Ms. Naomi said the song choice didn’t do it for her either. As for Scott, he’d said all along they sing like they’ve been doing it for five years. He loved what they were doing and he would “make sure they make it to the next round.” With only his one yes vote, they would have to wait.
Last up was JB Rocket (Jonathan Cox and Brandon Green) to sing Diamond Rio’s “Meet In The Middle". BK’s hip to the fact that their looks will draw in the ladies “from eight to eighty.” The important thing would be for these two to find their unique voice during the competition. Their goal was to show how much they’ve progressed and to “blow everyone out of the water.” They were dressed casually and rocked their look. I thought they sounded great together. No chills, but great anyway. They were worked towards relating to each other and to the audience.
Scott loved their musical style. As he put it “You pick out something cool and you come up with a great, different, arrangement. I’m just diggin’ it. I’m a yes.” BK felt something was off but he wasn’t sure what. Ms. Naomi also gave them her yes. But as Lance pointed out, it’s not the unanimous three required so they had to wait.
Everyone had sung and the camera scanned the four duos left standing onstage. I felt there was only one choice as to who should be asked to leave. Steel Magnolia and O’Shea had gotten the go ahead for next week, so it was between Matt & Keeira, The Stellas, Ryan & Avalon, and JB Rocket as to who would leave. Keeira wasn't looking too happy. And with good reason. She and Matt were let go. In closing, Scott echoed something Matt said earlier. They are both lead singers. Singing with a partner as a duet is not for either one of them.
Like last week, I’m not ready to pick a winner yet but O’Shea, Steel Magnolia and The Stellas all caught my eye from the beginning and have improved each week. But I’m not going to discount JB Rocket and Ryan & Avalon just yet. I should have a clearer view after next week's show.
Lance closed as he said next week Wynonna would stop by to help Ms. Naomi work with the final five duos. He asked, “Are you sure about that, Naomi?” Her response? “It’s gonna be a combination of Family Feud, Survivor, and America’s Dumbest Criminals. Plan your life around it.” You couldn’t keep me away. In the meantime, let me know what you think. Was your favorite kept or let go? Talk to me. And I’ll see ya next week.
