Both of Team Joel's battles tonight were excellent. Actually, I think his is my favourite team (with the possible exception of Prinnie who still comes across to me as entitled). Love Sarah and Laura, though. I think he's right in saying that Sarah could win this whole thing. At this stage, she'll be my pick to take it out.
Team Delta is not shaping up too badly, though I would have chosen Sarah Lloyd over Danni de Whatsherface. I can take or leave the fact her backing singer is on her team, but what can you do? If a guy is to take out the title, it will probably be from her team (the only other real chance I see is Lakyn, Team Joel).
And Team Keith, oh Team Keith. I think I disagreed with his decisions in the Battle Rounds the most. I would have easily kept Abbie, Jaz and Glenn over their respective opponents. I'm not really a raging fan of anyone left on his team. A whole bunch of 'meh' combined with people who are supposedly better than other people I actually liked.
If I'm right, the next couple of weeks have two entire teams sing. The audience votes a bottom 3 per team and the coach picks one of them to go through. Rinse, repeat to turf two more from each team to get the top eight (two per team). Weird shit involving mathematics happens to pick the top contestant out of each team (but basically boils down to -- the coach can pick a contestant to go through or defer the decision to the audience vote). Only then at top four stage do the teams go against one another to pick the winner.
So on that note, anyone care to go out on a limb and pick a Top Four? My tips:
Team Delta - Ben
Team Joel - Sarah
Team Seal - Karise
Team Keith - Adam
Since this is Shrieki we are talking about here, it begs the question - who else was in the pool of talent?
Laura Gissara from Idol S3, Karl Kennedy and the lady who sings on the Budget ads (Buuu-jay, buuu-jay, "It's Budget, love").
BWAH! Tea, meet keyboard.
