Amanda sings “Someone Like You” by Adele
Judges’ comments: Blake: “I really enjoyed that. Adam was hard on his team with the Adele songs and I loved that you brought it out because you are a rocker. I can’t get enough of it”. Christina: “Another powerful and dynamic vocal. We are still waiting for you to tap into it and understand you as an individual artist”. Cee Lo: “I truly believe the reward is in the risk that you take and you are brave enough to take those risks”. Adam “I like to listen to everyone talk, I am hard on people who do Adele songs but this didn’t resemble the original in any way. It was a huge power ballad and we are hard on you because we except so much from you”.

It was great and theatrical.” Blake: “It is so awesome when you see the right connection being made. You have the talent to these big performances. So impressive.” Christina: “I think I enjoy that you are definitely a risk taker. You are not afraid to change it up.” Cee Lo “What a wonderful job. I’m just so very proud of your growth at an accelerated rate with such poise and confidence. You make me feel confident about my own instincts.” He added, “I love our partnership.

Cee Lo: “I’m a big fan of yours…You remind me of Bruce Dickerson, great rock vocalist”. Adam: “So, that’s what that song is supposed to sound like… just kidding. I’m a huge fan of yours and that was just great. The precision is inspiring”. Blake: “You performed that song the way I wish I always could and it was amazing. Adam was right, you proved yourself as the real deal and the real artist. You are a star”.

It didn’t really go anywhere but it was favorite performance from you so far, I like it”. Cee Lo: “It was such a cool set, these new arrangements sound really great and showcase the cool quality of your voice.” Adam “I love you! When you are going through a breakup, you want to make the person who did this to you feel dumb and you did that successfully. I love seeing an artist up there that is concerned with every aspect of the performance and I love the way you present yourself”.

This was not your best performance ..” Adam: “I am not gonna pick it apart. I want to applaud you from walking away from something you had [quarterback]…you have to have tunnel vision. I would have wanted to kick your butt if I were your dad..but you have a lot to be proud of.” Blake: “You have a star quality about you. It really worked for you.” Christina: “You killed it killed it killed it!”

We all love you.” Blake: “You’re an amazing singer and a really good dude. This song was in your wheelhouse. You’re the guy to beat.” Christina: “Wonderful job as usual. As usual, I don’t think you fully captured what that means because your vocal ability is a monster gift from God.” Cee Lo: “Man….I am very proud of you. What a wonderful performance. I am certain Whitney would be proud.”

I hate the Roxy..they’re paying for it now. You did a great job considering how explosive you were last week.” Blake: “You dominated again tonight, on your mom’s bday.
