I'm sooooooooo glad that Juliana and Jason are gone. Their voices were by far my least favorite. Yes.
Alli/Chad - Eh.
Austin/Laura - Laura is just out and out my favorite now. I love her voice and think she fits Broadway best, and Austin finally did good for me tonight. And these two? Smokin'! They had chemistry and both sold it beautifully.
Ashley/Max - Max was doing his damndest, but Ashley ... just no, all around. And NO romantic chemsitry. Of course, it doesn't help that Justin Guarini and Kelly Clarkson performed this on the AI finale and they had wonderful chemistry. Again about Max ... he just really sells it, he has a great, great comfort zone on the stage.
Derek/Kate - Wow, Derek sounds terrible. Oy, they sound awful together. Eh, the big notes together were better, but nope, they both went flat. Eh about the chemistry.
Kevin/Kathleen - No connection. Kevin has a good voice, but he's so stiff. Kathleen's voice just grates now.
** Fave couple: Austin/Laura
** Fave guy: Max, then Austin (I know!)
** Fave girl: Laura, no one else is close in my opinion
Seriously, WHAT is the hard-on for Ashley? Her voice is not that good. Ah well.
