That thing I said last week, about how the live finale was as close to a free-for-all as the show gets? I take that back.
As this episode is as close to a free-for-all as the show gets, I'm not going to go nuts with analyzing arranging and performance choices this time around. Not very nuts, anyway.
If you've ever watched a talent competition on TV and thought "I really wish they'd all just go for broke and leave everything they have on the stage," this is the half-episode for you.
Greatest episode ever? Arguably. Most heartbreaking elimination ever? Oh yeah. But I'm getting ahead of myself.
Classic R&B time, which I'm guessing means lots of shiny suits and up-dos. If only North Shore were here for this one. Man, I still miss 'em.
