If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men. - St. Francis of Assisi
That was an incredible evening. Contrary to what many people here say, I quite enjoyed all the performances. However, I do think that of the 4, Hollie should go home and if she does, it has absolutely nothing to do with how the judges were fawning over Joshua and Jessica. I mean seriously, the judges have given Hollie standing O's and great feeedback and rightly so as she deserved them and no one complained about that but when they give her negative feedback which in my opinion based on last night's performance was deserved, the judges were being unfair and out to sway America's votes. This really leaves me scratching my head....
In the end, the most popular contestant will win, not the best singer and if Hollie wins because she's the most popular, so be it but I do not see her having a successful career as Joshua, Jessica or Phillip. These 3 are more commercial, win or lose they will have a great career ahead of them. IMHO
Also ... notice that Hollie was inspired by "I can't make you Love me" as a love song, and perhaps knew there was "another way into the song" but wasn't counseled that way. In fact it was never mentioned until the critique. Jessica however, was prompted regarding her song choice telling people she's not going home. All things are not equal.
Thus what I think is deserved is some equal treatment.
Jessica has already been eliminated and then saved by the judges, making her the judges choice not ours. Maybe they should just have a judges favorite at the end.In the end, the most popular contestant will win, not the best singer and if Hollie wins because she's the most popular, so be it but I do not see her having a successful career as Joshua, Jessica or Phillip.

Just for fun, let's look at Jennifer and Steven when they sing to see just how connected to their lyrics they are. Neither are that gifted vocally, but they preach something that seems off. IMO it was something they could attack Hollie on and get away with it.
On second thought, do I really have to watch Jennifer perform tonight? YUCK!
Glad to read through this thread and see some Joshua fans. Yay! I like him because the dude can sing his butt off. I like that old school R&B style.
I don't understand why people let the judges sway them so much. Why can't one just like or dislike who they choose and be done with it? Just like we all have our opinions, so do they.
Btw, I think the band has been amazing this season, especially last night. Just awesome!
I think the band has done a good job.
