I'm just now watching the very end of the episode and I have to say, man, how awkward have those Damian/Matheus duets been? Yikes. I think they were definitely right in eliminating Matheus. I just don't think his voice or acting ability are up to par.
This is the first week where we really saw Hannah shine, which I loved. I also liked Lindsay this week and felt sorry for her that Cameron was SO overly concerned with that little kiss. How on earth does he think he'll have an acting career if he won't even kiss someone on camera? I can appreciate the fact that he wants to stay faithful to his girl, but it's not as if Lindsay cornered him somewhere offset and laid one on him.
OTOH, Samuel's reaction to Marissa kissing him was adorable! You could tell it totally made his day. He's such an interesting dichotomy: he looks like he'd be more of a tough rocker kid and he's really very sweet and sensitive. I can totally see him on Glee.
I'm just not feeling Alex. I've never been a big fan. Maybe I think he's too affected or self-conscious in the way he acts on camera. I'm just not that impressed. It can't only be about vocal pyrotechnics.
