Blake reprises "You Give Love A Bad Name" by Bon Jovi, showing off his superior beatboxing skills. Randy gives him a 10 for beatboxing but says the vocals weren't all there which Simon agrees with. Paula said something about a nice tie - thanks, Paula. Jordin breaks out a new one, Christina Aguilera's "Fighter". While Randy & Paula gave her high marks, Simon didn't think her vocals were so great & gave round 1 to Blake.
Blake breaks another Maroon 5 song (he has previously sung "This Love"), performing "She Will Be Loved". Randy compliments his vocals in this round which proves Blake has both the vocal & entertaining skills. Paula thought he sang with ease but Simon felt the song didn't have much of an impact. Jordin chooses a Martina McBride's "A Broken Wing" which she sang earlier in the season. The judges rave & it seems round 2 goes to Jordin.
Blake & Jordin sing the winning song from the songwriting competition. Blake's song is called "This Is My Now" - the judges didn't love the vocals mostly because it's not in his genre. This is certainly not the king of song we would expect to hear from Blake. Jordin closes the show with the same song & I'm having flashbacks to Kelly/Justin & season 1's "A Moment Like This". The song was very skewed for Kelly to win & I worry producers are doing the same here. The judges feel Jordin deserves it all.
