  3. omg i vote for both of them to go home that was horrible karaoke at best. And yes wendy if your asking your self if i could do better I can. Maybe it was song choice im not sure either way they both need to get some voice lessons and try again. Where is Simon when you need him.

    what ever happened to Matthew Flynn I know him to be an extraordinary talent has been on Wendy’s show yet for the Next Great Voice I know he auditioned…??

    I think Monet was better but maybe the fact that Nicole had four people with her made the difference. I think the unbiase audience was half and half and her family made the difference. She was pitchy but she has the better stage presence. Monet was also dress like she was going to waitress as a upscale restuarant. I think Monet won on vocals and Nicole one on stage presence.

  6. Plz for give my misspelling of words. lls!!!

    Monet was the better singer. She was on key and had a better pitch. Whoever has to work with Nicole will have to give her voice lessons. Talent has everything to do with preparation. We, as consumers, have everything to do with who is popular and who is not. Use your buying powers to support the images you want to see and hear; stop complaining because in the end the power is yours. The bottomline in showbiz is what sells. Monet you rocked and if singing is what you want to do use this as a platform to motivate yourself to push harder. Good luck, Girl.

    Wendy, how can my daughter come and sing?

  11. How do you sign up to compete? Ima guy is it only for girls?

    Did you actually think those whites were gonna pick a dark complex Black. Monet was absolutely the best singer. But that’s a prejudice audience that’s why it doesn’t bother them that Wendy talks about people all the time.

  13. Nicole is the TOTAL package. She’s more marketable….Monet looks like someone’s mom. I’m sorry but in the media is very cut throat and it’s a visual market based on tour and concert sales. I’m actually surprised they didn’t find more worthy contestants all together. IJS
