They were all very good, but I particularly liked Omira for their great lead singer, Marissa Pontecorvo.

Fairday Skyline sounds like a band you'd see on Warped or Bamboozle. I hope they move on. Would love to see more from those guys!

Mick Watley and Fairday were both very entertaining, but Mick Watley has my vote. They will be rockstars one day and we saw them first. The drummer reminds me of Travis Barker which is impressive. Vote for them so we can see them again in the finals.

Watched the vids for si. Lots of talent in all 3 but I'm sry, most of it puts me to sleep. Smart move getting the American Idol chick for Omira Soul but the battle's gotta be fixed if Fairday Skyline doesn't move on.

May. 08 2012 01:05 PM

Omira Soul nailed it!

May. 08 2012 12:56 PM

I liked all of the final 5, but Cate Song was the only one I listened to on repeat. Just wow. Keep it up! You got my vote!

SWEET FIX is the hot mix. They're #1!!!

Mar. 08 2012 08:47 AM
the_hme from Jersey City, NJ

We were the and can tell you no one captivated the audience more than Cate Song. We did like a couple other bands, but to sit there and listen to them, I don't think so. Furthermore, it is important to give credit to all the bands that performed, for it takes a lot to stand up there and try to entertain such a wide range of tastes in the audience. Thank you WNYC!!!

Mar. 07 2012 07:40 PM

Our vote is sinner man. what a great band.we wish all of the bands the bestbut our vote is the sinners

Great Apes are so Funking amazing. look how the singer moves, and how he sounds is equal or better. reminds me of a funky McJagger... LOVE THE GREAT APES!

Mar. 07 2012 02:13 PM
Paula from CA

Sinner Man is fabulous! It is the type of music to which you can dance, sing with, or just listen and enjoy. Their energy is contagious!

So from Paris - France

When the sky's too grey in Paris, I listen to the Great Apes and their funky soul makes a smile grow in my body 'til I get up dancing in the morning. So, as international artists, I think they would be the best artists to represent Queens in this battle. bisous et bon courage à tous!

Mar. 06 2012 03:35 PM

Go Sweet Fix!!!

Mar. 06 2012 01:41 AM

Go Shelly!
