COLOR US ENTERTAINED Tickled pink, even!
Other nice surprises tonight: Amanda finally got a chance to relax in the Sprint Skybox as one of the first contestants declared to be safe. (Undoubtedly, this was the first time someone has actually enjoyed a stay in the Sprint Skybox.) Adam resisted the urge to spin something Blake said into a premature ejaculation joke.

And if nothing else,the confessional segments are going to be a lot duller now that he's gone. Sorry, Cassadee; "Flatulence could send me home!" just isn't as funny as claiming that your pre-show ritual is looking at yourself in the mirror. (And you just know that what Cody said was Dez's real ritual as well.)
Do you think that the right folks went home tonight -- or did voters miss the mark by ousting Dez and Cody? How do you think Christina will cope with not having a single singer in the semi-semi-finals? Which member of the Top 6 do you want to win, and which one do you think is most likely to win?

If not, what do you say we just forget about The Voice for awhile and watch some fun vintage Muppet videos instead? Here, I'll get the ball rolling:
