i am so beyond proud of the swon brothers for all they have accomplished. their biggest dreams literally came true this week, and they deserved it. they are humble, talented, selfless, and so generous. they don’t rub their success in anyone’s face and they love their family, friends, fans, and coach through and through. their performances blow my mind a little bit more every week and i honestly can’t wait to see more.
So now that I have gotten over my sadness that Amber has left the competition (I’m not completely over it, but enough to write) I’m totally going for my second fave that is left and that’s The Swon Brothers! I want them to win for many reasons, none of those reasons being “Because you want Blake to have a 3-peat” because no.. I vote based on who I like, not who their coach is. Also, not because “You’re a country fan and want a country artist to win” also.. No. Country is actually one of my least favorites. (Not saying I dislike it, I just like it a lot less than alternative, folk/pop, classic rock, oldies, r&b, etc.) I want them to win because I have enjoyed all of their performances and loved many of them. I got to see them at a taping and they were even better live and they are also hilarious. I won’t bad mouth the other two but I WILL say that out of the three left I feel like the Swon Brothers have a lot of fans of their own, not just because their coach, their story, their looks or some people’s perception of their lack thereof. Side note: I don’t think there’s anything wrong with Michelle’s looks and it makes me sad that my 9yo sister asked me why they kept talking about her like she was ugly. *sigh* sorry for the long, late night rant.. I’ll blame lack of sleep. :)
