I'm cool with the weirdness of face-kini Ru, and respect her as the ultimate arbiter of who should wear her crown, regardless of who's beating her mug.
Totally thought Gigi won the closeup lipsync, as soon as she started blinking to the beat. She used her whole face the whole time. Like one of the judges said, Jaida was smart to use the tight frame well. But Gigi had me locked in. And Crystal, I love her, loved the piñata, but...uhuh.
That's what sold her video to me -- plus she threw some respect for Ciara into the performance, which I appreciated. Wasn't no Nelly Furtado in Crys
