Before the Tony Lucca's fans descend upon me and peck out my eardrums, let me just say: I like Tony Lucca, okay? Let him play "Devil Town" or "Death of Me," and I could listen to him strummy-strummy-strum all day long. Tonight, his version of Maroon 5's "Harder To Breathe" was pretty solid, and his duet with Adam on the Beatles' "Yesterday" was lovely. Those guys can harmonize!
But I worry that Tony's music just translates better in a bar than it does on stage. Nothing he did this season was all that memorable until he started a beef with Christina by covering Britney Spears' "Baby One More Time." (It's a long story.) And honestly, it's lame that he's now getting most of his attention at Christina's expense. I can't believe he chose Jay-Z's "99 Problems" for his showpiece. Doing a bluegrass version of this song isn't exactly an original idea: Hugo did it first, and way better, back in 2010. Also, didn't the b--tch part feel a little pointed? When Christina complained that "the lyrical connotation was a little derogatory toward women," she was half-right. It was derogatory toward one woman in particular: Christina herself.
At first, Adam tried to defend Tony's song choice. "The [b--tch] is life getting at you," he explained. "It's called a metaphor." But when Christina corrected him, pointing out that Jay-Z specifically mentions "girl problems," Adam just gave up and stripped down to his "Team Xtina" t-shirt.
Cool idea, but Cee Lo's "No Problems" t-shirt was funnier. Besides, if Adam really believed in metaphors, then why did he need to wear that shirt?

Tony Lucca is the only one I think would be successful outside of the show and his duet with Adam slayed my whole life. It literally had my head on the guillotine and when Adam started singing it was off with my head.

Interscope is just salvaging what they can from an unfortunate situation, it has nothing to do with Gaga being desperate.
