It didn't surprise me that Holly went home. She really botched that performance of Creep. She has moments of talent, but is very inconsistent. Oh well.
The thing about the pre-live rounds is that everything is done in a vacuum. If Blake had known Holly would light up iTunes like no one else in season 5, he would've kept her and then pushed everyone else on his team down to prop her up. Not saying that's fair, but when have the coaches ever been fair? Hell, last week CeeLo picked the less talented singer on the basis that he's been working harder at making music a career.
