Oh Lyric145...we’re gonna miss you. Especially Lyric Da Queen and her bedazzled eyepatches!

Mario cut right to the chase tonight, announcing the first of the evening’s two eliminations at the top of the hour. Lyric145, the hip-hop trio fronted by the charismatic Lyric Da Queen, impressed us so much during their run, but it seems the majority of voters didn’t share our love for hip-hop version of Queen songs. It’s rough being part of the vanguard, you guys.

We can’t help but wonder if things would be different had Simon made song choices that were more, you know, hip-hop. Alas, we’ll never know.
