Ohhhhhh. I figured he was an athlete of some sort. I've definitely heard of RG but didn't recognize him.

I didn't know any of the last 3. I'm not up on popular culture.
The frog should've won.

Final order, with 1st place at top.

Night Angel -- Kandi Burruss
Turtle -- Jesse McCartney
Frog -- Bow Wow
Rhino -- Barry Zito
Kitty -- Jackie Evancho
Astronaut -- Hunter Hayes
Banana -- Bret Michaels
Kangaroo -- Jordyn Woods
White Tiger -- Rob Gronkowski
T-Rex -- JoJo Siwa
Swan -- Bella Thorne
Bear -- Sarah Palin
Taco -- Tom Bergeron
Mouse -- Dionne Warwick
Elephant -- Tony Hawk
Miss Monster -- Chaka Khan
Llama -- Drew Carey
Robot -- Lil Wayne

I know who five of these people are, and what they are famous for, off the top of my head. Another three I kindof knew the name but I needed a little help placing them. The rest, including the top 3, I had no idea who they are. and when the panel is guessing? I don't know who most of the wrong guesses are either.

But it was fun watching anyway!

The two best voices, by far, were Night Angel and Kitty. I guessed from very early on that one of these two would win it. I was surprised Kitty didn't make the final. What a voice! But Night Angel's was equally as good, perhaps a little more powerful and soulful. Frog was fun, but a 1-trick pony. Never actually "sang" like a melody. Only rap. Every performance was rap.

I enjoy the show, but I don't many of these people either.

Drew Carey, Chaka Khan, Dionne Warwick, Tom Bergeron, Sarah Palin, Gronk, and Bret Michaels are the people I know.

So, now that we're through Season 3 has Jenny McCarthy actually become tolerable, or am I suffering from some sort of boiling Stockholm frog thing here?

The latter.

I thought Kitty was the best singer by far, never heard of her though.

I know the bottom 7, Bret Michaels, and I'm assuming Bow Wow is the person who was once "Lil Bow Wow" now that he's an adult.
I looked up the winner and I remember the song "Just Kickin' It." But I haven't heard of her since the mid-90s.

I feel like I might watch the first few episodes of the next season (if there is one) but after about 5 people, I won't know any of the other singers so I may as well stop.
