I opted to skip it last night as I had NO interest in any of the acts. I watched Smackdown in stead. Yes, Smackdown. I was entertained, too. My FIANCEE even watched it with me, and the only unkind word she had was during the catfight: "Oh, THIS is intelligent." I love her. ;-) Anyone watch Hit Me last night? Did I miss anything good? I went to their website and see that PM Dawn won. Sorry I missed it. Juice looks haggard, too.
PM Dawn's version of "Blurry" was fantastic. Took a very generic rocker and really made something of it. Not that I'm surprised, since they've done great things with rock songs in the past (their version of "Norwegian Wood" is the best Beatle remake ever. EVER!).
The other cover songs were "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" by Missing Persons (they should have slowed it down; the beat was too fast for Dale's style); "Days Go By" by Animotion; "Pieces Of Me" by Juice Newton; and "Foolish" by Shannon. Nothing to write home about, really.
The performances I really liked from the show (I missed the first couple) were "Blurry", "1985", "White Flag", and "Thank You".
I thought it was just his ability to nullify anything that's happening to him, like he did twice previously with the drugs. In this case, it didn't just allow Sylar to step out of time with Hiro, it turned off Hiro's powers completely.
